Explore the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum as part of a private group in the company of a professional archaeologist guide.

You'll start the tour in Pompeii where your guide will take you around the eastern part of the city.

Your specialist guide will tell you all about Ancient Romans' way of life, their customs and the principle buildings in this part of the city. You'll get to see the Basilica, the forum, the thermal baths, the Termopolia, a fast food establishment, the Lupanar, a famous brothel along with numerous other ruins.

After your visit to Pompeii, you'll head off to Herculaneum, which is a bit further north. You'll visit the forum, the thermal baths, the temple of Augustali, the house of Neptune and Amphitrite, the beach where many victims were discovered and plenty of other ruins. While Pompeii was buried under 4 metres of ash, Herculaneum was covered by 20 metres of ash and mud. This means that although Herculaneum is smaller, it's far better preserved. You'll be able to admire this archaeological site's intact mosaics and paintings.

Get a feel for Ancient Roman life with this fascinating private guided tour.
