    -

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Basilica, Archaeological Area of Pompei, Pompeii Italy

    The Basilica, with its extension of 1,500 square metres, was the most sumptuous building of the Forum, and its space was used to carry out business and for the administration of justice. It is accessed from the Forum through five entrances separated by tuff pillars; inside it is divided into three naves with two rows of brick columns with Ionic capitals.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Forum, Pompeii Italy

    The Civil Forum is the core of daily life of the city and is the focal point of all the main public buildings for city administration and justice, business management, and trade activities such as markets, as well as the main places of citizen worship.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Temple of Apollo, Pompeii Italy

    The Sanctuary of Apollo is one of the oldest places of worship in Pompeii, built in a strategic point, along the path that goes up to Marina Gate, which led to the public heart of the city.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Temple of Jupiter, Pompeii Italy

    The Temple of Jupiter dominates the north side of the Forum, with Mount Vesuvius scenically rising behind. When the colony was founded (80 BC), the temple underwent a radical renovation and became a real Capitolium with the three cult statues of Jupiter, Juno and Minerva, which looked like those of the Capitolium in Rome, placed on a high base so as to make them visible to whoever passed in the Forum square.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Macellum, Via Villa Dei Misteri Regio VII, Building 12, 80045 Pompeii Italy

    The Macellum consists of a tuff quadriporticus with a hall for worship in an elevated position on the eastern side, in line with the entrance. The copies of two marble statues, a female and a male armed, are found on the niches of the side wall, together with the fragment of a larger statue, probably pertaining to an emperor, Titus or Vespasian, indicating how this area was intended for the imperial cult. To its left is a room for meetings of a sacred board and to the right a large room with a masonry counter perhaps for fish to be sold.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Stabian Baths (Terme Stabiane), Pompeii Italy

    The Forum Baths are located behind the Temple
of Jupiter and date back to the
years immediately after the founding of the colony of veterans by General Silla (80 BC). Women's and men's quarters had separate entrances. The men's section presents an apodyterium (dressing room), used also as a tepidarium (for medium temperature baths), frigidarium (for cold baths) and calidarium (for hot baths). Like many buildings in Pompeii, the baths were heavily damaged during the earthquake of 62 AD.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: House of the Vettii, Vicolo dei Vetti, Pompeii Italy

    The house, one of the richest and most famous in Pompeii, is under the protection of Priapus, the god of prosperity, painted to the right of the door, symbolizing the economic prosperity of the owners, the brothers Aulus Vettius Restitutus and Aulus Vettius Conviva liberti, who became rich through trade.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Approximately Two Blocks East of The Forum at The Intersection of Vico del Lupanare and Vico del Balcone Pensile, 80045 Pompeii Italy

    The prostitutes in the brothel were mostly Greek and Oriental slaves who were paid between two and eight Asses (a glass of wine cost one Ass) for their services.

    Our guide was an archaeology professor who has spent her entire career at Pompeii. She was very knowledgeable and a good presenter. Having said that, we saw very little of Pompeii. We stood around waiting and then there was the walk into Pompeii. Apparently this counted

    Pompeii was a great experience in itself and the tour gave a good overview in around 2 hours. As we walked through the excavation, we could not understand the guide properly due to the fact that the walkie talkie technology used was not good enough. Overall the guide could have
