The Best of Pompeii Tour: Unveiling the Buried City

Get a whole new perspective on the ancient city and the disaster that destroyed it with this skip the line Pompeii tour.

If you tried to see all the highlights of Pompeii by yourself, you could spend days wandering the ruins and still miss a lot of them. When you go with an expert certified guide, one who has worked on these very ruins no less, the lost city comes alive with the stories and artifacts of the past.

Skipping the long entrance lines, you and your small group of 15 people or fewer will embark on a journey into the heart of an ancient Roman city, both destroyed and incredibly preserved by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in AD 79.

As your guide tells you the exciting and tragic story of the city's rise and fall, you'll visit all the most popular sites, like the stunning Roman Forum with its views of Mt. Vesuvius, ancient fast food restaurants, private villas, apartment buildings, temples, theaters, bath houses, and (if age appropriate) a brothel featuring risqué frescoes of the type of, ahem, services rendered.

You'll also visit the famous plaster death casts of people who were killed in the eruption that buried the city.

As you move through the site, your archaeologist guide will bring the old stones to life with stories about the people who used to live here, their lives, beliefs, and customs. You'll learn what they ate and drank, what they did for fun, and why, when Mt Vesuvius started to spray ash into the sky, they made no attempt to evacuate the city. With 5-star guides on your Pompeii tour, you will get a good grasp of history and gain the ability to interpret it into an almost familiar image.

There is no archaeological site in the world quite like Pompeii and there is no better way to enjoy such a tour of epic scope and detail.
