Antonio was amazing, he adjusted our tour to accommodate our needs. The experience was perfect and made us all feel more knowledgeable about Pompeii and daily Roman life. After we finished our time together we were able to explore on our own and use what we learned.

VIP tour of the ancient Roman city

Embark on an exclusive 3-hour guided tour of Pompeii, an ancient city with a history spanning thousands of years. This unique experience allows you to explore Pompeii as the gates open, ensuring a tranquil atmosphere. Limited to 12 participants, the tour offers an intimate experience. An expert archaeological guide, fluent in English, will accompany you, starting with the first rays of sunlight, revealing the history and culture of the Romans. Learn about the city's history, including the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. This volcanic eruption buried the city under a thick layer of ash and pumice, preserving it remarkably well for centuries.

Walk through Pompeii’s highlights

As you stroll towards Pompeii's House of Faun, discover one of the city's most remarkable private residences. Renowned for its grandeur, the House of Faun spans approximately 30,000 square feet, ranking among Pompeii's largest houses. Follow the Via dell’Abbondanza to access the Teatro Grande, Pompeii's most significant theater, dedicated to theatrical performances, musical events, and various public spectacles. But the true highlight of this tour is none other than the Villa of the Mysteries, where you can see the mysterious paintings on the walls depicting ancient ceremonies.
