Full description
Make your own way to the meeting point by the entrance to Pompeii’s archaeological site in time for a 09:00, 12:00 or 14:00 tour (depending on tour option chosen). After meeting your guide, set out on a guided walking tour of the ancient Roman city and marvel over the remarkably preserved ruins. Learn how the city was buried by the 79 A.D. eruption of the nearby Mount Vesuvius volcano and see ruins that date back to as early as the 7th century B.C. Stand in awe before the world’s oldest surviving Roman site, hear stories of Roman life as you wander the forum and listen as your guide points out the Roman baths, the Termopolium Capuano and the House of the Tragic Poet. With a tour commentary specially tailored to engage younger participants, the whole family can get involved, and kids will enjoy learning fun trivia and taking part in the tour. Best of all, your skip-the-line access to the archeological site means that the children won’t get bored waiting in the long queues. At the end of the tour, your guide will be happy to recommend nearby restaurants or assist with getting back to your hotel.
