Perhaps the most famous archeological site in the world, visiting Pompeii on a private guided tour is an unforgettable experience that is equally captivating and deeply poignant at the same time.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Pompeii is an entire city that was preserved under volcanic ash when the nearby Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79AD. On your guided tour you will discover what life was like for the Roman citizens of the era, you’ll get to explore the buildings, art and culture of the time, and of course the famous plaster cast forms of those who remained trapped in the city when the volcano erupted.

As we are officially licensed guides, you will benefit from skip the line access to all sites and locations visited on your Pompeii guided tour.

Pompeii Guided Tour Description

Your guide will first set the scene for you by sharing stories and tales that reveal the status Pompeii enjoyed at the time as a typical working town, home to both wealthy and poor alike. Indeed, the remains are so well preserved that we can even tell what kind of lifestyle the residents there had. From the refined elegance of the villas of the wealthy to the more humble dwellings of soldiers, slaves, and prostitutes (don’t worry, we can make the tour kid-friendly if you wish!).

Exploring The Roman Forum In Pompeii

Before the town was wiped out, this would have been the beating heart of Pompeii. A place where business was conducted, markets and stalls were laid out and political discussions and debates were held.

Your private guide will be on hand to paint a vivid picture of bustling town life back in ancient Rome. Nearby the forum you will see the roman baths that you can enter to see how innovative they were for the time.

Discover The Amphitheatre

Naturally, when we think of Gladiators we think of the Colosseum (or perhaps Russell Crowe) but did you know that the amphitheater in Pompeii hosted gladiator bouts and is actually the oldest surviving theatre of its kind?

Visit One of Pompeii’s Ancient Brothels

Thankfully not operational for nearly two thousand years, here you can still see the original and quite explicit wall paintings and decor that let you know exactly what services were provided!

Enter Typical Homes & Villas

What better way to understand how people used to live than to access their homes and villas. Some of the villas are so well preserved that you can still see the original furniture, decorations, frescos, and household objects that people had before disaster struck.

The Plaster Cast Bodies of Pompeii

Perhaps the most famous location on-site to see the plaster cast bodies is in the Garden of the Fugitives, but they are exhibited throughout the ruins. The casts were created by pouring plaster into the voids that were left when the bodies decayed after being encased in volcanic ash.

These models are deeply moving and elicit an undeniably empathetic response as the casts capture the form, posture, and in some cases even the clothing of those who were unfortunate enough to remain trapped in Pompeii when Vesuvius erupted.
