What makes this tour special

Explore the majestic ruins of the ancient city of Pompeii, a once thriving and vibrant Roman port town on the bay of Naples. On 24 August 79 AD, the city suffered one of the most famous and deadliest volcanic eruptions in history, Mount Vesuvius. Thanks to the ash and lava flows that spewed from the Volcano, the ancient city remained preserved in volcanic rock for two thousand years. It is now one of the most complete, fascinating, and visited archaeological sites in the world. 

On your private tour, you will:

Explore the amazing ruins of Pompeii - one of the busiest and most important trade and port towns for the ancient Romans, as well as a popular seaside resort. Your expert private guide will tell you all about the infamous eruption of Vesuvius in August 79 AD, which buried the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum – preserving them for two thousand years in lava, ash, and rubble. 

Explore the original cobblestoned streets of Pompeii, with the carriage wheel and hoof indents still visible, with your guide who will bring the past back to life for you as you learn about the daily life and business of the Pompeiians. You'll visit the magnificent public bathhouses, walk through the various tepid, hot, and cold baths each opulently decorated in stucco and mosaic, and learn about the Romans' well-developed sense of hygiene.

Wander around the Forum with its temples and basilicas - public meeting houses, and see the fast food shops, the villas of the rich, and the apartments of the less well-off. Learn about the politics of the times as you wander past walls daubed painted with political graffiti, and admire colourful frescoes and mosaics in the grander buildings. 

Take some moments to contemplate the deeply moving plaster casts of the people and animals who tragically lost their lives in the eruption. Learn everything that we know about the drama of that day, and also the fascinating stories of how Pompeii was rediscovered and excavated throughout the last century, and the ongoing work to discover more and preserve it for future generations.
