Seeing Pompeii on your own can be confusing, so we have designed the 'Best of Pompeii Tour: Unveiling The Buried City' to bring you closer to the amazing history and tragic end of Pompeii than you could ever get on your own (or at least without a degree in archaeology). Led by an official Pompeii tour guide – most of whom are trained archaeologists – you will wander the well-preserved streets of Pompeii and visit the most interesting and heart-wrenching sights from the city that was lost under the massive eruption of Mt. Vesuvius.
Arrive at Pompeii and skip the lines meet one of our expert English-speaking guides. As you walk through the shops, temples, public baths, and houses that composed the thriving city, your guide will recount the fascinating stories of ancient life and how it was decimated by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius.See how people lived nearly 2,000 years ago with stops at a Roman bakery, the Temple of Apollo, the Roman Forum, an ancient supermarket, an old cemetery, and a theater. The tour will also visit the touching and eerie plaster death casts of a few of the unfortunate people caught in the eruption. If appropriate for the group, you’ll also step into an ancient brothel.The walk is capped off with a stroll along the city walls offering panoramic views of Naples and Capri.With a group of 15 people or fewer you won’t ever struggle to hear your guide, and you will have plenty of time and access to ask all the questions you’re going to have about ancient life in this incredibly well-preserved city.
