Augmented reality is a fully immersive, CGI-powered reactive interpretation of an environment. It enhances the real world with digital information and expands it. Can you imagine having this technology at your disposal in the ruined cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum?

 Ancient Rome was "realized" by several "upcoming" VR services some years ago. The providers replaced real environments with simulations and the results were poor. Colosseum VR in particular was comical.

 Times have changed. In Pompeii and Herculaneum, our AR devices will transport you back to the days and weeks before Mount Vesuvius erupted.

 While it is true that most travellers need a real person guide to educate and inform about archaeology and history, some research their destination before they arrive, and are driven by a determination to learn independently. In these cases, Herculaneum and Pompeii CGI Reality is a fitting conclusion.

 As with all our tours to Pompeii and Herculaneum from Rome, you will arrive in Naples by train, and on this day trip from Rome by bullet train, journey time is impressive - 222 kilometres in 1 hour and 14 minutes.

 The Circumvesuviana line will move you between Naples and the archaeological sites of Herculaneum and Pompeii during your day. You will meet your AR leaders and learn how to use the tech. Be prepared to see what other travellers can only imagine!

 After the tours, you'll have free time in Naples to seek out real pizza before returning to Rome, and we direct you to the heartland of tasty Neapolitan flavours.

 This is not a journey of discovery and exploration, but more rather a realization that the ancient world was not so dissimilar to our own.




 Rated 5 / 5 by Denise F on June 17th, 2023  We are so pleased we booked this! The impressions were just amazing and everyone else around us wanted to see what we could see. Fantastic! Reaching Herculaneum and Pompeii from Rome was at first to Naples by very fast train bullet train, an hour each way, and then we took care of the local trains ourselves between the sites without any problems although the carriages were quite old. Great day.
