Ready to go back to the 79 AD? This experience consists of a marvelous throw-back walk around the ancient city of Pompeii, the Roman city that was covered by vulcanic ashes in 79 AD. THE GROUP SIZE IS 15 PEOPLE OR LESS. Although the area is extremely large, believe me, I will be able to show you the highlights through the eyes of an Archaeologist (myself). I will give you information and details that you can not find in the books! A walk in Pompeii is a very intense experience: it will be like wandering through an ancient living city! During the experience, I will explain the history of the city and how the Romans lived, showing you the most important public buildings and private homes. Don't miss the chance to visit the most famous archaeological site, you will feel like you are wandering around a living ancient city!
I am a professional archaeologist and an official tour guide. I studied Archaeology at university, but this has ever been my passion since my childhood. I have been focusing my career on Pompeii and Herculaneum from 2010, and I think those places are pure magic! I'm the founder of Askos Tours, a company with the goal to arrange the best archaeological tours in Italy. I lead a team of wonderful archaeologists and guides, and we do together the experiences that I designed over the years. My colleagues are called Giancarlo, Felicia, Paolo, Sergio, Anna, Chiara, Antonio, Michele, Paola, Daniela, Monica & Antonella, and they all have my same qualifications and the same passion for archaeology. I'm proud to say that our Airbnb experience is one of the most booked and best reviewed in the country. Hope you'll like it too!
