Private tour to the Excavations of Pompeii as a local Person would


Discover the Ancient Pompeii as a local person would with your private guide! An incredibly well preserved roman town, buried for centuries under volcanic ashes. Step into ancient public baths, private villas, public buildings, snack bars, shops, theatres and a 2000 year old amphitheatre. Marvel at the fabulously preserved frescoes and mosaics which adorn the walls and floors of the villas. High on the list of the Wonders of the World, the second most visited archaeological site in Italy, a must for your travel. This tour is designed to move around by public transport so to get immersed into local way of living. It is safe and cheap: the best way to discover Pompeii!

Itinerary

Right in front of the cruise terminal we will catch the electric train for a 10 minutes ride which will show you some of the town of Naples and its city walls. Once at the train station we will catch the circumvesuviana, a train to Pompeii is available every 30 minutes and it takes about half an hour.

The train station at Pompeii is right in front of the entrance to the archeological site.

My tour of Pompeii is tuned to your desires and physical attitude. The city is roughly 150 acres large, it hosted once 15000 inhabitants, so the visit will be focused on the highlights surrounding the city centre (Forum), unless differently required.

However most of the following places will be visited during our walking tour: the Forum and its public buildings, The Thermal Bath, The Whore House, The Big and the Small Theatre, a private house.

If you like, there will be opportunities to buy souvenirs, books, a pizza or simply a pressed orange juice.

Same itinerary on the way back.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour of Pompeii with Fabrizio was great! He was at our port to pick us up on time, helped us navigate the local trains to arrive at our destination and was extremely knowledgeable about the site, history and everything. The scavenger hunt for the kids was a great way to keep them engaged on the very hot and sunny day, but they also learned a lot. I would highly recommend Fabrizio for your tours, with adults or kids!!
