Know More about this tour

After meeting your guide at the local train station, you will head into the ruins of Pompeii and listen to the fascinating story of how this once-thriving city was destroyed almost in an instant by the massive amounts of volcanic ash and pumice that erupted from Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. This enormous archaeological site is a treasure trove that boasts impressive artifacts, architecture and sculptures.

You will not wait in line as you walk through the Porta Marina, one of Pompeii's original entrances. Learn how Pompeii was rediscovered in 1748 and has been in a continual state of restoration ever since. The ancient city sprawls over 165-acres (66-hectares), of which only 49-acres (20-hectares), have been excavated to date. You will head to the Forum, the wide open courtyard lined by columns of various styles, where a view of Mount Vesuvius looms ominously in the distance. Among the highlights of the archeological site are the Porta Marina, Roman Forum, sanctuary of Venus and surrounding temples, House of the Menander, House of the Faun, Central Bath and the Lupanare of Pompeii.

After your guided tour concludes you can continue to explore the ancient ruins of Pompeii on your own.

  • Our guide Luca was outstanding. He provided detail about Pompeii that we hadn't gotten from a previous guided tour. We highly recommend this tour.

  • Perfecta! La guía que se llama Alexandra es la mejor. Hicimos un viaje por varias ciudades en Italia y contratamos otras guías, pero Alexandra fue la guía que de verdad nos transportó por completo a ese lugar, su conocimiento es increíble y sobre todo la pasión con la que te explica cada lugar.

  • Nancy was a wonderful guide. She was extremely knowledgeable and fun. We enjoyed our afternoon with her.

  • We loved our tour in Pompeii, led by Lena. She was energetic, funny, and insightful. Lena was excellent at guiding us through the throngs of other tourists, but patient with us as we asked questions and snapped photos. We only had a couple of hours at the site, but our family got an in depth experience. Would definitely recommend this tour with Lena!

  • Lina was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. This was one of the best tours I have been on. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We highly recommend this tour wirh Lina.

  • Our guide, Teresa, was fabulous. She was happy to customise the tour to some specific sites we wanted to see, and adjust to look further at things that caught our eye as we went around the site. She was very friendly, fun and knowledgable. Without a doubt it was so incredibly worth doing a private tour that was exactly at our pace. It made the trip much more engaging for my 12 year old, also. We saw so many huge tour groups that would have been a very different experience.

  • Adriana our tour guide was fantastic - very friendly and knowledgeable about the Tour and history she was great with our kids and also kept them engaged in the Tour - Highly recommended and ask for Adriana if you book this tour

  • It was a good tour. I would have rated it higher had Lucio not been on his phone for about 4-5 times during the tour.
