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.

A excellent way to see Pompeii archaeological park. Maria our guide was very informative with interesting stories as well. Tour moved along well. Maria answered all our questions without hesitation. We could stay after the tour to explore more of the park on our own. Highly recommend!

Our Guide was very knowledgable and shared lots of interesting facts. She took us through the the streets, theatres and inside a reconstructed house. The tour took less than two hours then she explained on the map what is left if we want to explore on our own. Recommended.

The guide was friendly and informative. Very helpful. The meeting point was easy to find. Make sure you exchange your voucher at the meeting point before the tour. This is the only place on site to do this exchange. If you plan on both Herculaneum and Pompeii, i would recommend this Pompeii tour after Herculaneum, but it also stands on it’s own
