- Private car to and from Pompeii
At the end of our time together, the whole group will walk away with a richer understanding of everyday life in the Roman Empire, as well as the history of the city of Pompeii and its untimely fate. Together we will peel back layer after layer of the past and peer into those last moments before this once prosperous town was lost to antiquity.
Please Note: Due to transportation schedule changes during the holiday season, this tour time may need to be altered for the allotted itinerary. The team will communicate this to you promptly if necessary - Thank you for your flexibility!
