Return Details

80045 Pompei, Metropolitan City of Naples, Italy
Make your own way to the Piazza Porta Marina in central Pompeii to meet your guide (unless hotel or port pickup has been arranged), and use your skip-the-line tickets to head straight inside the archeological site of Pompeii.

Follow your guide on a walking tour of the ancient Roman city, admiring ruins that date back to as early as the 7th century BC.

Learn how the city was buried by the AD79 eruption of the nearby Mt Vesuvius volcano as you admire the remarkably preserved Roman Baths, Termopolium Capuano, and House of the Tragic Poet; stand in awe before the world’s oldest surviving Roman amphitheater; then hear stories of Roman life as you wander the Forum.

Next, head to the newly restored Villas or ‘Domus’, which were once home to rich aristocrats, and only opened to the public in March 2017. Stroll the magnificent ruins, stopping to admire the elaborate mosaics, beautifully restored frescoes, and gardens decorated with statues of mythical gods.

See the Domus of Venus with its colonnaded façade, striking courtyard, and renowned painting of the Birth of Venus, emerging from a seashell. Next, visit the House of Octavius Quartius, where the highlight is a painting of Narcissus; explore the House of the Fruit Trees, with its exquisite frescos, and stop by the House of Iulia Felix, which once served as a spa retreat.

After around five hours exploring Pompeii, your tour ends back at the starting point.

Had a fantastic tour of Pompeii. Tour guide was one of the best we have had during our visit to Italy. Not only focused on the history of Pompeii but also pointed out things that made Pompeii unique from other historical sites. Would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Pompeii.

This tour was fantastic!! Our tour guide, Veronica, was the best guide that we have ever had. She made the time fly by and involved our kids in the entire discussion. I would definitely recommend the five hour tour since I don’t think two hours would be enough time. Great experience!!

Wow we walked, listened and talked for an amazing five hours with Giada, our knowledgeable and energetic tour guide. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Our private tours were the stand out experiences of our trip - and this was no exception. We were tired in the best possible way and profoundly impressed by Pompeii and our guide. We entered Pompeii with a decent knowledge of the site but without out guide providing context and direction.. literally.. we would not have enjoyed or valued our experience anywhere near the level we did.

What a wonderful tour! Our guide Fiorencia my apologies on the spelling was knowledgeable, attentive, and read our interests well. She adapted the tour and the stories to make the day relevant to us, which made it that much more special. She really knows Pompeii well and was able to give us details about the people who lived there and what it was like in the city and later when the eruption occurred. We learned quite a bit and the city became real rather than just an archaeological site. She was also considerate of our being tourists, helping us with future travel suggestions and taking time for restroom breaks and photo opportunities. Highly recommend!

Our guide was professional, very knowledgeable, entertaining, and just overall wonderful. Extra effort was made to make the tour fit into our schedule. We saw all the highlights of Pompeii, had the sights and history explained in detail, and didn't waste time aimlessly wandering around on our own. Highly recommended. We'd do it again to see all the stuff we didn't have time for.

Our private tour of Pompei with our guide Barbara was fantastic. While 5 hours seems long, it flew by as there is so much to see. Barbara was very knowledgeable about both the history and the sights of Pompei, which made the tour very informative. I could not imagine tackling Pompei without a guide. Barbara knew right where to take us, got into private sights and made sure we had priority where ever we were. Awesome tour! Highly recommended.

After spending this day with an expert guide, I can't imagine doing Pompeii without one. Our guide was fantastic and her detailed knowledge of the site and history made this ancient city come alive. We saw so much more than we would have if we had wandered around with a map and guidebook.
