Uncover the ruins of an ancient Roman city and learn about Mount Vesuvius' devastating volcanic eruption while on a four-hour tour that uses a paved path accessible to wheelchairs and guests with mobility issues. Your English-speaking guide will lead you along a wheelchair-accessible route around an archaeological site that was once buried under 20 feet of volcanic ash. Relive the days before Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, when the city of Pompeii thrived along the Gulf of Naples. Walk through the city forum, where residents shopped in daily markets, and grand temples where they assembled for worship. Admire the frescoes that remain on the walls of mansions that housed the city's wealthy set and Roman-style baths where they gathered for relaxation. Then hear the harrowing story of the fateful day when Mount Vesuvius, a somma-stratovolcano rising 3,700 feet above sea level, spewed an umbrella of molten ash and sulfuric gas across the cityscape — you'll even view the bones of animals and humans that were preserved in time until they were excavated years later among other remnants of a once-thriving Roman settlement.
