Follow your professional guide and take a tour through the remains of this UNESCO world heritage site frozen in time for about 2,000 years. Learn all about the Forum, Thermal Baths, Vetti’s House, the Lupanare and discover how ordinary Roman citizens lived 2.000 years ago.

Following your Pompeii Ruins tour have a break in a local restaurant to enjoy a well-deserved Napolitano pizza lunch. Then drive close to the summit of Vesuvius, the only active volcano in continental Europe, and from there take a short walk to the rim of the crater.
