    Pompeii Archaeological Park
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    See Pompeii’s ancient piazza and Forum, where business dealings, elections, speeches and processions would have played out during Roman times. Wander the site, marvel at the ancient limestone columns still standing today and capture the centuries-old scenery on camera. Continue onward with your guide to the thermal baths, where many of the townsfolk would have bathed, chatted and lived out their daily lives before the eruption. Wander down Via degli Augustali and discover the Lupanare, Pompeii’s brothel. A 2-storey building with five rooms on each floor, the Lupanare is decorated with some of the city’s most lustful frescoes. Your exact route will depend on the crowds and weather conditions.

Highlights
  • Priority access and morning entry helps beat the crowds at Pompeii
  • Listen as your guide recreates Roman-era Pompeii life before the eruption
  • Round-trip transportation from Naples hotel eliminates the hassle of driving
  • Half-day tour of Pompeii allows for exploring Naples in the afternoon
What to Expect
Start with convenient pickup at your Naples hotel. This half-day tour’s early departure means you are one of the first to enter Pompeii, and you return to Naples with time for exploration. Meet your guide and minibus, from which you take in the scenery while your guide handles the driving. After a short drive, disembark for priority entry into the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Learn about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, which spewed ash and trapped people and buildings under tons of volcanic debris. Your guide takes you through the preserved piazza, baths, houses, and streets to learn about life in this prosperous Roman-era city. The tour’s exact route depends on the crowd and weather, but expect to see highlights such as the luxury residence Casa Vetti, Lupanare, Pompeii’s brothel, thermal baths, Forum, and Via degli Augustali. Your tour ends with stress-free drop-off at your Naples hotel.

Our guide was local and very knowledgeable. He claimed to be active in the archeology field there and, based on his through explanations, I'm sure this was the case. (We have been on other tours elsewhere where the guide was only leading us around. This was not the case here.)

Francesca was very good in explaining and showing the Pompeii ruins. She was funny and easy to follow. She also gave us food tips for dining in Naples and dropped us off close to the best Pizza place. We had a wonderful lunch with a beautiful view of the ocean thanks to her.
