Discovering Ancient Pompeii
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Pompeii is considered one of the most fascinating archeological sites in the world, unparalleled to anything else. A haunting yet magical place where time has been captured for eternity. Through interactive, entertaining and educational commentary, your official expert guide will help you to understand how the Romans lived during those fruitful (and ultimately catastrophic) times.
Thanks to our exclusive Pompeii partnership, you will be given the unique opportunity to explore a recently-opened Domus (a home of a high-ranking ancient citizen), still decorated with frescoes of animals, powerful gods and lush landscapes. While exploring the well-preserved fossils and ruins that have been buried beneath volcanic ash for centuries you can take advantage of having a guide dedicated to you and your interests, giving a personal and intimate touch to your time in Pompeii.
Be Back in Rome for an Aperitivo
With your mind still reeling from the spectacular sites of Pompeii you will have a short break for lunch and souvenir shopping before making your way back to the Eternal City. Arriving back in Rome you will find the city winding down for the day, the perfect time for an aperitivo on a sunny Roman terrace while letting the memories of the day wash over you. Rome and Pompeii are both currently experiencing fewer visitors - there has never been a better time to plan a trip, to feel like the streets are yours and to let your imagination run wild unhindered by crowds of people all trying to do the same.
