Full description
A walk in Pompeii is an experience unlike any other; the city still feels as lively as ever. Learn about the history of the town and how the Romans lived with a tour of all the most important public buildings and private houses. Herculaneum is much smaller but better preserved than Pompeii. While Pompeii was covered in 4 to 5 meters of ash, an avalanche of mud 20 meters thick buried Herculaneum. Second storeys, carbonized wooden objects, intact paintings and mosaics are still fully visible. The city comes back to life with your guide's explanations. The tour of Pompeii lasts 2 hours and includes a detailed look at the western part of the ancient town, the location of the most important public buildings, homes and shops.

We loved our private tour with Giulia. She was very knowledgeable, and engaging, and we loved her sense of humor. We learned so much more than what we would have learned if we had just toured Pompeii and the Herculaneum on our own. We also appreciated the clear and timely communication from the company and Giulia.

Wowza!! I’m so glad that I booked a private guide and toured these two wonderful sites off season. My guide was Michele. He was awesome and made the visit spectacular. We spent around five hours together exploring both sites and I really appreciated Michele’s thoroughness and knowledge of the subject matter. So happy to have gone with a guide vs try to figure it all out on my own.

Excellent visit! The Ilaria guide who accompanied me on the two sites for a private visit in French is very professional and does not count her time and does not hesitate to go over time to satisfy her client. Passionate about her profession and the historical period, she enriches the visit with interesting anecdotes. Thanks again to the agency for sending me this Ilaria guide.
