Why You Shouldn’t Miss This

Deeply ingrained in myth and history, Pompeii dates back to nearly 2,000 years ago. An ancient site, the town was unearthed in 1748 AD after the infamous eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD. Over here you can revel in the ancient glory of the Campania region forever immortalized by the volcanic debris, standing as a true testament of nature’s infinite existence.

See ancient relics and ruins, as you immerse yourself in a historic journey; one that transcends the barrier of time. Spread over more than 50 hectares, Pompeii contains a remarkable volume of objects, art, and buildings. Your understanding of the ancient world is sure to change after you see how much we have in common with people who lived in the first century. From everyday objects to wine barrels, there’s a lot for you to see and discover on this tour.

Another important reason why you don’t want to miss out on this ticket, in particular, is the skip-the-line access. You can just zoom past the long ticketing queues and make your way directly into the archaeological site.

Your Experience

Should you choose optional transfers from Naples in the next step of the booking, your visit essentially starts with going to the Port of Naples to board your shuttle to Pompeii, a journey that takes around an hour. Upon arrival in Pompeii, first things first, stroll past the queues of people waiting and make your way into the attraction. Now, your adventure truly begins. With ancient ruins and age-old artifacts all around, and a skyline dominated by Mount Vesuvius, the visuals through this discovery are breathtaking.

Ideally, you want to spend around 4 hours here, there’s plenty for you to see. Walk around the Forum, visit the Basilica or relax under the shade of a tree near the amphitheater, it’s your call. There are numerous frescos and statues spread over the town along with 25 street fountains, 4 public baths and many business buildings which paints an almost real picture of the town in its hay day. As you stroll through the cobbled streets you’ll find yourself looking at everything with a sense of wonder and amazement. After all, you’re in a place that is frozen in the fabric of time.

Simply put: this is the stuff of legends! Words can’t describe this dramatic experience. But one thing we can tell you, you’re guaranteed to see breathtaking ruins, rich displays of Vesuvian art and incredible landscapes preserved by the volcano.
