Pompeii and Herculaneum excursion
The ideal excursion for people who want to travel back in time. A total immersion in the Roman era discovering the secrets of two of the most famous archaeological poles in the world:
Pompeii, a metropolis of antiquity situated at the foot of the Vesuvius, buried with its inhabitants by burning fragments of lava and ashes in 79 a.C. To visit it is a unique experience comparable to a time machine capable of launching the visitor back in time two-thousand years.
All the activities rotate round the Foro, an ample covered market near which the most important public and religious buildings rose: the Basilica to the Temples, from the Terme (thermal baths) to Macellum, from the Theatres to the Amphi-theatre, from the gymnasium to the brothel and everywhere numerous noble buildings, a testimony of refined taste for arte and architecture of the people of Pompei.
Herculaneum, another city situated at the foot of the Vesuvius which was completely destroyed by the eruption of 79 a.C.
Different from Pompeii because it wasn’t buried by fragments of lava and ashes, but by mud and lava which has consented a better preservation of the furnishings and of the wooden structures of the homes, in addition to the pavements, mosaics, frescoes, sculptures, vases, as well as human remains. Observing these fantastic details one can reconstruct the way of life, the customs and habits of the people who lived in the city about two-thousand years ago.
