Discovering Ancient Pompeii
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Pompeii is considered one of the most fascinating archeological sites in the world. It is a haunting yet magical place where time has stood still following the devastating eruption of Mount Vesuvius - and you can see if for yourself. Through interactive, entertaining and educational commentary, your official expert guide will help you to understand how the Romans lived during this colorful era of history. There is something for everyone at Pompeii, from art to architecture and plenty of interesting stories to hear!
With our amazing Pompeii partnership, you will be given the unique chance to explore a recently-opened Domus. These were the homes of high-ranking ancient citizens, and they are still decorated with frescoes depicting the Roman gods, various animals and beautiful floral landscapes. Feel like a VIP for every moment of this tour, from your private transfer to your unique experience when you get there.
Be Back in Rome for an Aperitivo
You’ll have a short break for lunch and souvenir shopping before making your way back to the Eternal City, daydreaming of ancient ruins as you travel back in style. Arriving back in Rome you will find the city winding down for the day, the perfect time for a lovely aperitivo on a sunny Roman terrace while letting the memories of the day wash over you. Rome and Pompeii are both currently experiencing fewer visitors - this means there has never been a better time to plan a trip, to feel like the streets are yours and to let your imagination run wild unhindered by crowds of people all trying to do the same. It really is time to experience Italy extravagantly - just like a VIP!
