About
This special tour  with Michael, English mothertongue professional guide, specialized in archaeological sites, intends to let you feel as if the inhabitants of the ancient town of Herculaneum have come to life again! The duration is about 2 hours, from entry through the ticket barrier and you'll see the villas, shops, thermae and wonderful frescoes and mosaics. - and, of course, other amazing points. This compelling experience wants you to walk away with, still fresh in your mind, the smells, sights and, even, dreams, which marked the daily experience of the rather unfortunate inhabitants of this Roman sea-side town,  with a growing sense of personal empathy for the immense tragedy they were all-of-a-sudden the victims to.

Visiting the Pompei archeological site was just such an amazing experience. We booked a 2 hour small group guided tour with an archeologist. I can’t recommend this visit more. Being shown around with a guide made it just so much more interesting. Highly recommend visiting Pompei for the day and definitely recommend getting an archeologist to take you through the tour. Just wish we had an extra day to visit Mt Vesuvius and Herculaneum.

Booked with Happy Tours through BA Holidays.
Flat shoes!!! Tours guide Massimo his first season - your wouldn't think so :))
He was great, young and knowledgable :))
I did not expect such an intact place or so large...
It's so hard to imagine the terror of the people of Pompeii and Herculano ...
Why would anyone live on a volcano..... When you know the answer - it seems obvious!

Otherwise why would they have ...

Trip included the visit to Pompeii, Herculaneum and lunch ...

A must do trip - busy but you don't notice anyone else when you get caught up in it all
