Skip the Line Pompeii Tickets
As one of the most intriguing sites in southern Italy, Pompeii can get pretty crowded. Luckily for you, we offer skip the line tickets with an expert archaeologist guide to lead you through the incredible ruins of the city. Meet your guide at the designated meeting spot on your voucher and off you go.
A City Frozen in Time
In 79 A.D. the flourishing city of Pompeii was changed forever due to a catastrophic volcanic eruption. The city, defined by its large amphitheater, artisan community and even brothels, was destroyed in an instant by the wrath of Mount Vesuvius. Despite what you may think, the volcanic eruption may have destroyed the city, but also preserved it.
Almost 2,000 years later, a team of archaeologists discovered artifacts and even bodies frozen by the tragic eruption’s volcanic ash. Follow your guide to explore the remnants left behind by the catastrophe, giving life to the lost city. You will understand what life was like before, during and after the timeless disaster.
Villa of Mysteries
After your guided tour of the ruins of Pompeii, head over to Villa di Misteri. You'll be hard-pressed to find a Pompeii tour that also visits the Villa of Mysteries. Why? We like to call this ancient house a hidden gem of the area. As archeological and historical experts, it's our mission to take you to some of Pompeii's untouched phenomena.
Once you arrive at the villa, you'll notice that it survived the 79 A.D. eruption shockingly well. Your guide will point out the frescoes that had been buried underneath volcanic ash for years. You might be surprised to find out exactly what the frescoes are thought to depict!
After your guided tour, it’s time to say arrivederci to your group and guide. Feel free to keep exploring the ruins on your own, though! While this tour does not include transportation to and from Rome, you can easily join our Day Trip from Rome to Pompeii, which does offer luxury transportation to Pompeii.

We were staying in Sorrento and really wanted to see Pompeii. I was considering an expensive tour that included transportation. The Roman Guy (who helped with our whole trip and are amazing) helped to navigate the trains for us and gave us peace of mind. We met for the tour and the guide was great, I can't believe that whole houses were preserved. I had no clue. Pompeii is so cool!
Best tour we did!
We did lots of tours on our family vacation through Viator and other companies. Tour Guy was the best! Very interesting Pompeii tour and learned sooo much about the city. Had no idea how interesting this place was & can't wait to return!
I had no idea how cool Pompeii would be. My husband said he wanted to go there while we were traveling through the Amalfi Coast and I am so glad we ended up going. The bodies frozen from the eruption were insanely cool!!!
