Pompeii and Herculaneum tour Skip the line

Walking through the streets of Pompeii and Herculaneum is a unique experience which allows customers to imagine and sometimes “feel” the daily life of ancient people. Children and adults will surely enjoy this tour as it gives the opportunity to enter the houses of rich roman families and see how they were organized, how they enjoyed their life and how they spent their time. It will also allow to see the difference between the two cities when they were alive and when they were buried differently at the time of the 79 AD eruption of Mount Vesuvius. A visit to the plaster casts of people in Pompeii will surely give an opportunity to better understand what happened during the eruption. The residents of Pompeii were covered under ash and lapilli stones. The citizens of Herculaneum, on the contrary, were killed by the heat of the pyroclastic flow which buried the city.
