This tour consists of a pleasant walk around the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, destroyed and covered in ashes by the VESUVIUS in 79 AD. During the famous eruption, Pompeii and its inhabitants were buried by tons of pumice and volcanic ashes, which preserved many things and materials in amazing conditions. The tour starts here, and after it you'll have time to grab some lunch or to stroll on the souvenirs' shops outside the ruins. Then I'll provide you with the Circumvesuviana train tickets and we will catch it in order to get to Herculaneum (20 mins trip circa) and start our walk in the ruins. Herculaneum is much smaller, but even better preserved than Pompeii. While Pompeii had been covered in four meters of ashes, an avalanche of 20-meters-thick mud had buried Herculaneum. Two-floor buildings, carbonized wooden objects, intact paintings and mosaics are still observable there. The site gives a vivid impression of the opulent lifestyle enjoyed by the wealthier citizens of the Roman Empire! Our walk ends in Herculaneum. The tour is in ENGLISH, only for a SMALL GROUP (15 people maximum).
Hello everyone! I'm Sergio. I was born and raised in POMPEII, under the shade of Mount VESUVIUS. I graduated in ARCHAEOLOGY and then in HISTORY! I am a professional licensed tourist guide and a big, passionate fan of archaeology and of the places I happen to live in: they are pure magic. Since I was a child, I've always had a great delight in reading history books. I also love VISUAL ARTS and I enjoy very much drawing ancient monuments. I am thrilled to travel; I love photography and I like to create photo art. Music is an essential part of my life: in fact, I play the keyboard in a rock band ;) It's a pleasure for me to offer you my skills, shall you want to explore Pompeii and/or Herculaneum. I really can't wait to meet you!
I'll meet you at Porta Marina Superiore holding a sign with "Askos Tours Explore Pompeii & Herculaneum" on top. We'll visit the west area of Pompei for about 2 hours; we'll then move to Herculaneum using the local train: here we'll spend two more hours. A walk in these famous ruins is a very intense experience: you'll have the feeling of wandering in towns that are still alive! All of the major highlights of the 2 sites wilI be covered!
