A dive in Ancient Rome - Skip-the-line included!


Try to ask anyone from around the world to name a site of archaeological significance: most will immediately answer "Pompeii!"

The site of Pompeii is of unparalleled importance and a trip to the area of the Campania region, for those with even the slightest interest in history, culture, society or archaeology, would be incomplete without visiting the town buried by the ashes of the volcano they thought dormant, Vesuvius, exploded in 79 AD.

Everything is incredibly well-preserved: today you can walk around an intact Roman town, enter houses, temples, theaters and even a brothel, and truly feel what it was like to live in Roman times.

**AS YOU ARRIVE IN POMPEII I CAN BUY THE TICKETS FOR YOU IF YOU WISH, SO TO SKIP THE LINE; EVERYTHING WILL BE DONE IN A FEW MINUTES**

We will visit the western part of Pompeii, where the most important public buildings, homes and shops are located.
Highlights: the Marina Gate, the Basilica (court house), the Forum (main square) with markets, temples and municipal buildings, the Stabian baths, the Lupanar (brothel), the bakery, the House of Menander, the theaters, the plaster casts and much more.

A Recent Review of this tour

WONDERFUL! We're a group of 8 historically knowledgeable adults. Anna knows history and how to weave a narrative that keeps you captivated and interested. I explained to her what was of particular interest to us so she tailored the visit. She is a lovely person and has delightful energy so that was a super bonus. Anna guided us at Pompeii and Herculaneum and she was very skilful at relating between the sights and choosing at which site to emphasize various topics. She's enthusiastic about guiding. GREAT!
