Pick-up at the hotel at 10:00 and transfer to Pompeii to explore one of the most fascinating places of Naples environs under the narration by a professional guide. In roman time Pompei was a rich and populated town, full of private and public buildings. On a summer's day in 79 A.D, the entire town and around 20.000 of its inhabitants were buried under tons of ash and pumice because of a violent explosion of Mt Vesuvius. A shower of very fine ash was deposited everywhere to a depth of more than six meters, enveloping everything and adhering to the forms of the bodies and of their clothes. Almost 2.000 years later, you have the opportunity to discover the everyday life of the Imperial Age and imagine the panic of the people before the city was so disastrously buried. In two hours walking tour, your guide will show you fascinating places such as the Forum, Thermal Baths, Lupanare, greek theatre and plaster casts of the bodies of Pompeii people burnt by volcanic ashes and lapilli during the eruption in 79 A.D. This is a trip not to be missed for any visitor to this region of Italy. After the tour, return to Naples and drop off at the hotel at around 1:30 p.m.
