Pompeii and Herculaneum: Two cities one destiny

Some verses say:” O foruna velut luna” – “Oh fortune, you change like moon”. Yes, faith is inscrutable and can change in a while.

It happened one day of two thousand years ago when the moon changed in the sky over Pompeii and Herculaneum.

These two prosperous Roman cities set in a marvelous environment among sea, rivers and fertile fields were deleted from the face of earth in a couple of days.

Vesuvius with its enormous destroying power took everything: houses, streets, shops, monuments, thousands lives and all what they represented.

This tragedy was terrible, maybe the worst one of the ancient times. These cities were forgotten from history because the Vesuvius eruption buried them.

That’s why their ruins exist today. Undoubtedly is extremely fascinating to visit them for many reasons. You have an incredible occasion to live an unforgettable experience in the ancient Roman dimension.

You can see where the Romans ate, slept, loved, enjoyed, prayed and died.

You can do that in two similar but different cities not only for their characteristics but even for their different conservation state.

Three wonderful experiences in one, Pompeii, Herculaneum and Dario

7 November 2023

We came to Naples on the NCL Viva and didn’t like any of their offerings. We looked at may providers and struggled to find exactly the trip we wanted, a trip to both Pompeii and Herculaneum with a pick up and drop off at the cruise terminal. Until we found Dario.

Dario tailored out trip to fit perfectly around our timescales and needs, we couldn’t have asked for more.

We were promptly met at the terminal by Dario and our driver, taken right to the gates at Pompeii and Herculaneum and returned to our ship exactly as planned, even finding time to fit in a breakfast coffee and a delightful lunch.

Pompeii and Herculaneum were as amazing as we’d hoped but Dario was the bonus on top. Dario’s as a guide is factual, entertaining and thoughtfully ensured all in our party felt personally involved. Our driver, who’s name eludes me, sorry!, was also lovely and thoughtful provided some umbrellas for the slightly inclement weather.

I know booking an independent trip many miles from home can feel daunting but you’re in safe hands with Dario, Grazie mille

Nos acompaño Darío, fue muy amable todo el recorrido. Se nota que está muy enterado de la historia de la ciudad de Pompeya, fue paciente y con un trato muy afable hacia nosotros. Un 10 para el guía Darío.

Pompeii and Herculaneum with Dario

29 July 2023

We had a wonderful day with Dario as our guide, learning so much about Pompeii and Herculaneum. Dario’s knowledge and passion are shared with those lucky enough to have him as their guide. He transported our imaginations back to the time of the two cities, and made our visit so very special. Thank you Dario,
