Why take this tour

Pompeii tours and visits to the impressive Herculaneum are a must for every amateur archaeologist. Book with Askos Tours and you can see both in just one day. These magnificent sites are among the best-known excavations of the ancient world and on many people’s bucket list. They have long been a destination for tourists who have included them among stages of their European grand tour.

For your Pompeii and Herculaneum tours, you will meet with our staff at the main entrance of Pompeii. Our guides are all renowned for their friendliness, punctuality and ability to communicate clearly. Your guide on this tour will be an archaeologist experienced in presenting both sites in one day.

There is no need to queue as you will have priority entrance with tickets booked in advance. Once inside, following a short walk up a gentle slope from Porta Marina, you arrive at the city's Forum. This square had many functions. It served as a place of religious life, of cultural meetings, and markets where trade took place. From here you enter the interior to visit the best preserved houses, shops, and fabulous temples. Essential in all Pompeii tours is a stop at Lupanare, the famous house of sin and pleasure.

Pompeii seen and explored, you will take a short break for lunch.

Then, still with your guide, you board the Circumvesuviana train for the short ride to Herculaneum. A place of millennial beauty, and a more glamorous extension of nearby Pompeii, Herculaneum was a city resurrected from Vesuvius. Feel the privilege of entering the house of Neptune and Amphitrite and admire the stunning glass paste mosaic. Visit the fabulous House of the Deer, and many other extraordinary residences besides.
