Join the acclaimed classicist and broadcaster on our exclusive five-day tour in September to explore some of the greatest sites of the ancient world
No places on Earth provide a deeper insight into Roman life than
Pompeii and Herculaneum. Both thriving towns before they were
engulfed by the cataclysmic eruption of Vesuvius in AD79, they
present a haunting, vividly detailed picture of life as it was
truly lived in Roman times.
On this exclusive five-day tour, you will stay in the tranquil
Hotel Scapolatiello, known for its beautiful hillside views, and
will be guided through this long-vanished world by the popular
broadcaster and classicist Michael Scott, who, alongside other
experts, will reveal the human stories buried within the ash.
In an exclusive article with Woman & Home, Michael revealed
what he's most looking forward to seeing on this
As well as visiting the site of Pompeii itself, you will have
the chance to tour the galleries of the wonderful Naples Museum,
walk the streets of Herculaneum and explore the opulent villas and
saltwater baths of the seaside resort of Baiae to see for yourself
how Rome's senators, gladiators, slaves and citizens lived 2,000
"This is a tour that takes in some of the most jaw-dropping
ancient sites," says Michael, "where you truly feel the Ancient
Roman world brought back to life, nestled among some of Europe's
most spectacular scenery and all accompanied by some of the world's
finest food, wine and weather. What's not to love?"
