What you'll do

Go back in time to EXPLORE one of the most fascinating archaeological sites in world! Herculaneum was a rich city of merchants and nobility, whose life ended dramatically fast and abrupt. The city was destroyed in just few minutes by the Mount Vesuvius' eruption in 79 A.D. Pompeii, Oplontis and Stabiae were destroyed with it. Me and my team (composed of valid guides and passionate archaeologists) will give you insights, details and curiosities you cannot find on books: on Roman society, history and everyday life!

Emiliano

Hello everyone! My name is Emiliano: I am a professional archaeologist and an official tour guide. I studied ARCHAEOLOGY at University, but this has always been my PASSION since I was a child. I have been focusing on Pompeii and Herculaneum since 2010, because I think those places are pure magic. I’m also the founder of ASKOS TOURS, a company with the goal to arrange the best archaeological tours in Italy. I lead a team of wonderful archaeologists and guides, and we, together, do the experiences I designed over the years. My colleagues all have my same qualifications and the same passion for archaeology. I’m proud to say that our Airbnb experience is one of the MOST BOOKED and BEST REVIEWED in the country. I hope you’ll like it too!
