What to expect

Take this unforgettable journey back in time while experiencing Skip the Line access to one of the world’s best preserved archaeological sites. You’ll be free to travel to Pompeii independently, where your official Pompeii tour guide will wait for your arrival. Your Skip the Line ticket will save you time waiting in line and will allow you more time to explore the ruins. We carefully select the most entertaining and knowledgeable guides to ensure that your time in Pompeii is enjoyable and a trip that you won’t be quick to forget.

Join your group of 30 people or less and explore the incredible buildings Pompeii has to offer, such as past homes, bath houses, outdoor theaters and even fast food stores. Your expert guide will enlighten you on the final days of Pompeii, leading up to the devastating eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. See the chilling death casts of the people and animals who didn’t escape the volcano's wrath.

You’ll learn what each building was used for - where families ate their meals, where friends socialised and where the sailors went when they docked. As you take in this historic site you’ll be sure to hear every word from your English-speaking guide, as you’ll receive an audio headset to allow for wandering and taking photos as you traverse the site.
