For centuries Pompeii lay sleeping beneath its pall of ash, a hidden ancient world perfectly preserved far from prying eyes. When these fabulous remains were finally unearthed and brought to the light of day once more in the 1700s, the entire world was soon entranced by the unprecedented window into the daily life of antiquity offered up by this subterranean city frozen in time. But even after nearly 3 centuries, the process of discovery is still far from complete - every year new treasures are opened to the public that enrich our knowledge of this extraordinary place. During this second part of our virtual Pompeii tour, we’ll be exploring the spaces that have been been opened to visitors in recent years. So join Andrea as we return to Pompeii to discover a fascinating and evocative landscape of ancient houses, baths, temples, warehouses and so much more. Book your place now, and continue the fascinating journey we began on in the first part of our virtual tour of Pompeii!
Hi I’m Andrea! A native of Naples, I’ve lived in the Campania region of Italy all my life, and I have a deep love for its art, archeology, music, architecture, cuisine, natural beauty and - of course - its people. I have shared this world with many, many visitors over the years,showcasing the vast range of this wonderful place. When I was 14 years old I started working as an actor in theatres, and this plays a central role in how I communicate on my tours today - I always try to put something theatrical into everything I do :-)
The world of travel might be on hold right now, but just because we're all staying at home to help the world overcome a common enemy doesn't mean we have to put our wanderlust on the back burner. Frustrated with not being able to get our travel fix, we decided to transform our award-winning tours into immersive virtual experiences, meaning you can still explore Italy’s spectacular archaeological sites and jaw-dropping museums from the comfort of your own home.

Pompeii Virtual Tour Part II: New Discoveries in the Ancient City
We were so glad to see that Through Eternity was offering these virtual tours during the pandemic. What a great way to be able to see some of these amazing places, led by their knowledgeable guides during a time when we can't travel. Our guide Andrea, was very engaging and gave us a great tour of Pompeii's newer discoveries. It was awesome being able to ask questions and learn from his expertise. He is a personable and interesting guide. Thank you Through Eternity for allowing us this opportunity to "travel"!
Pompeii: The more the better!
The magic of Pompeii is constantly being discovered, and Andrea is wonderful at unfolding those discoveries. I am always fascinated at how similar ancient peoples' lives were like ours, priorities were the same, the class system was the same, and what people did in a typical day was the same. Pompeii is a perfect demonstration of a suburban town then and now, and Andrea's understanding of it makes him a first class guide.
