Full description

Walk through the ruins of Pompeii with your 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.

The archaeological site of Pompeii is very extensive and difficult to visit independently, the indications on the spot are not exhaustive. The guided tour was fundamental from this point of view. Lina our guide was helpful and very knowledgeable. The only flaw was the wait, although we had a reservation for 10, they probably thought we were few and we left more than half an hour late to wait for more participants who joined on the spot.

Guide was really great and very knowledgeable. The tour did say it would take 2 hours and it was in fact slightly less by about 20 mins - it was so good we wanted it to go on for longer. We also found that it suggest to meet 15 mins early - we did this but popped to the bathroom and the tour had already set off ahead of the ten am start time so be sure to get there well ahead of time

We went at 11am at the end of June. It was very hot, but there were many opportunities for shade. The guide eat very knowledgeable and passionate and I especially appreciated his knowledge of the building materials and infrastructure innovations. Pompeii is an amazing place and gelato and limoncello spritzes are easily accessible right after.
