Accompanied by your knowledgeable art guide, traverse the ancient ruins of Pompeii—an ancient Roman city nestled at the base of Mount Vesuvius.

On that fateful day, August 24, 79 AD, the colossal eruption of Mount Vesuvius unleashed a deluge of volcanic debris, annihilating every structure and engulfing the estimated population of 10,000 to 20,000 inhabitants in lethal clouds of gas.

Subsequently, Pompeii lay hidden beneath layers of ash and stone until the 1800s, when the first excavations commenced, unearthing its captivating splendors.

Thanks to the preserving qualities of the volcanic ash, Pompeii has been frozen in time, enabling visitors like yourself to embark on a journey through an authentic open-air museum.

During your two-hour tour, accompanied by your private art expert guide, you will encounter the most significant areas and ancient thoroughfares of Pompeii. Prepare to be captivated by the following highlights:

The Forum, the epicenter of religious and economic life, where the temples of Apollo, Venus, and Jupiter stood.

The House of Faun, an impressive and expansive private dwelling within Pompeii. It derives its name from the exquisite bronze sculpture of a dancing faun discovered on its premises, now housed in the Archaeological Museum of Naples.

The Termopolium, a remarkably well-preserved ancient "fast food" establishment recently unearthed. This refreshment venue catered to Pompeii's foreign visitors, offering delectable cuisine and fine wines.

The House of the Tragic Poet, a stunning example of a Roman residence, renowned for its exquisitely crafted mosaic floors, frescoes, and a famous mosaic depicting a vigilant guard dog (Cave Canem) adorning its entrance hall.

With the expertise of your guide and the informative introduction provided, you will gain profound insights and make the most of your Pompeii tour.
