LivTours’ semi-private tour of Pompeii is the perfect way to explore this expansive UNESCO World Heritage Site. Exclusively explore the fascinating history of this Ancient Roman province that was destroyed by the eruption of nearby Mt Vesuvius.

Pompeii is one of Italy’s most well preserved archaeological sites, and was once one of the most important trade cities. It was completely destroyed by the sudden eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, which quickly buried the city under over 6 meters of ash. Pompeii was not re-discovered again until 1599. The site is still an active excavation area, with plenty left to uncover. Discover the story behind this ancient port town and the modern-day excavations which are helping to bring it back to life today.

Your semi-private tour of Pompeii starts with priority access into the site so you make the most of your time. Your guide very well could be an archaeologists, one of which who was part of the first excavation teams of the area. This gives you the chance to hear the most amazing anecdotes, discoveries, and stories about Pompeii.

Ancient Romans were forerunners of craftsmanship and engineering. You will have the pleasure of visiting the Roman baths and town’s water system, a first of its kind. In 79 AD, Pompeii residents were constructing stunning mosaics as decor for their homes as well as more practical commodities such as centrally heated public baths and saunas, making them ahead of their time.

As you walk through the Pompeii Forum, your guide will explain where residents lived and worked. This vibrant port town had its fair share of wealthy merchants who lavishly decorated their homes – your guide will make sure you get to see the best of them, as well as the two most popular attractions: the House of Sallust and the House of Julia Felix.

  • Excellent tour of Pompeii

    We had the best day touring Pompeii with Marianna. She was an amazing guide. We were able to learn so much from all the knowledge she had of the history and culture of the city. We will never forget this tour, and wished we had even more time.
