Trip Info

On a classic two-hour walking tour our guides make the ancient city come back to life again. To enter the site, you will be taken through one of the main gates and be asked to walk along the ancient streets characterized by chariot ruts and stepping stones, the latter, a clever solution to a universal problem… how to cross the street in inclement weather without getting one’s feet wet. Our itinerary also includes the two theatres of the city: the Odeion for musical events and mime acts and the big theatre for comedies and tragedies.

You will see the typical shops and buildings which were frequented on a daily basis: the bakeries, still with their wood burning ovens, the termopoliums with their original counters, the public baths with their elegant stucco decorations, the brothel (Lupanare) with five rooms containing erotic paintings (in presence of children at the beginning of the guided tour, your guide will ask you whether you wish to visit the red light district or not), some “domus” houses where the ordinary people lived and also those which to the members of the upper-class with their courtyards and private rooms.

Upon arrival at the Forum, the religious, economic, political and civic centre in a Roman town, you will be surrounded by the most important public buildings: the Basilica, the municipal offices, the markets, the building of Eumachia or wool market, and the sanctuaries of various gods, including the Capitolium dedicated to the Capitoline Triad and the temples to Vespasian and Apollo.

Of course this tour will include also the visit to the plaster casts of the victims of the eruption, caught in their last moments still with the shock on their faces.
