A bustling port city during the peak of the Roman Empire. Walk on the very same cobble stone streets as we take you to admire the almost perfectly intact buildings as they near 1900 years of age! Entire mosaics, afrescos, public baths, the theatre, a 2nd floor apartment known as insulae. Our visit also includes a stop at the museum where the original sculptures were found during various excavations.
Visit the amphitheatre Flavian. Understand the true nature of gladiator fights and the hype the games generated. Admire the feats of engineering that made trap doors open and other surprises appear in the middle of the arena. Afterwards walk through the beating heart of ancient Rome, the Forum, where political and commercial strife decided the fate of Rome for many centuries.
