Tour description provided by Viator

Embark on a guided walking tour of the ruins of Pompeii and discover the fascinating remnants of this ancient Roman city that was destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. This massive archaeological site is a well-preserved look back in time that boasts impressive artifacts and architecture. 
No matter how much research you have done, it will be not easy to visit the archaeological site by yourself. Pompeii is like a labyrinth and it’s very easy to get lost even with a map. So if you are planning to visit the ruins, the best way is to join a walking tour with an official tour guide.The walking tour consists of a guided tour, shared with other participants (maximum of 25 people). The local English speaking guide will take you into the daily life of an average Roman town of 2000 years ago.After meeting your guide, head into the ruins of Pompeii, as you listen to the engrossing narrative of how this once thriving city was destroyed in an instant from the massive amounts of volcanic ash and pumice that erupted from the nearby volcano. Walk through the Porta Marina, one of the city's original entrances as you learn how this place was rediscovered in 1748, and how it has been in a continual state of restoration ever since.Highlights of the visit: the Forum, the baths, the temples of Apollo, Jupiter and Isis, the Lupanare (brothel), the frescoes and mosaics, the bakeries and of course the body casts.Please note: This tour does not include entrance fees to the excavations.
