You will have a 3-hour private tour of the ruins of the ancient city of Pompeii. You will experience how Pompeii looked 2,000 years ago through the magic of Virtual Reality. You will be surrounded and completely immersed in 360-degree virtual reality that goes on a historical journey through ancient Pompeii - just as it was before the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. After your private tour is complete your guide will show you to Caupona Restaurant, where you will have a typical Roman lunch.

Know More about this tour

Meet your local tour guide at 10 am at the Suisse Restaurant in Piazza Porta Marina outside the entrance to the ruins (across from the Carabinieri). He or she will have a printed sign with your name on it.
A professional guide and staff member will check you in and give you your 'time traveling equipment' (your VR headset). You will follow your guide into the ruins and arrive at your first point of interest. Listen to your fun and passionate guide as he or she speaks about current points of interest. Next, you will be instructed to put on your virtual reality headset and witness the point of interest you are standing in front of come back to life right before your eyes! The streets, homes, taverns, temples, theaters, markets and citizens of Pompeii live again as they once were.
After watching each 2- to 6-minute 'virtual reality scenes' you will have time to take pictures and speak with your guide.
After your private tour is complete your guide will show you to Caupona Restaurant, which is located within easy walking distance.
A "caupona" was a tavern, a place where the ancient people of Pompeii had their daily meals (we can count 89 in Pompeii).
Eat in earthenware dishes and drink from beautiful pointed amphoras, glasses and cups. The cuisine is mainly based on the discovery of distant flavors and the ancient times bringing to light ingredients that are not often used in our kitchens so as to achieve a genuine and balanced menu.
Menu includes 4 courses, one glass of Mulsum (wine) and water.
