Pompeii & Herculaneum Shore Excursion with Archaeologist

1. Pompeii & Herculaneum Shore Excursion with Archaeologist

Experience an unforgettable shore excursion from Naples including a group tour in Pompeii and Herculaneum led by an expert Archaeologist guide. See the major highlights. First, get picked up from Naples Central Station. Enjoy a comfortable transfer to Pompeii in a modern minivan with a maximum of 8 people. When you arrive, benefit from skip-the-line entry and then take a pleasant walk around the ancient Roman city. Learn about how the area was buried by the volcanic ashes of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.  As you walk, learn about the history of the town and how the Romans lived. See all the most important public buildings and private houses on a 2-hour walk. Highlights include the Marina Gate, the Basilica, the Forum, the Forum Baths, the Lupanar (brothel), the Bakery, the House of Faun, the Termopolium Capuano, the House of Tragic Poet, and the plaster casts. Then, after a 1-hour lunch in downtown Pompeii, the driver will pick you up and transfer you to Herculaneum for another 2-hour guided tour. Once again, enter with skip-the-line tickets, and see how Herculaneum is much smaller but better preserved than Pompeii. See how whilst Pompeii was covered by 4 to 5 meters of ashes, Herculaneum was buried under a landslide of 20-meter deep mud. During the tour, discover carbonized wooden objects, intact paintings, and mosaics which are still preserved. Highlights include the Temple of the Augustali, the beach where more than 300 skeletons were found, the Thermal Baths, the Forum, the House of Neptune and Amphitrite, the Samnite House, the Gymnasium, the House of the Dears, and much more. Finally, get dropped off back at the train station in time for your onward departure.

What people are saying about Porta Marina, Pompeii, Italy

The tour is exactly what you are looking for. The tour guide was very knowledgable, the driver was excellent and prompt. Although if you're hoping to see every corner of Pompei, I would recommend booking separate tours to stay in the site longer. But I will say that Herculaneum is as beautiful and impressive (if not more) than Pompei. Overall, I highly recommend this tour.

Vincezo is a superstar and a comedian in desguise! We are so glad that we were with him the whole day in Pompei and Herculaneum, learnt so much about the history, architecture, art and traditions from him. You rock Vincezo!

Fantastic tour. Really fascinating places to visit and Michele the guide was full of knowledge and experience. The day flew by so quickly we were all so engrossed. Very highly recommended and excellent value for money.

I liked it a lot, punctual, friendly, very well organized for such a visited place. There is not much time to see the cities but I understand that it is to be able to see both. Amazing experience.

Amazing tour guide! Funny and full of information. I think the tour was well paced and we saw a lot without feeling rushed. Would 100% recommend!
