What people are saying about Pompeii

Very good experience! Anne our archaeologist guide is adorable, competent and passionate. My driver guide Catello is the soul of Naples. Very pleasant to listen to (as a guide too), nice car, friendly…, we don't see the round trip going. I recommend this experience although a little short with all there is to see and understand. 9.5 / 10

Our driver, Francesco, and the archeologist, Diego, who was our guide, were both fantastic: very polite and always on time, with an excellent sense of humour. I'll never forget our visit and the vivid as well as entertaining, at the same time scholarly descriptions of ancient culture. Thank you, Francesco and Diego!

If you intend to use the ticket extensively (for example, I was in Pompeii, Herculaneum, Paestum - including the train - and in the Archaeological Museum of Naples) it is definitely worth it, so I can only recommend it.

Lack of information on how to collect the 3-day pass Which should preferably be collected the day before

Ideal for a three day stay. Free access to transport is very convenient. I recommend.
