What to expect

Seeing Pompeii on your own can be difficult and baffling. That’s why our tour has been designed to bring alive the history and tragic end of this ancient city.

Led by an expert English-speaking guide in groups of 15 or fewer, you’ll learn all about daily life in the ancient Roman world and see how the inhabitants died in the eruption of Vesuvius. Your day looks like this:

  • Arrive in Pompeii and skip the lines
  • Meet your professional local guide
  • Stroll the shops, temples, public baths and houses
  • See the plaster-cast remains of Pompeii’s doomed inhabitants
  • Porta Marina
  • The Basilica
  • The Temple of Apollo
  • The Roman Forum
  • Pompeii’s main street
  • The Macellum – an ancient supermarket
  • The Cave Cane– home of the Tragic Poet
  • A Roman bakery
  • The cemetery
  • A panoramic walk with views of Naples and Capri
  • An ancient brothel (depending on age of group members)
