Day 2 Pompeii

​Few places have captured the imagination quite like Pompeii and today we will discover its sights. Our explorations begin with a walking tour of the modern city, visiting the Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii, before attention turns to the remarkable archaeological site. Pompeii's sheer scale is immense and on our guided tour you will be able to imagine what life was like before Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, smothering the town and its inhabitants in hot ash. As we wander through the streets, we'll see villas decorated with frescos and brightly coloured mosaics, the remarkable Roman baths and spectacular amphitheatre. There are many pizzerias and restaurants located within walking distance of our hotel and this evening has been left free for you to dine out with your travelling companions, if you wish.​
