We visited Pompeii guided by Giulia from Naples City Tours on an excursion arranged by Norwegian Cruise Lines. She was a well prepared and knowledgeable guide, bringing parts of Pompeii to life. This city buried by the eruption of mount Vesuvius in AD 79 is a fascinating look at life in the Roman empire, including shops (a bakery and a restaurant), the baths, an upper class home with amazing frescoes still there, fountains, some shrines, and the red light district. Giulia handled this with sensitivity for the families with children (and anyone else) who preferred to skip the red light district, giving them clear directions where to meet up with the rest of the tour. For those interested, the menu of options was fascinating and quite comprehensible, almost 2000 years later. Walking is a bit challenging due to the very uneven cobblestone roads and sidewalks.
