His wealth of knowledge, having worked as an archeologist at Pompeii, was evident from the very beginning. His passion for the site, it's continual restoration and bringing history to life was fantastic. He shared his wealth of knowledge of Roman life and the events surrounding the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. After a short lunch break we travelled to Herculaneum where we enjoyed a further detailed tour with a range of highlights from beautiful atriums in Roman Villas to exquisite mosaics. This tour is a must if you want to truly understand the historical site and get the most out of your trip.
