Private Pompeii (skip the line) and Salerno ancient lanes


Living from Salerno cruise ship port you will visit the ancient Medieval as well Baroque town. Salerno had a Roman foundation, and was an important capital in Middle Age, when it was seat of one of the most important Medicine Universities of all Europe. Its ancient lanes are a shrine of ancient buildings and churches built all along the centuries, until the latest buildings of Contemporary Art architects. You will discover a town rich of history and art, opened to the sea with its seaside promenade, and full of amazing traditions - in craft as well as in food!

The afternoon will be dedicated to the visit of the ruins of Pompeii. 79 AD volcanic ashes destroyed but in the meanwhile preserved a whole Roman town. In a 2, 30 hour tour ancient Pompeii will come alive through my story telling. I will make you discover the real way of living in the 1st century AD. An amazing and unforgettable experience, back in history!

A Recent Review of this tour

Simona provided such a wonderful tour experience. We initially thought Pompeii was going to be the highlight of the day but Simona showed us so many wonderful things in Salerno itself. From a wonderful pastry shop, to unique handmade craft shops, to a delicious lunch outside of a small deli we thoroughly enjoyed the charm and hospitality of both Salerno and its people. By the end of the day Simona had us feeling like we were visiting with a friend and not just a guide. Highly recommended!
