A live virtual tour that involves a tourist guide interacting with visitors over a Zoom call, providing a narrative as in a regular tour.
A journey into the past with the eyes of future, whilst we wait patiently to rediscover the joy and curiosity of our students and travellers from all over the world.
Through reconstructions, infographics and video, visitors will experience the excitement of an amazing journey back in time until just before the Plinian eruption of 79 AD destroyed the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. This tour will allow our digital explorers to recreate these ancient cities in detail and to dive deep into the culture, the organization and the places where the activities of an ancient Herculaneum or Pompeian citizen took place over the course of a day.
Connected from a device and just like on regular tour, visitors will have the opportunity to follow an itinerary and to interact with a tour guide in real time.
Our tour will highlight four sections.
The first part will take place among the public places of these cities. Places present in every ancient Roman city: the Herculaneum Theatre (where in addition to dramas and comedies, political debates and religious rituals where held); the Central Baths (a very popular social place); Pompeii’s Forum, the city’s vital center, and the “Schola Armaturarum” (a pompeian military training place for young men, collapsed in 2010).
