Excavations of Pompeii

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $149 USD / Adult
Enter one of the most remarkable archaeological sites ever unearthed, the lost city of Pompeii. Once a thriving Roman port and a hub of commerce and politics, all was lost on a fateful day in 79 AD when Mount Vesuvius exploded in a torrent of ash and cinder. For 1,700 years Pompeii lay undiscovered beneath 30 feet of volcanic debris. Today, it’s widely considered the world’s most fascinating archaeological discovery. Stroll through the narrow streets that once bustled with activity. Observe the remains of the grand Temple of Apollo and view artifacts wonderfully preserved due to the lack of air beneath the volcanic ash. Perhaps the most moving images of Pompeii are plaster casts made during the excavations — voids left in the ash by citizens huddling in their final moments. It’s an eerie glimpse of lives lost millennia ago on the last day of a great city.
  • Begin with a scenic drive that offers up panoramic vistas of the peninsula and its soaring Dolomitic Cliffs.
  • Enter the world’s most famous archaeological site and witness the haunting figures of ancient citizens frozen in their final moments.
  • Explore the remarkable temples and mansions of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
