What you'll do

This online tour is an appetizer of Pompeii: we will "escape" from our homes and move back into Roman times!

I'll tell you the history of the city, from the beginning to the eruption, and then to the discovery.

You'll get an introduction to the daily life of 2000 years ago, discovering the private and public buildings that characterize the ancient city.

During our virtual trip, we will visit some of the main attractions as the Amphitheater (Roman gladiator stadium), the Thermopolium (Roman snack bar) and the Forum (main square).

I'll also share the techniques that archaeologists use to create the plaster casts of the victims of the eruption of the Vesuvius.

Looking at maps, videos and photos, you will have a taste of the Roman times that'll give you an idea for a future offline visit.

Of course, I'll be happy to answer all of your questions, too!

*This experience is great virtual holiday trip for private groups, for team-building and for students and schools*

**If you are interested in other days, timing and languages don't hesitate to contact me and I will try to arrange that for you!**

***Yana, Giada, Maurizio and Luca are my co-hosts***

Roberto was a fantastic virtual tour guide. He was so knowledgable and friendly. The tour itself was very informative and interesting, we would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a taste of what Pompeii has to offer.

Roberto was incredible with the Pompeii tour especially with showing us the city virtually via Google Earth and slides of the artifacts and photos. I would highly recommend Roberto for an intimate team building/social activity. He was so engaging and made the virtual tour a lot of fun and educational.

I had a very good time during this. The host was interacting with us and asking questions or having answers throughout the session.

We did this event for work to meet new team members. It was perfect for that but would also be perfect for families or friends. Even if you plan to visit Pompeii in person in the future, this is a wonderful way to get some background. Really a fun event.

This was a really fun and enjoyable experience. You will get to see many examples of preserved pieces from that time period, and learn about interesting details as to the daily life of the people living there. There were plenty of opportunities to ask questions, though most of mine were answered in the actual presentation itself.

Roberto clearly knows Pompeii and what it was like to live there two millennia ago. Thanks to the magic of Street View it was the next best thing to being on the streets of ancient Pompeii. If only I could get a bite of those carbonized figs...
