The Best of Pompeii Small-group Tour - Unveiling The Buried City

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Arrive at Pompeii and skip the lines meet one of our expert English-speaking guides. As you walk through the shops, temples, public baths, and houses that composed the thriving city, your guide will recount the fascinating stories of ancient life and how it was decimated by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius.
    See how people lived nearly 2,000 years ago with stops at a Roman bakery, the Temple of Apollo, the Roman Forum, an ancient supermarket, an old cemetery, and a theater. The tour will also visit the touching and eerie plaster death casts of a few of the unfortunate people caught in the eruption. If appropriate for the group, you’ll also step into an ancient brothel.
    The walk is capped off with a stroll along the city walls offering panoramic views of Naples and Capri.
    With a group of 15 people or fewer you won’t ever struggle to hear your guide, and you will have plenty of time and access to ask all the questions you’re going to have about ancient life in this incredibly well-preserved city. Our expert Pompeii guides have dedicated their lives to the study of this city and there are no better people to introduce you to this jewel of world heritage.
