A walk in Pompeii is an unforgettable experience. I will explain you about the town and how the Romans used to live. We will visit all the most important public buildings and private houses.

After a lunch break in a typical pizzeria/restaurant or winery if required, we'll go straigh to Herculaneum, which is much smaller but better preserved than Pompeii.

A Recent Review of this tour

Paolo was an amazing guide. Our group was a well traveled one, and we all agreed Paolo was the best guide/tour we had ever had. He was super informative, fun and engaging. Visiting these sites with Paolo enhanced the experience 100 %. The restaurant he recommended for lunch was phenomenal. And our driver and van were great. If you're on the fence, just hire Paolo-you won't be disappointed!
