Full description

Walk through the ruins of Pompeii with your small group and explore this ancient city, which was buried by Vesuvius in 79 AD. Walk straight past the long lines of tourists and enjoy skip-the-line access to this iconic archaeological site.  Visit the western part of the town, where the most important buildings are located. See monuments such as the Marina Gate, the Basilica, the Forum, the baths, the Lupanar (brothel), the main street and the theaters. You will also get to see plaster casts of Pompeii's tragic citizens. At the end of the tour, your guide will give you some suggestions on how to spend the rest of the day in the modern city of Pompeii and can direct you towards the Sanctuary Dedicated to Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, which is just a few steps from the archeological site.

Our tour with Sal was really good. The group was bigger than expected, but it didn't matter because you have an earpiece so you can hear everything Sal was saying. I'm really glad we joined so that we could make the most of our day out. There is so much to see!

Our guide was very nice and cracked a joke from time to time. It was a very good overview of the city, of course you can't see everything in 2 hours; but we also received other great ideas about where we could go after the tour. I wouldn't describe the tour as a small group tour with an archaeologist guide - we were about 25 people, but we each received a headset so we could understand everything well.

We were able to book a tour fairly last minute. The night before. Pompeii was way bigger than we thought it would be, we really didn’t give ourselves enough time. The tour really Hits all the highlights of Pompeii though. Even though it says it is a 2 hour tour I would give yourself extra time afterwards to explore further.
