One of Italy’s best preserved archaeological sites, Pompeii is best seen with an expert tour guide. The city was an ancient Roman port town founded in 80 B.C., but a sudden eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. buried Pompeii under 6 meters of ash. Wiped completely off the map, the city was forgotten about until it was rediscovered in 1599.
This horrible incident, which froze daily life in action, allows us a glimpse into ancient Roman life. This private Pompeii tour is guided by an archaeologist, or an archaeology expert, who will paint a picture of the ancient city. They will bring to life images of the hustle and bustle that once filled the streets and buildings. Your private guide will show you the amazing mosaics and murals and walk you around the public baths, constructed with central heating and saunas.
The archaeological area of Pompeii has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1997. Many of our exclusive tour guides are archeologists, and they are ready to share amazing anecdotes, discoveries and stories about Pompeii and the surrounding historical areas.
When you have satisfied your hungry minds your private chauffeur will be ready with the car to take you back to your cruise ship in Naples.
