The sudden eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 A. D. buried completely with ash and pumice stones Pompeii and the neighboring towns. Over the centuries Pompeii was "forgotten". Only by chance in the last years of the XVI century the city was rediscovered following the construction of a canal, which channeled the waters of the river Sarno to Torre Annunziata. That channel crossed the ancient Pompeii site from east to west. However, despite the authoritative presence of the architect Domenico Fontana, who directed the works, nobody gave so much weight to the findings discovered. Only in 1748 - the excavations of Herculaneum began 10 years earlier, in 1738 - officially the excavations of Pompeii begin in order to bring to light the famous town of Campania.

Today in Pompeii one can see the entire urban planning, the interiors of the houses, the daily life with all the furnishings, the objects for common use: in other words, what constituted the "essence, the “soul” of a city. This can be found only in Pompeii. Therefore the visit of this archaeological site is truly something unique.

For a so special archaeological tour it is worth giving yourselves the best. Let yourself be guided by a real English-speaking archaeologist in the most important Roman archaeological site in the world. With his help you will fully rebuild the last hours following the explosion of Mount Vesuvius even through small personal stories, suggested by the remains found in the excavations. Following the story of the eruption we could better see this living fragment of ancient Rome, which remained crystallized over time.

WHY A REAL ARCHAEOLOGIST AS YOUR PRIVATE GUIDE TO POMPEII RUINS? 

If you want to visit Pompeii with a guide that can provide you with high-profile scientific information and make your experience unforgettable, an English-speaking archaeologist with tourist guide qualification is just what you need. An archaeologist who has experience and can pass on his knowledge with simple and understandable words.   We also suggest you to explore Pompeii with a real English-speaking archaeologist for another important reason. Pompeii has two unique features in the world:   a) Pompeii is an intact Roman city of 65 hectares (150 acres) with the entire city walls, the necropolis (the burial ground) , the Forum, the temples, the houses, the Thermal Baths, the shops and the streets.  b) Ash and the pumice stones have preserved very well many ancient buildings: today it is possible to enter, for example, the ancient houses, still decorated with frescoes and mosaics, fountains and gardens.It is therefore worthwhile to be guided by a particularly expert and competent person, such as an archaeologist. But there is another important reason to choose our visit to Pompeii ruins with a real English-speaking archaeologist.The ancient objects found in Pompeii have their own precise meaning, they "talk" to us and tell us many singular and suggestive stories that no text of ancient history can refer to. For example, the 81 loaves of bread found two thousand years later still in the bakery of Modestus describe more than a thousand words the last moments of life of the baker. Instead of lingering in baking bread, the wise craftsman immediately understood that something tragic was coming to him and, panicked, ran away without bothering about his freshly baked bread. 

 

Ancient objects "tell" us stories in a language that only the archaeologist understands. 

This private guided tour in Pompeii with an archaeologist at your complete disposal lasts 2 hours. Generally, your archaeologist will follow a "classic" itinerary with you in order to maximize the number of monuments you can visit in two hours. But the itinerary can also be decided together with our expert: flexibility is maximum but it is advisable that you let us know your preferences in advance. In case of physical problems in walking (for example) it will be advisable to inform us in advance of any difficulties so as to plan in advance the best possible route to visit Pompeii with your private English-speaking archaeologist. 

THIS IS A PRIVATE DAY VISIT WITH A PRICE NOT BASED ON THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE TRAVELLING IN YOUR PARTY!

THIS VISIT WILL OPERATE RAIN OR SHINE, SO BE PREPARED FOR ALL WEATHER CONDITIONS.
