Pompeii day tours
Tour of Pompeii with 2 Coste Private Tours 2 Coste Private Tours organizes a beautiful itinerary to discover Pompeii, one of the best known and appreciated archaeological sites in the world. Located in the vicinity of the modern city, right at the foot of the Civita Hill, the excavations of Pompeii are today among the most important testimonies of Roman civilization, as well as the best preserved Roman city of that era. The route proposed by 2 Coste Private Tours allows you to fully immerse yourself in the evocative atmosphere of this place which, buried by the explosion of the Vesuvius volcano in 79 AD, managed to keep itself perfectly intact by giving us a real snapshot of life at that time
The guided tour of the ancient Pompeii, today not still fully discovered, starts from the beautiful area of the ancient Forums, the beating heart of the City, from which you can admire the remains of the Temples of Apollo and Jupiter as well as the remains of the ancient Baths of the Forum. Hence the tourist route, that we highly recommend the presence of an expert guide, continues towards the Stabian Baths, the oldest in the entire archaeological area, and then stops at some private homes such as the House of the Faun, the House of the Golden Cupids , the Casa dei Centenari and the magnificent Amphitheater.
Other obligatory stops on a guided tour in Pompeii are the Macellum, or the ancient market, the Via del'Abbondanza, in antiquity considered as the main artery of the entire town, and the brothel, a beautiful building where you can admire beautiful graffiti and paintings of the time.
The tour of Pompeii excavations by 2 Coste Private Tours then includes a stop at Villa of the Mistery a Roman villa located in the northern part of the excavations just outside the walls, where a series of extraordinary frescoes are preserved, probably dating back to the first century BC, which they represent mysterious rituals to which it has not yet been possible to give a certain meaning.
The tour of Pompeii with 2 Coste Private Tours guide also includes a stop at a local restaurant where tourists will be given the opportunity to taste the typical dishes of the Neapolitan cuisine accompanied by a glass of the best local wines.
Finally, we remind you that by choosing the 2 Coste Private Tours "Day Tour of Pompeii and Naples" it will be possible to visit in just one day not only the Pompeii archaeological area but also the historic center and the main attractions of Naples, with stops at its most famous places and monuments such as Piazza del Gesù, Spaccanapoli, Via Dei Tribunali, Naples Underground, Piazza

Guided tours of Pompeii: information on the buried city Visiting the excavations of Pompeii, today the third most visited state museum in Italy, means having a unique experience and this not only for the extraordinary beauty of its archaeological finds but also and above all for the particular atmosphere that you breathe in this place. The peculiarity of Pompeii, compared to other archaeological sites, lies in the fact that houses, buildings, streets, objects and even people, have come, after almost two thousand years, to our days perfectly preserved by the volcanic materials that came out from Mt. Vesuvius whose explosion sanctioned not only the end of this city but also bur also the Town of Herculaneum, Stabiae and Oplontis
The excavations that allowed to bring Pompeii back to light, began in 1748 commissioned by Charles III of Bourbon and since then there have been numerous discoveries and recovery and protection measures implemented in the area. In 1997, just to preserve the integrity of the site, the archaeological area of Pompeii, which extends for about 66 hectares of which 45 brought to light, became part of the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Thanks to its favorable geographical position, a few kilometers away from Naples, Salerno, the Amalfi Coast and the Sorrento Coast, Pompeii is easily accessible both by private means and by public transport. Finally, remember that the archaeological area can be visited every day except January 1st
