What to expect

Explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site for two hours with the help of your expert guide, who will take you around the city preserved by volcanic ash from Mount Vesuvius’ eruption in AD 79.

Start by skipping the line when you enter the city at Porta Marina Superiore, one of the ancient city’s seven gates. Walk the main streets and wander around the Forum, the old heart of the city and the center of public life. From here you can see Mount Vesuvius overlooking the city.

Discover constructions such as the Basilica (business and legal center), Thermal Baths, Temples, Bakery and Great Theater of Pompeii. Listen to interesting anecdotes from your archeological guide, who will tell you about people who lived in Pompeii. Even peek at plaster casts of people who were in the city at the time of the eruption.

See artworks, mosaics and frescoes in various places that are well-maintained and will take you back nearly 2000 years. Highlights include the House of the Vetti and the Lupanar Brothel. Find out how this famous brothel got its name and see its preserved stone beds and frescoes.
