What to expect

Step back in time and uncover the intriguing history of Pompeii during a small-group tour of its vast archaeological area! This experience is part of Iconic Insiders, a selection of tours designed for first time visitors to uncover what matters and get oriented in a new city. Your destination insider is a licensed guide who will offer recommendations and highlight the most visually attractive places of the itinerary.

Once a prosperous and cultured Roman city, Pompeii remained buried under ashes after the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD After centuries of excavations, the archaeological park has been brought back to life together with beautifully preserved buildings, objects, and works of art. Among the most visited sites in Italy, Pompeii offers unique insights about everyday life in ancient Rome during the 1st century and it provides some of the best examples of sumptuous Roman villas. During the tour, your guide will stop at the most interesting points to let you live the best experience inside the place, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.

Discover the Pompeians' private homes and the Roman city's most characteristic public places, including two theaters, the brothel, the spas, and a thermopolium. Walking along Via dell'Abbondanza, the busiest street in the city, you will learn about the place's past wealth while spotting the most popular shops. Visit the huge amphitheater, designed to accommodate up to 20,000 people, and admire the beautifully preserved frescoes and marble decorations that tell us more about life in Ancient Rome. Your guide will point out the typical electoral notices that you can see scattered throughout the city and you will have the opportunity to observe the plaster casts of the inhabitants as they were surprised by the volcanic eruption.
