A GUIDED TOUR OF NAPLES AND THE RUINS OF POMPEII - COACH EXCURSION FROM ROME

Recent comment:

Vatican and St Peters private tour, Monday 17th March 2014

I would like to give you feedback on the above which our party of 8 enjoyed immensely.

Everything was perfect, meeting, entry (lovely to pass those queues), technology, venue (of course), etc.

But the best thing about the whole morning was your guide Deborah. She is charming, friendly, erudite, and a real credit to you. We listened to her intently throughout, she held our attention, surprised us, interacted with us, answered all our questions, and made the morning very special. We would have missed so much without her. We all think we would like to meet her again and when we come back to Rome we would hope to do so.

Many thanks

The Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and together with the towering volcano of Vesuvius are one of the most popular destinations in Italy. They offer an unparalleled view of day-to-day life in ancient Rome, as well as a sobering insight into the power of nature.

Both cities were buried by Vesuvius in an eruption in 79 AD and were gradually lost in time - with rediscovery and excavations only really starting in the mid-eighteenth century. Protected by volcanic ash, and hidden from looters and treasure seekers, these are some of the worlds' most fascinating archaeological sites.
