Life along the Gulf of Naples where the ancient city of Pompeii resides was once quite bustling. As the flaming sun rose over Mount Vesuvius each day, beams of thick sunlight graced the terracotta-tiled rooftops of organized houses, stately public buildings, retail quarters, and lush villas. Sounds emanated from merchant warehouses, a vibrant network of brothels, daily markets, and the frequent snap of leather sandals hitting the cobbled streets.

On this live online tour, join our expert archaeologist guide as they weave their passion and profession together, divulging the secrets they have come to learn in their studies and share often overlooked articles of interest about Pompeii before the eruption of Vesuvius, and after.

For as much as we know about the Ancient City of Pompeii, there is still so much unanswered. Buried in mystery for almost two millennia, Pompeii has slowly revealed answers to many of our ancient queries, but has left both visitors and academics alike more and more curious as the years pass.

Our expert guide will help to answer these questions - not only will you hear of the pyroclastic ruin of a thriving city, your guide will share what life was like for the twelve to fifteen thousand people that once resided here - people that today may still be buried beneath the ashes.

On this online tour experience, travel into the former shadows, now illuminated by expert research, a bevy of ancient artifacts excavated from the destruction in 79 AD. This is an ancient snapshot of what life was like during the 1st century - life in an ancient city devoured in an instant.
