What people are saying about Foro Civile di Pompei

Vincenzo was a fabulous tour guide, he was very informative and had a lot of knowledge regarding Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvio! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is able to walk a good distance. The walk up Mt. Vesuvio is not for everyone. Thank you Vincenzo for a terrific trip to Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvio!

Anna Sorrento was an amazing guide! She led us to the most intersting places of Pompeii and told interesting anecdotes. It was an advantage that she works herself as an archeologue at Pompeii. She also made sure that we could stand in the shade when possible. We highly recommend taking a tour with Anna!

Very well organised tour! Vincenzo was very knowledgable and looking out for the group. Both attractions are very worth a visit!

We had our tour with Paolo, she was a great guide and explained we needed to know. Great experience!

Very nice, exquisite staff. Definitely to be recommended.
