Full description
Discover the most extraordinary archaeological site on the Italian peninsula with a 2-hour guided tour of Pompeii.

Meet your guide by Pompeii rail station, connected to Naples by regular trains. Then, once you’ve purchased your entrance ticket (not included), walk down streets left intact for more than 2,000 years thanks to its protective covering of volcanic mud.

Learn how Pompeii was a rich and populous town in Roman times, full of private and public buildings. Your guide will explain how, on a summer's day in 79 AD, the entire town and around 20,000 of its inhabitants were buried under tons of ash and pumice from the violent explosion of Mt. Vesuvius.

Rediscover the everyday life of the Roman imperial era, and imagine the panic of the people before the city was buried. Your guide will take you to the Forum and Thermal Baths, as well as the Lupanar, the city’s brothel, where graphic graffiti can still be seen. Discover immaculate frescoes in houses, such as the House of the Faun (Casa del Fauno), one of the largest and most impressive of the city’s mansions.
