What you'll do

This online tour is an appetizer of Pompeii: we will "escape" from the lockdown and move back into Roman times!

I'll tell you the history of the city, from the beginning to the eruption, and then to the discovery.

You'll get an introduction to the daily life of 2000 years ago, discovering the private and public buildings that characterize the ancient city.

During our virtual trip, we will visit some of the these attractions: the Amphitheater (Roman gladiator stadium), the Thermopolium (Roman snack bar), an example of a Roman house, the thermal baths, the Lupanare, and the Forum (main square).

I'll also share the techniques that archaeologists use to create the plaster casts of the victims of the eruption of the Vesuvius.

Looking at maps videos and photos, you will have a taste of the Roman times that'll give you an idea for a future offline visit.

Of course, I'll be happy to answer all of your questions, too!

*This experience is great for private groups, for team-building and for students and schools*

**Yana will be my co-host for the experience in chinese every saturday and sunday**

***If you are interested in other days and timing don't hesitate to contact me and I will try to arrange that for you!***

**** When the borders reopen see you on my offline experience: "Uncrowded Pompeii with an archaeologist" (https://www.airbnb.it/experiences/253189) ***

Welcome! My name is Roberto. I am an archaeologist and an authorized guide of the Campania Region.

I obtained a bachelor's degree in Cultural Heritage, master's degree in Classical Archaeology, and a post-graduate degree in Archeological Heritage.

I've been an authorized guide of Campania Region since 2011, and I have also worked as an archaeologist all around the Mediterranean Sea.

I guide people to discover the ancient history and beauty of Pompeii, the famous site buried by the eruption of the Vesuvius in 79 AD.

I lead an experience on Airbnb called "Uncrowded Pompeii" (https://www.airbnb.it/experiences/253189) that is the best rated offline experience of Pompeii.
With this hard situation I'm ready for a new challenge to share my knowledge to everyone on this special online tour!

Roberto structured the experience well, so we had time for questions and conversation. He also balanced well between overview and details. We are grateful for his time and expertise. He brought the city alive for us.
