All these are great reasons for joining this group tour that will offer you the possibility to travel back in time, in 79 AD, when the violent eruption of Vesuvius surprised the citizen of Pompeii. The guided visit to the archeological site will last about 2 hours, and you have the chance to see the main features of the ancient city destroyed in that year, such as baths, bakeries, arena, brothel and many others. An official excavation guide will provide you interesting information about all these.
