  • Stroll through the fully preserved streets of Pompeii, the thriving port city buried after the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD.

  • Visit the most interesting parts of the city with an experienced guide who will tell you the facts and stories that bring the ruins to life.

  • Look at the prints of people caught in the eruption.


When you arrive in Pompeii, you will meet your experienced English speaking guide and enter the sight without waiting in the long queues. As he guides you through the shops, temples, baths and houses that make up the thriving city, he tells the fascinating stories of ancient life and how it was destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius. See how people lived almost 2,000 years ago making stops in a Roman bakery, the Apollo temple, the Roman forum, an old supermarket and an old cemetery. On the tour you will also see the touching and eerie plaster casts of unhappy people caught during the eruption. If it is appropriate for the group, you also enter an old brothel. The walk ends along the city walls with panoramic views of Naples and Capri.

With a group of 15 people or less, you won't have to bother listening to your guide and you will have plenty of time and access to ask all the questions you have about ancient life in this incredibly preserved city. Our experienced Pompeii guides have dedicated their lives to studying this city and there are no better people to introduce you to this jewel of world heritage.
