Our in-depth six-hour Pompeii and Herculaneum Tour is the closest you can come to experience what life was truly like for the Ancient Romans as you visit these world-renowned archaeological sites with your private guide.

Both were thriving towns before the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD brought destruction and devastation to the area leaving them preserved in layers of volcanic ash for nearly two thousand years. Now your private guide will walk through these streets with you as they bring to life the stories, pastimes, and culture of those people caught as if frozen in time in their last moments.

Pompeii & Herculaneum Tour Description

The first part of the tour will take place in Pompeii, you’ll visit the Roman Forum, baths, theatre, a brothel, and ancient shops. The tour provides the opportunity to peer into the lives of the ancient city’s inhabitants, as you visit their houses and the streets they walked along every day.

In fact, such was the level of preservation that in a select number of cases we have been able to determine the names, professions, and lifestyles of those who lived in these houses and worked in the shops that line the street.

Visit The Pompeii Bodies

Your guide will also take you to visit the famous ‘plaster cast’ bodies of its former citizens. Truly an experience that will live with you forever as you will be overcome with deep human empathy the casts which reveal with remarkable clarity the final moments of their lives as Vesuvius erupted.

Travel To Herculaneum

You will then be transported to Herculaneum in the comfort of one of our luxury vehicles.

Guided Tour of Herculaneum

Incredibly, Herculaneum is actually the better preserved of the two cities as it avoided the worst of the damage that befell Pompeii. This means you will have the opportunity to see houses that basically remain in their original form, complete with remnants such as furniture and household items to gain an even deeper understanding of life in that era.

On-site at Herculaneum, you’ll get the chance to see the stunning mosaics of the House of Neptune and Amphitrite, the gymnasium, the college of the Augustales, and many other interesting structures, including the boathouses where remains of the city’s inhabitants were found as they attempted to flee the eruption.

Why Choose Luxe To Guide You Around Pompeii & Herculaneum?

These locations are two of the best-preserved archeological sites to be found anywhere in the world, and to visit them without having a local guide to complete the narrative around the physical remains would only deny you access to the full power and weight of the experience.

This tour will help you gain a better understanding of how the ancient Romans truly lived: their dwelling places, what they ate, how they worked, and how they played. You’ll learn all about that fateful day in 79 AD when Vesuvius erupted, destroying cities but preserving for us a valuable means of learning about one of history’s most enduring civilizations.

Naturally, your private guide as an officially licensed expert will be more than happy to indulge your interests and answer any questions that you may have.
