Pompei in Day
We will depart to uncover some of the secrets of Pompeii and view some of the most authentic and amazing archaeological sites in the world.
The departure from Rome will be at 8:00am and within about 2 hours will have reached our destination…Pompeii.
Our first stop before reaching the excavations of Pompeii will be the school of the cameos. It is here that you will find the utmost artistic expression which the local craftsmen have mastered in the decoration of corals and shells.
You will be able to view a live demonstration as the crafty hands of the local teachers work these materials in the same manner as the ancient Romans, 2000 years ago. This brief twenty minute stop is well worth the visit as it gives light to an art that was almost lost until the unearthing of Pompeii which then brought back a recovery in its recognition.
We arrive in Pompeii shortly afterwards, where we will join an authorized guide for a two hour tour of the ruins and its relics. This exceptional tour of the excavations with its temples, villas, houses, circus, the school of the gladiators, etc., will be one you will never forget for it was Pompeii’s abrupt entombment under the ashes of its neighboring volcano that made this the city that was frozen in time.
Your private guide will be at your complete disposal to answer any of your questions and satisfy your thirst for knowledge. At the end of the tour, we suggest a lunch in one of the local restaurants located at the base of the volcano, Vesuvius. Obviously, fish and limoncello are a must before returning back to Rome.
We will return to Rome by 5.30/6.00pm
