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 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***

I've lost count on how many times I've booked Roberto for our corporate groups. He's has so much knowledge and passion for Pompeii. I highly recommend him.

Roberto's experience is wonderful! He is brilliant and knowledgeable. The opportunity to walk through this historic city with a PhD who can answer literally any question you can come up with is a blast. I highly recommend!

This has been the best Airbnb experience we’ve done so far! He sets it up so that you feel like you are getting a tour and still leave wanting to plan your trip to Italy to see Pompei in real life. It’s interactive, compelling, Roberto has answers to all of your questions and is such a wealth of knowledge! Would recommend highly!

We had a company team event experience with Roberto the archaeologist. He was passionate about his topic, sharing so many thing about Pompeii we never knew about. Highly recommend this for singles or groups or families. You'll love it!

Roberto was an amazing guide! He explained all the history of Pompeii so well. We were surprised to learn that the ash from Vesuvius was carried all the way to South Africa in 79AD! The Google street view was such a good idea, it felt almost as if we were actually there! Roberto was very interesting to listen to and he encouraged questions. As an archeologist, he was well versed on everything about the daily life of the Romans in 79AD. We especially enjoyed hearing about the gladiators, who they were, why they fought, and what their lives were like. This was a very family friendly experience. My 13 year old granddaughter thinks even her 10 year old brother would have enjoyed it. Thank you, Roberto for a wonderful first AirBnB online experience! Hope to make it to Pompeii for real someday soon!

Roberto is a wonderful storyteller and a great host. We enjoyed every minute of our virtual tour and would recommend him to anyone who wants to know more about Pompeii. Look forward to meeting a historian with amazing passion for his work.
