Summary

An unbeatable introduction to ordinary Roman life

The sites of the Bay of Naples confront the modern visitor with a vivid, haunting immediacy like nothing else in the ancient world. This tour offers you the most important highlights of the Vesuvian towns just when these have opened a number of new houses and have undertaken exciting new excavations. In the company of guide lecturers who have particular expertise in the area, you will explore breath-taking remains which offer you an unparalleled introduction into the lives of ordinary people in the Roman period – including shops so intact that the wooden shelves have been preserved, baths, where you can see remnants of the ancient glass and a plethora of houses and bars where every day items have survived.

Tour highlights:

  • Discover the ancient town of Herculaneum
  • Spend a full day in Pompeii and wander the ancient ruins
  • Explore the villa at Oplontis, owned by the family of Nero's wife
  • Visit Naples Archaeological Museum, home to extraordinary finds from the local area
