Know More about this tour

History comes alive! on this 2.5-hour guided walking tour of Pompeii. In 79 AD this historic city fell victim to an eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, and the thriving metropolis was no more. To visit to these world-renowned ruins is to experience life as it once was, on the shores of the Bay of Naples, in the early Empire.

First, we will visit the Theatre to imagine comedies and tragedies that played out upon the stage. Next, its on to the ornate Thermal Baths, with their dressing rooms, baths, toilets and athletic fields. These early health clubs were truly ahead of their time. The streets of Pompeii were alive with purveyors of food, clothing and - slaves. Well visit wine cellars, restaurants and bars. Well compare prices and learn of rare vintage recipes as we imagine life in this bustling metropolis of old. Well admire the ancient barracks, domain of gladiators, and the infamous red light district. No trip to Pompeii would be complete without a stop in the Forum. The awe-inspiring domain of priests and temples, politicians and public buildings, this is where art, philosophy, theology and economics of Pompeian culture meld. Getting to Pompeii is easy. Located several kilometers south of Naples and 240 km south of Rome, it can be reached by train (Pompeii Scavi Station).

There is no waiting in line for entrance to the historic ruins of Pompeii and you will have a top-rated local guide. Pack a hat for summer sun, and wear comfortable shoes. You will actually walk on lava rock.

    Italo was an excellent guide! Very fun and focused on the science behind what has been discovered In Pompeii. Very accurate and interesting

    Our host really brought Pompeii to life. We were lucky enough to go when it was raining, so we saw how ingenious the Romans were with water management. Our host was funny and had a deep knowledge of Pompeii. It was so much more incredible that I imagined. Highly recommend visiting Pompeii if you are in the south of Italy.

    We had a great tour with Lelo. The group size was small enough to easily move around and allow everyone to ask questions. Lelo was entertaining and informative, and made the tour engaging and interactive. There is so much to see in Pompei, so it was very helpful to have a guide show us some highlights and give us the historical context of what we were looking at since we only had a couple hours to spend in Pompei. For things we didn’t see during the tour, Lelo told us what they were and where to find them. Having an archaeologist as our guide was also a great asset! We would recommend this tour.

    We had a wonderful tour with our guide Giulia. She was extremely Knowles able, easily able to answer all our questions. A very great experience

  • 19-Oct-2022

    Our guide was very engaging and made sure to involve everyone. Pompei is a very large place and having someone navigate us around and take us to the most important places was very beneficial. Along with explaining special facts you wouldn’t know by simply walking around.

  • 17-Oct-2022

    We had a very experienced and knowledgeable guide. She showed us incredible items in the city, and explained and answered in great detail.

  • 16-Oct-2022

    This was our third trip to Pompeii and the first time we really were able to fully understand the history and what life was like prior to this catastrophe. Fabrezio, our guide was outstanding. His knowledge and passion as he presented the rich culture of Pompeii in vivid detail made this tour a must.

  • 15-Oct-2022

    Fabrizio was both entertaining and knowledgeable. He was easy to find (had a sign with the names of the group members that was easy to read). Left on time. Knew how to work the area and avoid overly crowded areas. One member of our group had commented that he learned more from 2 hours with Fabrizio than he did with a 6 hour audio tour a few years ago. Highly recommended!
