After half an hour’s drive, you will explore the archeological site of Pompeii with your private tour guide. In 79 AD, the Vesuvius destroyed the entire town of Pompeii. Or so everyone thought… Everything remained preserved because of the speed with which the city got flooded by the lava and the tons of ash that covered the city. During the nineteenth and twentieth century, archeologists dug up the hidden city and found an entire civilization. The site of Pompeii is, therefore, a popular place to visit in Italy. Your private guide will tell tales about the society who used to live there and how the civilization came to its end.
Accessibility note: The route is 3 km long and is accessible for wheelchair users. Along the route, some ramps are installed that give access to the most important buildings on the site. Click here to read more about the accessibility of Pompeii in our blog post!
