An immersion in the world's best preserved archaeological areas - Skip-the-line included


Pompeii and Herculaneum's archaeological areas in one day, with me as your private guide!
We'll visit the best highlights in both towns, for a full immersion in Roman times!

This tour consists of a marvellous walk in Pompeii and Herculaneum, buried from the ashes of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 AD.

In Pompeii you'll feel like walking through a town that's still alive. You will discover how the Romans lived, observing all the most important public buildings and private houses.

Herculaneum is smaller, but very well preserved. When a 20-meter-thick avalanche of mud had buried the city, its two-storey houses, wooden objects, paintings and mosaics have come to us in a perfect form and still observable.

It's a great chanche: do not miss it!

A Recent Review of this tour

Anna was an amazing tour guide! She had an obvious passion and knowledge for the sites which made her so interesting to listen to. It was also great to talk to her about specific archeological questions that he had as she has actually worked on the site! Anna was careful to take our groups needs into consideration with the tour - speed of walking and specific interests. She was also so helpful in getting us our train tickets and getting us set up for a lunch break. We really enjoyed our time with Anna!
