Worth it!

We took a private tour and our tour guide was Marily. Great experience and worth the money. The Pompeii City is an amazing experience but doing it with Marily was more than good. A lot of knowledge and she was really nice. On time picking up in the train station. The Tour is amazing. Highly recommended!

Rome to Pompeii full day tour with Paolo

We were on a cruise ship to Rome and decided to visit Pompeii for the day. We docked at the port of Civitavecchia and our driver Pino was there waiting for us, he spoke good English and his driving was very good too, it didn't take that long to get to Pompeii and the ride wasn't bad. We arrived at the entrance of Pompeii ruins as planned and Paolo was there waiting for us, a very nice gentleman! He is an official guide and we didn't have to wait in the queue for the tickets, he was able to show us the most important things of Pompeii and we really enjoyed it. The ride back to the port of Rome was great, not a lot of traffic and we arrived on time. We really enjoyed the tour, thank you very much to both Paolo and Pino!
