Why take this tour

Enjoy a wonderful excursion to Pompeii and Herculaneum complete with an expert archaeologist guide with tickets included. This is an all-inclusive package which takes care of your transport, your entrance into the sites and your specialist guide. Your journey will begin outside Starhotel Terminus, in front of Naples Central Station, where you’ll meet your friendly driver. From there, you’ll be whisked to Pompeii in a comfortable minivan. Your tickets will be booked in advance which will enable you to skip the queue and head straight in!

You’ll enjoy a relaxed walk around Pompeii with your experienced, knowledgeable guide. You’ll visit the jewels of Pompeii - the Basilica, the Forum, the infamous Lupanare, the Theatres, Casa del Menandro and more! Hear the story of this remarkable city buried under layers of ash by the eruption of Vesuvius in AD79. And marvel at the famous plaster casts of the victims. There are intriguing tales of how this spectacular site was discovered just waiting to be heard.

After the exploration of Pompeii it’ll be time for a well-deserved break. You’ll have a chance to relax in the shade, away from the throngs of tourists and sip a cool drink.

And then on to Herculaneum! Of almost equal prestige and fame, Herculaneum is smaller, but better preserved than Pompeii! You’ll pause at the beach warehouses to cast your eyes over the skeletons of 300 victims. You’ll enter the charming Samnite House, visit the thermal baths, the bakery, and much more …

  • Pompeii & Hurculaneum small group

    I had a wonderful tour of Pompeii & Herculaneum with Diego our archeologist guide! Being a small group Diego was able to easily shift us around to avoid the large groups. Highly recommended.

  • Francesco + Paolo = a wonderful experience

    We had Francesco as a driver and Paolo (“the Rock”) as a guide. Both of them were truly unbelievable. Francesco is attentive and kind always asking whether everything is OK and he would do anything to ensure we are enjoying the tour. Paolo is such a great professional. During the stories about the excavation, he perfectly followed man’s mind. He was the most knowledgeable guide I´ve ever had. What I also really appreciated was his patience and approach to children. Even though it was really hot that day (41 C), the children paid attention and he very nicely keeped them focused by giving them questions and praise. We were lucky for both of those guys. Absolutely recommend.
