Why take this tour
A tour to Pompeii is a bucket list favourite and it’s likely to be a once in a lifetime experience. So it’s absolutely essential that you pick one which is right for you. With Askos tours, we guarantee you a day that you’ll never forget when you book our Pompeii tour.
A specialist archaeologist guide, selected from among the best in the sector, will accompany you throughout your tour of Pompeii. On arrival at the easy-to-find meeting point, your guide will issue you with your priority entrance tickets. Bought in advance, these will enable you to skip straight past those with envious eyes waiting in line.
We have put together an itinerary that is perfect for small groups of all ages and levels of fitness. Our archaeologist guides will reveal to you those little-known secrets and hidden spots. The large public buildings, temples and magnificent monuments will certainly impress, but you’ll also see decorations and graffiti others usually miss. Plus our guides have bags of tales and anecdotes of everyday life in Pompeii to amuse and intrigue you.
You’ll walk through the Forum, the centre of religious, cultural and business life, where the admirable Basilica stands. The Via dell’Abbondanza will show you just why the Romans got their reputation for building tremendous indestructible roads. And in the rich and elegant mansions, you’ll fall in love with Roman artwork. As you cross the threshold of the theatres, you will feel shivers down your spine. You’ll know you’re standing exactly where ancient Pompeiians let their hair down and laughed at the comedies of their day. And no visit would be complete without a peek into the Lupanare, the world’s oldest house of ill repute.
