    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Pompeii - Archaeological Area., Porta Marina Superiore (Via Villa dei Misteri) Piazza Immacolata, Piazza Porta Marina inf., 80045 Pompeii Italy

    Pompeii is a vast archaeological site in southern Italy’s Campania region, near the coast of the Bay of Naples. Once a thriving and sophisticated Roman city, Pompeii was buried under meters of ash and pumice after the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. The preserved site features excavated ruins of streets and houses that visitors can freely explore.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Pass By: Basilica, Vicolo Delle Terme, 2 Archaeological Area of Pompei, Pompeii Italy

    The Basilica, with its extension of 1,500 square meters, was the most sumptuous building of the Forum, and its space was used to carry out business and for the administration of justice.

    Pass By: Forum, Via Villa dei Misteri, 80045 Pompeii Italy

    The Civil Forum is the core of daily life of the city and is the focal point of all the main public buildings for city administration and justice, business management, and trade activities such as markets, as well as the main places of citizen worship.

    Pass By: Temple of Jupiter, Via Del Tempio Di Giove, 18, Pompeii Italy

    The Temple of Jupiter dominates the north side of the Forum, with Mount Vesuvius scenically rising behind. When the colony was founded (80 BC), the temple underwent a radical renovation and became a real Capitolium with the three cult statues of Jupiter, Juno and Minerva, which looked like those of the Capitolium in Rome, placed on a high base so as to make them visible to whoever passed in the Forum square.

    Pass By: Macellum, Via Villa Dei Misteri Regio VII, Building 12, 80045 Pompeii Italy

    The Macellum consists of a tuff quadriporticus with a hall for worship in an elevated position on the eastern side, in line with the entrance. The copies of two marble statues, a female and a male armed, are found on the niches of the side wall, together with the fragment of a larger statue, probably pertaining to an emperor, Titus or Vespasian, indicating how this area was intended for the imperial cult. To its left is a room for meetings of a sacred board and to the right a large room with a masonry counter perhaps for fish to be sold.

    Pass By: Via Villa Dei Misteri, 2 Approximately Two Blocks East of The Forum at The Intersection of Vico del Lupanare and Vico del Balcone Pensile, 80045 Pompeii Italy

    The prostitutes in the brothel were mostly Greek and Oriental slaves who were paid between two and eight Asses (a glass of wine cost one As) for their services.

    The building has two floors. The homes of the owner and the slaves are at the top and there are five rooms at the bottom, all fitted with a built-in bed, on both sides of the corridor that connects the two entrances of the ground floor. The rooms were closed by a curtain. A latrine is seen at the end of the corridor, under the staircase.

    Our guide Salvatore (Sasa) was wonderful. He was a 3rd generation guide as well as being from the area. He shared stories and was able to remove us from crowded areas to share great spots and was humorous too. Highly recommend this one.

    Not quite a "small" group tour, but well worth the experience. Our tour guide, Roberta, was wonderful.

    Our half day tour was not enough time to see all there was to see at Pompeii. The site is large and very, very busy so it was difficult to see some of the inner rooms. However, the frescos and mosaics are stunning and I am glad I was able to see what I did. Imagine seeing
