Full description
This tour consists in a marvelous walk around of the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, buried from the ashes of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 A.D. On this tour you'll be able to see all the major highlights. A walk in Pompeii is a very intense experience; you'll have the feeling of wandering in a town that is still alive. Learn about the history of the town and how the Romans lived and see all the most important public buildings and private houses on a walking tour. Highlights include the Marina gate, the basilica, the forum, the forum baths, the lupanar (brothel), the bakery, the house of Faun, the Termopolium Capuano, the house of Tragic Poet and the plaster casts. Stop for lunch in a typical restaurant, winery or pizzeria. Then go to Herculaneum for another private guided tour. Herculaneum is much smaller but better preserved than Pompeii. While Pompeii was covered in four to five meters of ashes, a landslide of 20-meter deep mud buried Herculaneum.  Carbonized wooden objects, intact paintings and mosaics are still preserved and the city will come to life with a two-hour tour by your guide. Highlights include the Temple of the Augustali, the beach where more then 300 skeletons were found, the thermal baths, the forum, the house of Neptune and Amphitrite, the Samnite house, the gymnasium, the house of the Dears and much more.

Great tour, wonderful guid and driver!!

This tour was expensive, but very worth it!! We would not have gotten as much out of the day if it weren't for Gabriella and her wealth of knowledge about both places. She was very pleasant, and made our day very enjoyable, our driver was wonderful too, I believe his name was Luca, but now unfortunately I am not 100 percent certain, he was very pleasant and safely got us from one place to the next.
