Full description

Walk through the ruins of Pompeii with your group and explore this ancient city, which was buried by Vesuvius in 79 AD. Walk straight past the long lines of tourists and enjoy skip-the-line access to this iconic archaeological site.  Visit the western part of the town, where the most important buildings are located. See monuments such as the Marina Gate, the Basilica, the Forum, the baths, the Lupanar (brothel), the main street and the theaters. You will also get to see plaster casts of Pompeii's tragic citizens. At the end of the tour, your guide will give you some suggestions on how to spend the rest of the day in the modern city of Pompeii and can direct you towards the Sanctuary Dedicated to Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, which is just a few steps from the archeological site.

I can't imagine going to Pompeii without a tour guide. It's much larger than we had imagined, so it was really helpful to go with someone that could give us an understanding of what we were seeing. Our guide was a charming older gentleman named Alfonso, and he really made it fun. After having traveled throughout Italy, this site is at the top of our list of must-sees. Our only regret is that we didn't allow ourselves more time to explore. You could easily spend an entire day there.

Having a guide at Pompei is a must!! We loved getting the opportunity to walk through the city with a guide to hear the background of what we were seeing. This allowed us later to walk through other areas after the tour and really understand what we were looking at.

This was the best tour I’ve been on! Maria, our tour guide was absolutely AMAZING!!! She explained everything so well, she was patient, she was able to answer all questions asked, she had a sense of humour and cleared up any myths that we had. I was blown away by all the extra bits of information she gave us, it was just so good that I feel like I’m not doing her justice. Maria made this incredible experience perfect! Thank you Maria!
