Full description

Skip the long ticket lines on this 2-hour guided 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.

Emmanuela was a wonderful tour guide! If you are considering taking a tour of Pompeii, I would highly recommend this one. As with any guided tour of a popular destination, they are generally only as good as the guide, and Emmanuela made this five stars. So many penises! (you'll understand if you take her tour) She was funny, knowledgeable and always willing and able to answer questions. It was also the perfect length, and I did not feel the group of 10 or so was too big. We always found space to gather (without headsets). This was the only tour we took where we had to arrange our own transportation from Naples, but once we got there, it was very easy to find the meeting point at the top of the hill. I highly recommend this tour.

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.
