The ancient Roman city of Pompeii was founded in in the 6th or 7th century BC and flourished to more than 20,000 people with complex infrastructures in place before the city was engulfed in volcanic lava when nearby Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD.

Here's your chance to see the ruins of a city that laid the foundations for modern social life. Upon arrival to Pompeii your archeological guide will share interesting facts and stories about the city, the people and the culture as you walk through the city relics. Observe well-preserved thermal baths, the gymnasium, amphitheater, the House of the Faun and more. Inside Lupanar you will see frescoes and the beds used in the brothel.

Fantastic to see Pompeii but badly over crowded. sometimes I was listening to my guide while hearing the guide and his group or the guide in front. Our tour was cut short because of people who were late to catch the bus. Other that that our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable.

I had no real knowledge of Pompeikbefore this tour. Be prepared for a lot of walking through the ruins. It’s amazing to see such sophisticated systems in an archaic town. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and I really enjoyed this tour. If going in summer, make sure you bring a hat as the sun is quite hot and not a lot of shade at times.
