Full description

The vast site is one of the best-preserved reminders of what life was like during the Roman Empire, and this especially designed “best of” tour unveils the "Buried City" to uncover its amazing history and tragic end. Led by an official Pompeii tour guide, you will wander the fully preserved streets of Pompeii and visit the incredible and emotional sights from a city that was buried under the massive eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD. Skip the long lines to enter the ruins, and stroll past the remains of shops, temples, public baths, and houses that comprised the once-thriving city. Hear fascinating stories about life in the Roman Republic, and see how ordinary people lived nearly 2,000 years ago. See the remains of a Roman bakery where the food is still almost intact. Go to the Temple of Apollo and Roman Forum, along with an ancient supermarket and an old cemetery. Marvel at the eerie and heart-wrenching plaster casts of those caught in the eruption at the exact moment of their death.

You can also go to one of the old brothels (if appropriate for your group), and stroll along the old city walls for panoramic views of Naples. Touring in a small group, you will never struggle to hear your guide and will have plenty of time to ask any questions you might have. The expert guides have dedicated their lives to the study of this city, and no one else is better qualified to introduce you to this jewel of world heritage.

Sehr interessante, kurzweilige und informative Führung! Absolut empfehlenswert! Unser Guide Anna war einfach super - sie beschäftigt sich bereits seit über 20 Jahren mit Pompeji und konnte daher natürlich sämtliche Fragen ausführlich beantworten. Mir ihrer lebendigen und humorvollen Art kam definitiv keine Langeweile auf und wir wären am liebsten noch länger mit ihr unterwegs gewesen!

We booked this tour a little bit last minute, but so glad we did. Our guide was excellent and provided a lot of context for what we were seeing. Highly recommended!! The only thing to note is that the "Get Yooyr Guide" pin location on Google Earth is not the right meeting location
