Discover Pompeii and Herculaneum on a full-day tour from Rome

From your hotel in central Rome, you will have the opportunity to take a full-day guided tour to Pompeii and Herculaneum - Italy's iconic Lost Cities. These historic cities are located close to the imposing volcano, Mount Vesusius, which in 79 AD erupted with violent strength. Pompeii and Herculaneum were destroyed and hidden by a veil of ash, which served to preserve everything in the cities from their houses to the fated inhabitants. However, centuries later, the ruins of these cities were discovered and it is now possible to visit these eerie locations to see how people lived thousands of years ago.
