On arriving in Pompeii you’ll meet your tour guide and then explore the ruins for around 2 hours. Your guide will show you the traditions and daily life of ancient Pompeii. You’ll see the large theater, the necropolis, the thermal baths, and some of the amazing houses that were owned by the richest residents.

At the end of the Pompeii tour, you’ll visit a cameo and coral factory that’s located close to the ruins, where you’ll see the manufacturing processes used and have a chance to do a bit of shopping.

Lunch will be at the Vesuvio restaurant, which is just a short walk from the factory.

Great history, great sights.

I booked the Pompeii and Vesuvius tour but Vesuvius was closed due to weather, so I went to the Amalfi coast instead. The tour guides were really knowledgeable, and the day wasn’t too long. Having a small group was excellent. Lunch was alright, and the transport was good. Except if you’re tall like me, there’s not much leg room! But that’s about it!

Pompeï was very interesting. Amalfi coast was beautiful.

Pompei was the morning activity with the whole group. The organisation was to slow and the group was to big. The english of the guide was very hard to understand. She had to explain in Italian and in english. Splitting up would be much better! Vesuvius in the afternoon was cancelled. Amalfi coast was beautiful. We had a small group with a guide who spoke only and perfect English !

This tour was amazing. We had two guides one for each site. Both were very knowledgeable and inclusive. Special mention to Pasquale who drove us up Mt Vesuvius for our trek to the top. Lunch was also superb.
