Full description
Explore the beautiful ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum on a private 5-hour tour with a licensed guide. This experience will take you on a trip back in time where you’ll see how these two towns were affected by the Vesuvius eruption in their own ways. Thanks to the historical and archeological background of your guide, the stories and facts will bring the cities back to life. If you feel like changing the route a bit, that's no problem—everything can be customized.

Your historical journey starts at the Pompeii’s train station where your guide will wait for you. As soon as you set foot in the remains of this city, you’ll be transported to another era. Feel the history as you visit the theater, the sacred area, and a brothel with signs and symbols all around. See the preservation techniques in all its splendor with the plastered casts of some of the victims.

Herculaneum offers a different sight to its visitors. Here, you have a panoramic view of the city and its ruins and remains due to how different the eruption and ashes reached the town. See the contrasts between these two cursed cities and how different they were affected by the eruption. While in Pompeii you see more of the public areas, in Herculaneum you have an intimate look into the lives of the people that used to live here. Check out an ancient shore, a private house, a bakery, and more.
