Catch the train from Rome to Naples to enjoy a guided tour of Pompeii and escape the hustle and bustle of the Italian capital for the day. You will meet your guide upon arrival at the Porta Marina Superiore, the main entrance gate to the ruins. Then, explore the western part of the ancient city in detail to see where the most important public buildings, homes, and shops were located. Relive the last moments in the lives of the people of Pompeii as your guide brings the ruins to life. Highlights of your tour include the Basilica and Forum, the Stabian Baths, where archaeologists discovered erotic wall paintings, and the Lupanar (brothel). See an old bakery, and the impressive House of the Faun, one of the most aristocratic of Pompeii’s private residences. Go to the House of the Tragic Poet, famous for its mosaics and frescoes, and see plaster casts of Pompeii people and their pets caught in the poses in which they died. Admire the remains of the Temples of Apollo and Venus, and the impressive amphitheaters. Trains from Rome are comfortable and high-speed, reaching Naples in 70 minutes. From Naples, the Circumvesuviana local train takes 30 minutes, stopping at Pompei Villa dei Misteri, just 100 meters from the Porta Marina Superiore.
