Full description
Reserve your private guided walking tour of Pompeii (priced for 2 persons) and experience one of the finest examples of early Roman life in its excavated ruins.

In 79 AD nearby Mount Vesuvius erupted with such force that it buried the city of Pompeii beneath ash and rubble. It wasn’t until the 18th century that the city was again revealed.

Your 3-hour guided walk will take you to the Theater, where countless comedies and tragedies played. Next, it’s on to the Thermal Baths, the earliest of health spas.

Pompeii was a thriving maritime metropolis. It was a port for ships sailing the Mediterranean, and its colorful culture developed around the many bars, restaurants, and brothels that lined its raucous streets. From clothing to slaves, merchants offered their wares to passersby. Visit restaurants, see wine cellars, and learn the prices of items for sale.

Marvel at the oldest Roman Amphitheater, the domain of gladiators, and take a peek into the infamous Red Light District. You’ll also visit the Forum, where art and philosophy met politics and religion. Admire the architecture and imagine the formal ceremonies and processions that took place in these very streets so many years ago.

Getting to Pompeii is easy: located several kilometers south of Naples and 240 kilometers south of Rome, it can be reached by train (Pompeii Scavi Station). Your professional guide is available to meet you at your hotel, the port, the train station, or the airport.
