After lunch in a local restaurant in Pompeii you will enjoy an awesome 2 hour archeological walking tour of the excavations of Pompeii. Buried under a layer of ashes and lapilli by a sudden eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D., after 1700 years archaeologists brought to light Pompeii, a town whose daily life of the Imperial Age has been crystallized, as under a spell, in its gestures, secrets, in the panic felt by its inhabitants during the last moments.
