Step by Step

This private guided tour of Pompeii will take you on a timeless experience in the city that was frozen in the era of the Roman Empire after being buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

You will explore the archaeological site with a professional archaeological guide, who will reveal the secrets of the urban port metropolis that was uncovered after excavations were carried out more than two thousand years ago.

You will have the opportunity to visit emblematic sites of the place, among which the following stand out:

  • Amphitheatre: similar to the design of the Roman Coliseum, the site could hold approximately 20,000 Pompeians at its peak.
  • House of the Faun: experience what a typical villa was like by exploring this house, where a bronze sculpture of a faun was found preserved in excellent condition.
  • Villa of the Mysteries: you will have the opportunity to see the incredible frescoes of this 2nd century BC villa, beautiful works of art to which it owes its name.
  • Temple of Apollo: its records place it as the oldest building in Pompeii. Inside, several bronze statues of Apollo and Diana were found.
  • Temple of Jupiter: this structure was created around 250 BC in the centre of Pompeii as a cult to the Capitoline triad of the gods Jupiter, Mars and Janus.
  • Lupanar: known as the largest brothel in Pompeii, inside you will see impressive erotic art, which was immortalised on its walls.

You'll see one of the most beautiful postcards of southeastern Naples as Mount Vesuvius, the country's most iconic volcano, looms gigantically on the horizon of the ruins.

After the eruption, which also wiped out other cities such as Herculaneum, the region has been reclaimed at various times, leaving a historical footprint on the surface that reflects what life was like for the Romans in the 1st century.

You will see frescoes, works of art, houses, buildings and shops of the period, an essential trip to get to know the historical past of a destination declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco. As this is a private guided tour, only you and your group will participate.
