Enjoy a preview of the remarkable places in our Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Tour VIDEO:



Our first stop will be at the archaeological site of Pompeii, a former prosperous ancient Roman town that became entombed in volcanic mud when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD.

It wasn’t until about 1,500 years later that first excavations began in Pompeii, and excavations continue even now. 

Pompeii existed even before it became a Roman city.  It is believed to have been founded sometime in the 7th or 6th century BC by the legendary Osci, an Italic civilization that was once a rival of Rome.  The root of the name Pompeii , "pompe", has been associated with the Oscan word for "five".  In 80 BC, Pompeii became a colony of Rome as the Roman Republic expanded its territory.

The sudden eruption of the massive volcano killed the inhabitants of Pompeii and buried the city under tons of ash, thus preserving it for centuries.

Frozen in time, we get to see Pompeii how it was in its final monuments, its ell preserved artifacts and architecture offering detailed glimpses into this unfortunate ancient city.

Here you can walk in the footsteps of the ancient locals along the distressed cobblestone streets through the remarkable ruins of once impressive villas with vivid frescoes, apartment buildings, bars, workshops, and more.

To get the most out of your visit to Pompeii we recommend a local licensed guide whose expert knowledge and detailed narrative will enhance your experience and understanding of this captivating ancient city. You may e-mail us for more information on booking a licensed guide and pricing.
