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

24 August 79 AD started like any other day... a sudden disaster struck a lively city located near one of the major trading ports of the Roman Empire. As the largest volcano on the Italian peninsula erupted, the entire city was wiped out overnight buried under volcanic ash. The city's name was Pompeii.

By the end of 25 august, the landscape around Mount Vesuvius had been changed forever and Pompeii had been completely buried. Within a few years no one could remember where the city had once stood.

When its excavation began almost 1700 years later what came to light astonished the world. Under the volcanic ash, the city had been beautifully preserved. A time capsule that revealed centuries later what town life had been like at the time of the Roman Empire. Not only the city buildings were perfectly preserved, volcanic ash also sealed their bodies and their thoughts often scratched into the plaster walls before the sudden tragedy. Looking at the numerous and sometimes hidden details of Pompeii, you will know about its inhabitants, their lives and their wishes that never came true...

My walking tours is a travel in the past through which you'll have a vivid picture of roman daily life told with passion and archaeological accuracy. The tour includes the major highlights or if you prefer I can prepare a different tour according to your interests. Whatever you choose, the tour will be an amazing experience for all your family.

We visited Pompei with our two children aged 8 and 10. One of the reasons we were attracted to Ada’s tour was the reviews left by other families and the tour certainly lived up to expectations. Ada was really helpful in arranging the tour, changing the time to suit us better,

We spent the morning touring the Amalfi coast with a driver Ada had arranged, and then toured Pompeii with Ada in the afternoon. She really does bring the ruins to life and points out what we can learn about Ancient Rome from seemingly minor details. She was very easy to work
