The walking tour of Pompeii is a fascinating journey back in time to the prosperous days of the Roman civilization. The once energetic city was lost to history due to the cataclysmic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Now a UNESCO-listed site, it offers an excellent window into the living conditions in the Roman era through its excavated finds. The guide will first lead you to the Civil Forum, also called the main square and its most imposing building known as the Basilica. The impressive ruins of the Basilica are spread over 1500 sq. meters and were the site of court hearings, and public functions, among other things. On the northern side of the Civil Forum, you will find remains of the Temple of Jupiter. Next, pay a visit to the famous Forum Baths and get a sense of what communal baths looked like in Roman times. Additionally, Pompeii also boasts a luxurious villa called House of the Menander, which was home to the Roman elites.

With all the information from your tour guide, piece together the picture of a thriving city with cobbled streets, crowded marketplaces, remarkable frescoes, street fountains, and magnificent statues. All of which were shrouded under 4 to 6 meters of volcanic ash for thousands of years. Only to emerge from the ashes in the 18th century and reveal how the city of Pompeii came to a screeching halt on that fateful day in 79 AD.
