Inside the Incredible Ruins of Pompeii

Pompeii

Cities and Towns in Campania

Pompeii is one of the largest and most visited archeological sites in Italy.  It is an ancient city in southern Italy, in the region of Campania that was completely buried by the dust and ash that descended upon it when Mount Vesuvius erupted on August 24th, 79, A.D. and remained covered until 1748, when it was rediscovered by archaelogists who to date continue to work on this incredible archeological site.  

But reading about the destruction of Pompeii (or Herculaneum or Stabaie which were also obliterated by the eruption), or even seeing pictures of the now excavated city, does not prepare one for the impact of standing in the midst of its ruins, or looking at the bodies of the dead, frozen in last moments of horror.

Whether you decide to visit Pompeii on your own or decide to visit with a tour, we strongly recommend you having a guide in this site particularly even if you don`t have one in any other, it is well worth it.

There are various guided tours we offer to Pompeii that you can see the links to below, however to really understand Pompeii and what happened here, we highly recommend you visiting Mt. Vesuvius which is one of the largest Volcanic Craters in Europe and also visiting Heraculaneum, the sea-side village along the coast that will reveal to you in person just how far the lava from the crater spread.  It was an enormous explosion that touched the lives of an entire society and killed one of the most remarkable ancient cultures man-kind has ever known.  

Here are a few tours we offer to Pompeii and the Surrounding Area:

Half Day Tour of Pompeii -  Departing from Either Sorrento or Naples 
Private Tour of Pompeii & Mt. Vesuvius Departing - Departing from either Sorrento, Naples or the Amalfi Coast 
Full Day Tour of Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius Wineries with Lunch Inluded

Pompeii & Herculaneum

If you like walking, and are interested in the ancient world, this is the tour for you. Pompeii and Herculaneum are the largest towns of the five buried by the Vesuvian eruption of 79 AD, and they are also the most fully excavated, although they were buried by the same eruption, Pompeii was covered mainly by ash, and Herculaneum by mud and lava, it is interesting to compare building techniques and life style walking round the sites, as Pompeii lived off commerce. Where as Herculaneum was a fishing community, but by the first century it was becoming a fashionable holiday resort both towns were discovered and excavated mid 18th century. About 75% of Pompeii has now been excavated, compared to 25 % of Herculaneum, where the new town been built over the archaeological site.
