Travel Specialist

I'm here to tailor-make your perfect Amalfi Coast holiday. Give me a call and I'll use my expertise to create your personalised experience.

Join your guide, an expert in archaeology, for a private tour of the UNESCO World Heritage designated Archaeological Area of Pompeii, a city frozen in time, preserved in a thick layer of ash, pumice and lapilli. The terrible eruption of Vesuvius that buried Pompeii on August 24, 79 A.D. has left to posterity the opportunity to enjoy and visit the city as it appeared to the ancient inhabitants just before the catastrophe. The excavations are one of the most significant proofs of the Roman civilization and, like an open book, provides outstanding information on the art, customs, trades, and everyday life of the past. The city has re-emerged from the darkness of centuries precisely as it would have been when it was unexpectedly buried in the thick layer of ash and lava which poured down.
