Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your own way to Hotel Vittoria in central Pompeii to meet your private guide in time for a 9am, 12pm, or 2.30pm departure (depending on tour option chosen).

Use your skip-the-line tickets to head straight inside the archeological site of Pompeii and follow your guide on a walking tour of the ancient Roman city, admiring ruins that date back to as early as the 7th century BC. Learn how the city was buried by the AD79 eruption of the nearby Mt Vesuvius volcano as you admire the remarkably preserved Roman Baths, Termopolium Capuano, and House of the Tragic Poet; stand in awe before the world’s oldest surviving Roman amphitheater; then hear stories of Roman life as you wander the Forum.

After around two and a half hours exploring Pompeii, your tour ends back at the starting point.

This tour was amazing, fantastic... one of the best my family (my husband and two daughters 16 & 17 yrs old and I have ever been on. ROSSANA was the BEST guide we have ever had!!!!! She was so knowledgable and passionate about what she does. She made it so special and shared with us the tiniest details that we never could have appreciated on our own. If we could give Rossana and the tour 10 stars we would!!

This tour was excellent. Our tour guide Adriana was wonderful! Very knowledgeable, personable and just a great guide. We had a large group and she was more than accommodating to help us see all the highlights. We had our 92 year old mother with us and Adriana was very accommodating to make sure our mom was comfortable as there were parts she could not walk. This tour was great for everyone who loves history. It was a lot of walking so make sure you are ready, willing and able to walk with comfortable shoes and cold water.

This tour was one of the highlights of our Italy vacation, thanks to our guide, Lelo. Our group of 10 ranged in age from 11 to 83, and he kept everyone engaged the entire time. His knowledge of daily life in Pompeii and ancient Rome was exceptional, but what set him apart from other knowledgable guides was the way he read our group. He involved the pre-teens and teen with questions and examples he adjusted routes to accommodate our senior member without making it an issue and he had us laughing throughout. He went at a pace that worked for our group, telling stories, answering questions, and interacting with everyone in a way that made it a far richer experience than a larger tour with a microphone and headsets. He even discretely checked if it was okay to take the kids to the brothel. It was.. Main advice: If you're going to Pompeii, take a guided tour. Many people walking around on their own with maps looked lost and a couple tourists actually needed Lelo to tell them how to get out. Bring water and wear good walking shoes. August will be hot no matter what, but we went later in the day and had the luck of a rainstorm before we got there so it wasn't bad. And if at all possible, go with Lelo. Truly exceptional.

Fiorenzia total guess on the spelling...sorry! was an amazing guide. She was completely knowledgeable about even the most minor details and we asked a lot of questions, and provided loads of context that were most certainly not in the standard tour guide repertoire. We had a lot of fun, and it was one of our holiday highlights. Highly recommended.

Ida was great. Besides being very friendly she was very informative and gave us a very thorough look at the most important highlights of Pompeii. She was not overwhelming and quite well educated on the history of Pompeii. Would use her again for guided tours
