Description

I will share what I learned during my studies about Pompeii, and together we will visit, through images and 3D effects, corners of the city far from the usual touristic paths. I will tell you all about the dramatic eruption of the Mount Vesuvius that buried many, and of course, we will virtually see the people of Pompeii, recreated with plaster casts. We will virtually stroll down the streets, shops, bath houses and theatres of the port city!

Meet your Host
Raffaele Romano

Ciao! My name is Raffaele and I am an authorized tour guide. I have a first degree in Archaeology and History of Art. Both travels and the experience of living abroad have made me understand how lucky I am to live in Naples! It’s a city with a unique charm, where you can breathe history and art in every corner. I would like to introduce you to my colleagues; Riccardo, a Neapolitan Guide, and an Archaeologist; and Teresa, a Ph.D. Doctor in Archaeology and an authorized tour guide (since 2015).
