Explore the Ruins of Pompeii out of the crowds with a private licensed guide!
This private tour is designed for visitors who want to explore the Excavations of Pompeii without the crowds and far away from the confusion that is often produced by the groups of tourists participating in the standard tours organized by the cruise lines.
Catch the opportunity to move around the Ancient Pompeii as a real Pompeian did 2000 years before. Visit ancient public baths, wine bars and shops, step into private villas, admire fabulously preserved frescoes and mosaics, explore public buildings and the theatres of a real ancient Roman colony where life was suddenly stopped by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius of 79 A. D. Pompeii rested buried by the ashes and other volcanic materials for approximately 16 centuries but it appears still almost intact.
Under the patronage of Unesco, Pompeii is a must for your travel. "Early Morning Pompeii" is the best way to discover it.

We will spend in the ruins 2, 30 hrs. My tour of Pompeii is designed according to the desires, needs and physical attitudes of guests. The city was 152 acres large and it hosted, according to the most of theories, 15/25. 0000 inhabitants. The 65 per cent of the town has been excavated. Our walking tour will be focused on the following places: Porta Marina, the Basilica, the Forum and the public buildings surrounding it like the Macellum (market place) and the Granaries, the Public Bath, a Pistrinum (bakery), a Thermopolium (wine-bar), a Private residence and the Small and Grand Theatre. If you have special requests don't hesitate to ask. During our walking tour I will tell you about the ordinary, public and night life of the ancient Pompeians, stories and anecdotes; I will point you corners, views and particular things that no one guide knows.

We had a great time with Giuseppe! We were able to arrange for him to pick us up at our Airbnb in Naples for an extra charge, and it was money well spent. We were at Pompeii when it opened, and beat most of the crowds and most of the heat. This is the way to go! He was very knowledgeable and very patient as we had a group of five with ages ranging from 12 to 86. Highly recommend this guide and this tour!
