With your guide learn how the town was buried under molten ash and lava by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79AD. Your guide will bring the Roman Republic to life as you experience the remarkably intact structures and learn how the Romans lived both in public and private.

Discover the highlights of Pompeii, such as the Basilica (Court House) and the Forum - center of political and social life during the Roman Empire. See the Lupanar (brothel), House of the Faun, Termopolium Capuano and House of the Tragic Poet.
