Attractions to visit in Pompeii Tour

Pompeii. The liveliest of the dead cities” [cite Pliny The Younger]

Pompeii is not a ghost town, because everything you are going to see speaks about life, the life of 2000 years ago. It’s a city where men, women, children, merchants, craftsmen, politicians lived...and everything speaks about them. Pompeii was crystallized from the eruption of the volcano, but today you can relive it; here you can breathe this life, and we want to make you feel this life in the ruins.

As all history books witness, Pompeii was an important ancient Roman Town whose story was completely marked by the terrible Vesuvius eruption in 79 AD. As a result of the ruins' discovery in the 16th century and a lot of excavations, Pompeii is now an essential Italian tourist destination. Nowadays the Pompeii tour gives us the privilege to appreciate some following relevant attractions brought back to life, such as:

  • The ancient streets of Pompeii, with the typical flooring called “Basolato” and the main street, Via dell'Abbondanza, whose name comes from a bas-relief that adorns a fountain placed in the initial section, near the Forum.
  • The Ancient Teatro Grande and Teatro Piccolo. These very aged theatres increase in a considerable way the historical and artistic heritage offered by Pompeii.
  • The Pompeii Forum. All Roman cities were built with the idea to locate forums at the center; this is due to the conviction that the roman square represented the social life core. As a matter of fact, the forum was the part of the town where markets took place and people met to talk about different topics. Once entered the forum, tourists will be able to admire the Temple of Jupiter.
  • The Stabian Baths. It was a structure very much appreciated by Romans: it was regarded as the place where roman citizens could relax and restore themselves.

Pompeii was not the only town involved in the Vesuvius eruption: Ercolano, Stabiae, Oplontis were also destroyed during the terrifying eruption of 79 A.D. It means that an important archaeological richness characterizes some of the most famous Vesuvian towns situated on the foot of the volcano.

On the journey between Naples and Pompeii, we are going to drive exactly in this area, and admiring the rich vegetation that characterizes the surface of the volcano, the Local Guide will show you some of these famous Vesuvian towns, telling you the incredible history of these places.
