Private Day Tour to visit Pompeii and Herculaneum to appreciate the best of these two important archaelological sites of the Gulf of Naples with your private driver and skip-the-line tickets are included to allow you to avoid long lines.

Pompeii and Herculaneum Private Tour from Naples starts in the morning from your hotel or at disembark from your cruise ship in Naples where meet your driver for your private day tour of Pompeii and Herculaneum.

In Pompeii your private expert guide will take in a 2 hours private walking tour around the “scavi” and will recount the historical facts of this important roman town destroyed and buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in the morning of the August 24th 79 A D.

Once in Pompeii you have time for a walking tour around the “scavi” to visit of this important city destroyed and buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in the morning of the August 24th 79 A D.
When Mt. Vesuvius erupted in the year 79 A.D., it covered Pompeii and Herculaneum with stone and volcanic mud, the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum remained covered until the 18th century, when a farmer discovered some ruins, then certified as the ruins of Pompeii while digging in his vineyards.

The ruins of Pompeii, thanks to the volcanic ash, are exceptionally well preserved and offer visitors a true understanding of what life was like during the Roman Empire.

The most important highlights: the Forum that was the center of religious and economic life. The Casa del Fauno, one of the largest, and most impressive private residences in Pompeii. The Termopolium a sort of ancient inns where the foreigners arrived in Pompeii could eat and buy wine. The plaster body casts of the inhabitants of Pompeii victims of volcanic ash and gas. The Pompeii wall paintings and the frescoes.
The eruption preserved exactly how it was this important town of about 20.000 inhabitants completely covered in 30 feet of volcanic ash.

Visiting Pompeii you can see the theaters, the temples, the private villas of the rich with their exquisite frescoes and the quarters of the servants, the wine shops, the bakeries and the public baths.

After a pause for a light lunch (payable locally) reach the remains of Roman “Herculaneum” that lie within the area of modern Ercolano, north of Pompeii and south of Naples. 

The ruins at Herculaneum are well preserved and much smaller than those at Pompeii, so in a tour of 2 hours with your private guide it is very possible to walk through the entire excavation and see all the highlights.

In the contrast to the mostly single-story buildings of Pompeii, in Herculaneum the private houses and public buildings were with two or even three floors with a great use of wood in doors, staircases, beams and shutters.

We suggest wearing comfortable walking shoes.
