Full description
Skip the long ticket lines on this 2-hour tour, and discover the remains of the Roman city. See ancient ruins, destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, leaving the city buried under mountains of volcanic ash. Your guide will take you to see houses and everyday items that were still almost intact when the city was unearthed. Experience this everyday Roman town, almost like it was under the Roman Empire. Highlights include the Roman Amphitheater, small theater, and public gymnasium. See places where the Romans had their fun and held banquets, and discover frescoes frozen in time, and poignant casts of citizens and their pets.

We had a wonderful experience at Pompeii with our guide, Carmen. Carmen was fantastic at explaining the key attractions this huge city had to offer. Her story telling and ability to share fun facts while also unveiling the depths of the history made for a very fun afternoon. We left feeling educated and we're very grateful to Carmen who also noted some other areas to visit after the tour. Overall an excellent experience for such an affordable price. Brilliant value.

Excellent tour. We were very late going and the people were extremely accomodating and super friendly. Our tour guide was called Dario and he was very charismatic and knowledgeable. He really brought the place to life as there were very few if any signs telling people what the buildings are. It’s 39€ each which I think is very reasonably priced and definitely worth it especially if it is your first time going like us. Tour lasts for 2 hours which is the perfect timing as it really is quite hot.

Knowledgeable guide - Pompei is too big to explore on your own and we were glad we did a tour! The tour doesn’t cover everything (that’d be impossible anyway) but it covers the most important parts of Pompeii. The English was satisfactory and there is an option of staying in Pompeii after the tour, which we did. We came late for our tour and they were very accommodating, even fitting us in the next tour!
