On this tour, you’ll get to step back in time with a guided walk around the streets of Pompeii. Starting at the port, you’ll hop on a coach with your guide for a 40-minute journey to the ancient Roman city. When you arrive, you’ll have a short break to snap some pictures of Mount Vesuvius off in the distance. The UNESCO-dubbed ruins are Italy’s most visited tourist attraction, and you’ll see why when you start your tour. Your expert guide will tell you what life was like in the city before the volcanic eruption that buried it in 79AD. Public notices, love letters and over 15,000 works of art are a few of the things you’ll be able to see during your walk through the preserved mansions, public baths and temples. And before you set off back to the port, you’ll also visit a storehouse, where casts of bodies are on display. They offer a glimpse into what each person’s final moments were like during the disaster.
