You will meet your guide at the designated meeting point. Walk past the long queues and enter the site with your skip-the-line ticket.

Visit the excavation site which was buried under volcanic debris for over 1600 years. Pompeii was a well-developed Roman city which had a huge theatre that held gladiatorial fights, temples of worship, luxurious Roman villas decorated with brightly painted frescoes and marvelous mosaics and highly mechanised waterway systems.

The guide will walk you through the shops, temples, public baths and houses that composed the thriving city, s/he will recount the fascinating stories of ancient life and how it was decimated by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius.
