Full description
Travel back almost 2000 years into the past on this immersive small-group tour to the ruins of the ancient cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Spend 2.5 hours exploring Pompeii on a guided tour, then enjoy 2 hours to discover Herculaneum at your own pace. Benefit from a maximum group size of 8 and a professional guide.

After pickup at your hotel in Naples around 8:30 AM, make your way with your guide to Pompeii, one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. Once there, take a pleasant walk around the ruins and be shown its highlights. Step by step, the city will return to its original splendor right before your eyes. Imagine gladiators working out while passing by the Gymnasium, and admire the acoustics of the Small Theater.

Continue to the majestic House of Menander and don’t miss the chance to wander around the Domus. Then, see the Temple of Isis, the Egyptian Goddess, before entering the colorful Baths whose pipe system will leave you speechless. Your guide will then lead you to the Forum, the market square so full of life back in the day.

Have a quick break for lunch (not included), then get ready to stroll around the enchanting town of Herculaneum. Though smaller than Pompeii, the Herculaneum archaeological site is still original and fascinating. Marvel at the colorful mosaics of the Baths, visit the House of the Alcova, and enter the Skeleton House. Pay attention to the wooden furniture and doors, still standing despite the lava and ashes that fell over the city. The tour concludes back in Naples around 4:30 PM.
