Full description
Experience the wonder of the ancient archaeological site at Pompeii and gain a unique insight into this UNESCO World Heritage Site from your guide throughout a half-day tour. You'll meet your local guide for the day and board your coach to Pompeii, passing the beautiful towns along the Amalfi Drive.

Upon arrival, you'll begin a guided tour of the ruins. Pompeii was lost for 1,700 years, partially destroyed and buried under ash and pumice after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. On this tour you’ll see the uncovered remains of life as it was on the day of the eruption, encountering ancient baths, bakeries, the arena, and even a brothel.

The frozen remnants of Pompeii tell a compelling story about the day the volcano erupted. Continued excavation of the site has revealed statues, skeletons, and tools for you to see. Not only that, but you’ll also learn about what people were eating, the clothes they were wearing, and much more about the day of the eruption.
