Full description

Skip the lines to visit Pompeii at the best time of day, when the crowds and heat dissipate, with Alex, your local guide. Learn the city's ancient history from a native Pompeiian whose infectious love of his city helps you imagine what daily life was like for the ancient Romans.

Meet Alex at the Anfiteatro Gate before visiting the plaster casts of those who perished in the historical Mount Vesuvius volcanic eruption. Explore the daily life of these ancient locals and see how their traditions were perfectly preserved in volcanic ash. Discover former shops, fast food spots, and ancient bakeries.

Visit the gladiator amphitheater, which is 150 years older than the Coliseum. Marvel at the ancient frescoes and mosaics. Reach the Forum with its temples and main public buildings. Witness the sunset hitting the ruins as the ancient white columns are bathed in a warm orange hue.
