Full description
Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the famous archaeological site of Pompeii with an expert official guide. Thanks to your priority entry tickets you will skip the stress of the long line, leaving more time to explore. Accompanied by the guide, you'll explore the main features of the ancient city including the baths, bakeries and much more.

Pompeii holds an intense fascination for visitors today. Following the eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius in the 79 A.D., Pompeii lay buried and forgotten for hundreds of years. The town is high on the list of the wonders of the world, and the excavations begun in the 18th century still continues to this day.

Your guide will take you through some of the ancient streets of Pompeii, where you can see baths, forums and villas built by the prosperous Romans in the year 80 B.C. Marvel at the fabulously preserved frescoes which adorned the walls and floors of the villas. Even if your interests do not lie in history, this is an archaeological site that cannot fail to impress you.

Amazing experience enhanced by a friendly & knowledgeable guide.

I cannot fault this tour. The lady guide was so hospitable and made the tour very interesting, and the use of a headset ensured we could always hear her, as it was crowded. Also having the entry ticket included in the price, saved a lot of queuing to enter the site. I would highly recommend this tour & company.

We took this tour in September 2019 and enjoyed it very much. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the history and people of Pompeii. An amazing tour, as we walked amongst the ruins and saw the ingenuity and engineering skills of an ancient people. Pompeii is a much larger area than I had expected and the areas we visited were simply stunning. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see Pompeii.

Such a great insight to what life was like 79AD

Brilliant tour, our guide Lucia was brilliant had such knowledge of what happened at that time. Explained about the buildings & who lived there & how; small details that you would miss probably if you did it without a guide. Really didn't have any questions by the end as she had covered everything! Can not recommend this enough
