Full description
Attracting some 2 million tourists every year, Pompeii is without question one of the most important archaeological sites in Italy, if not the world.

Skip the long lines on this private 2-hour tour, and discover the remains of the Roman city like a VIP. See ancient ruins, destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius, leaving the city buried under mountains of volcanic ash.

Houses and even individual utensils remained intact when the city was eventually unearthed. As you walk, experience an everyday Roman town almost like it was under the empire.

See the majestic Roman Amphitheatre, small theater, and public gymnasium. Explore the places where Romans had fun and held banquets. See frescoes frozen in time, and even poignant casts of citizens and their pets, all killed on one fatal day in 79 A.D.

Antonio gave a great tour

We spent a few hours with Antonio and learned so much about Pompei from him. It is far more interesting and educational to have a live teacher whom you can engage with and can point out places and things that you would easily overlook. It was just our family on the tour so we could always hear, which isn't always possible in large group tours. Overall, a really great experience.

Antonio was a wonderful guide for our family (two kids, ages 10 and 13). He helped us to imagine what life would have been like in Pompeii before and after the volcano. He showed us a good variety of different types of buildings, and made very good use of our short time at the site. We really enjoyed our tour!

Merci à Sylvia qui a su s'adapter aux adultes et aux enfants. Elle a répondu à toutes nos questions et a rendu la visite vivante. Son français est parfait.
