What to expect
  • Meet your private guide at the train station in Sorrento and begin this exciting day in Pompeii. Learn about the history of Pompeii from the knowledgeable guide during the 30-minute train ride.  Choose between a morning or an afternoon tour.  Once at the archaeological and historical site, which was buried under a volcanic eruption in 79 AD, head inside (at your own expense). Stroll the basalt-stone streets of this ancient Roman town which, ironically, is perfectly preserved. Learn about the daily life of the 20,000 Pompeii denizens, most of whom died from the eruption.  Walk past houses and shops, markets and spas. Explore the center, known as the Forum, with its casts of victims, and be sure to check out the Temple of Apollo and the public weighing scales. And be sure not to miss the bakeries and ‘fast food’ restaurants, where clay jars served ready-to-eat delights. And, of course, be sure to stop by the brothel, a favorite landmark in Pompeii.  After seeing the main sites, the tour finishes, but here you can choose to continue to explore on your own. Or can get the train back to Sorrento and enjoy the relaxing journey.  Family Tour Option: Have children with you? Choose the family option. It’s a fascinating history lesson for children and for adults alike. With your child specialist guide, your kids will receive a fun map of the ruins and can choose their own route through Pompeii, enjoying clues, puzzles, and games that bring the city back to vivid life. It’s an engaging way for them to learn about life and events here long ago.

    Pompeii Archaeological Park
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    You are going to take the local train with your private guide. This is the way local people would reach the archeological area of Pompeii. Skip-the-line tickets are included. Your knowledgeable guide will show the highlights of Pompeii: the Forum, the Bath-House, the shops and the streets, the fantastic private homes, and more! You are going to be introduced to the history of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius that buried Pompeii 2000 years ago. You will take great pictures of colorful wall-paintings and floor-mosaics. You will enter daily life in ancient Pompeii and discover how advanced Romans were! If you have children from 6 to 11 years old, we recommend the additional family option. The Pompeii for kids tour will make it both an entertaining and learning experience for all the family. You will still visit all the highlights of Pompeii, but this option also includes activities, games, a kid-friendly map with stickers, and a specifically trained tour guide.
