What makes this tour special

Discover the ancient city of Pompeii, whose ruins lie in the shadow of the Vesuvius, and discover one of the most fascinating and visited archaeological sites in the world on this private tour.

On your private half-day tour, you will:


On this private tour, you will learn about the infamous eruption of Vesuvius that would bury the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum – preserving them for two thousand years in lava, ash and rubble. Pompeii was a popular seaside resort for many well-to-do Romans and a thriving port town full of trade.  


Walk the streets of this Ancient Roman city with your guide who will tell you all about the history of Pompeii and the way of life of those who lived here. Visit the bathhouses, the Forum, the fast food shops, the villas of the rich, the apartments of the less well off, see political graffiti, admire colourful frescoes and mosaics, spot the wheel and hoof marks gauged into the cobbled streets, and temples of this ancient civilisation.

It is exciting, humbling, and moving to see the plaster casts of the people and animals who tragically lost their lives in the eruption; your expert guide will tell you all the known details of everything that happened on that fateful August day in 79 AD, as well as the extensive work that has gone into the excavations and preservation of the city.
