What you'll do
Go back on time to explore one of the most fascinating archaeological sites in world. Herculaneum is a rich city of merchants and nobility, whose life ended dramatically fast. The city was destroyed in just few minutes by the Mt. Vesuvius eruption in 79 A.D. Pompeii, Oplontis and Stabiae were destroyed either. While you can’t hope to see everything with a single tour in Pompeii, you can get a full picture of Herculaneum visiting an array of different private buildings types and public spaces. I will give you insights and details that you cannot find on books! During the experience, I will explain you the history of the town and day life, providing a complete picture of Roman society.
I am a professional archaeologist and an official tour guide. I studied Archaeology at university and that has been my passion ever since. I have been focusing my career on Pompeii and Herculaneum since 2010, and I think those places are pure magic! I'll do my best to offer an enjoyable experiences. Hope you'll like them! As I direct a team of archaeologists and guides, if necessary I will be replaced by one of my colleagues among Luciano, Giancarlo, Felicia, Paolo, Sergio, Anna, Antonio,Chiara, Paola, Michele and Antonella who all have my same qualifications and the same passion for archaeolgy.
