Full description of the tour

A Private tour to Pompeii and Herculaneum for a memorable trip from Rome

Pompeii is a buried and ruined Roman city near modern Naples in the Italian region of Campania, in the territory of the commune of Pompeii. It, along with Herculaneum (its sister city), was destroyed, and consequently buried during a catastrophic eruption of the volcano, Mount Vesuvius spanning two days on August 24, 79 AD.
The volcano collapsed higher roof-lines, and buried Pompeii under many meters of ash and pumice. It was lost for nearly 1,700 years before its accidental rediscovery in 1748. Since then, its excavation has provided an extraordinarily detailed insight into the life of a city at the height of the Roman Empire. Today, it is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Italy and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Another location you’ll visit is Herculaneum, an ancient Roman town, located in the territory of the current commune of Ercolano. It is most famous for having been lost, along with Pompeii, in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Since the discovery of bones in 1981, some 150 skeletons have been found. Herculaneum was a smaller town, with a wealthier population than Pompeii at the time of its destruction.

Our English-speaking tour driver will be happy to suggest some local, typical restaurants in that area. After lunch, your English-speaking tour driver will drive you back to Rome.

*Upon request, an official archeologist E.S. guide can be provided for Pompeii and Herculaneum.
Certainly with a private guided tour exclusively for you and your group makes the difference.
