Not many places around the world can evoke the mysterious nature one can experience when they take a trip to Pompeii, the ancient Roman city. This Pompeii half day tour is a fascinating as you take a walk through over two thousand years of history to uncover the tragic fate of this legendary city's inhabitants when Mt. Vesuvius erupted in 79 A.D. The city itself is a sight to behold with much of this intriguing world is still visible to the naked eye.
As with most ruins or ancient archeological sites, it can be difficult to understand exactly what you see (that’s why alcaexcursions suggestion to hire a local guide comes into action) your private guide will help you imagine the scene from long ago through fun stories, tales and legend. The Sanctuary, the Amphitheatre and the local brothel are all still there.
As mentioned, the physical remnants of this old world are there to be seen but the real value of this half day tour to Pompeii lies within learning about the people, the politics and the old rule which held power over the city. Regardless of what you see, one thing is for sure; as you walk in the footsteps of decorated gladiators and along the streets strewn with thermal baths and taverns, you will be transported to a time long ago before the mighty volcanoes descended on this spectacular ancient city.
So after the visit of Pompeii, we can return to the hotel or if in addition to being a lover of history, you are also a lover of wine, good food, panoramas and relaxation, I suggest you have a loving light lunch with tasting of local product. Sip one of the best Italian wines, all while you can admire vineyards, olive trees and the Vesuvius.
Experience, unique wines, born in the shadow of the volcano.
