Full description
Avoid the lines with your tickets which skip-the-line access. The cursed city of Pompeii once flourished with life, cultural awakenings, and a buzzing civilization. But when tragedy stroke and the Vesuvius erupted burning everything in its path, the city of Pompeii became remains and ruins perfectly preserved. On this historical 2-hour private day trip, you have a chance to take a trip back in time to explore the ancient city of Pompeii. Its ruins, history and your licensed guide await! Your historical journey starts in Pompeii’s entrance "Porta Marina Superiore" where you will meet with your licensed guide. As soon as you set foot in the remains of this city, you’ll be transported to another era. Wander through its streets and thanks to the historical and archeological background of your guide, the stories and facts will make the city come back to life. The city of Pompeii once bustled with life and you can see that as you visit its theatre, the sacred area, and a brothel. What’s even more impressive is the plastered casts of some of the victims. Find out how the ashes and the techniques used to uncover the city helped to preserve the remains almost intact. You will have an expert by your side to answer all your questions.

Such an amazing, knowledgeable tour! Had a bit of rain and got a bit wet but it was all part of a great experience (maybe pack an umbrella as they don’t sell them inside. Good for sun or rain!). We dropped luggage at the entry of the Pompeii site and all was good. Thanks again!

Our guide Mike (MICHELE), met us at the entrance to Pompeii. He was welcoming and explained exactly what we were going to expect for the afternoon. Immediately Mike was engaging and we were exciting to start the tour. We spent around 2 hours being guided around Pompeii and learning about it’s amazing history. Mike explained and showed us some truly amazing sights we felt very fortunate to learn and see. Throughout the tour, we were entertained and very well informed and we felt Mike went that little bit further. A truly amazing experience guided by an expert who is passionate about, Pompeii and it’s history. Thank you for a wonderful experience Mike...

Raffaele was such a fabulous tour guide! He was so rich in knowledge and spoke about Pompeii with such passion. I definitely advise doing a group tour at Pompeii, it makes the experience so much more worth it. Because Raffaele has studied Pompeii he was able to answer everyone’s questions and provide insightful and unique information.
