AD 79. A devastating volcanic eruption at Mount Vesuvius results in an entire Roman town being completely submerged in rubble and ash. The majority of the town's inhabitants manage to flee and the bodies of the 10% who are left behind remain preserved in time. 

Despite the suffering and destruction wrought on the town by the eruption, the disaster is the only reason that the ways of life of this advanced ancient civilisation could gradually be pieced together; indeed, without the eruption, such an intimate connection between past and present would simply not exist: ash buried much of the town, preserving it as a wonderful archaeological resource for future generations – the buildings, art, artefacts, and bodies forever frozen offer a unique window on the ancient world.

Due to the vast size of Pompeii, a visit must be well-planned to ensure you get the most out of your time. On this tour, you will have your own private guide and so will be able to maximise your time and focus on the things that interest you. Uncover the most fascinating artefacts, without the hindrance of being in a large group. 

Your day will begin in the early morning in Rome, where you will be collected by private car from your hotel and be driven to Pompeii with your guide. You will spend several hours on site exploring and discussing the artefacts with your guide before driving to Naples for lunch and a visit to the Archaeology Museum. You will then be able to relax after a long day on your return journey to Rome by car.
