This day trip from Rome to Pompeii will begin in the morning with a private driver pick-up from your hotel/apartment in Rome with a luxury sedan or minivan.
At the arrival in Pompeii you will meet your private guide, officially licensed and with degree in archaeology or art history. Because of the complexity of the this vast archaeological site, a knowledgeable guide is really a must. Your guide will take you through the ruins of Pompeii for about 2.5-3 hrs, visiting the most interesting sites and telling the history of this Roman city that was buried in the ashes by the vulcanic eruption of mount Vesuvius in 79 AD and that remained buried until the excavations started in the 18th century.
You will walk on the paved roads where two thousand years ago the inhabitants of this city used to walk, you will see the shops where they made their trade, go inside the small homes of the average people and the luxurious villas of the wealthy and you will admire frescoes that arrived to us still rich in colors.
After the tour you will have time for a lunch break in a typical restaurant and then your private car will take you back to your hotel in Rome. This excursion will last about 10 hrs in total (including driving time to Pompeii of about 3 hrs each way).
