Private Tour: 2-Hour Pompeii Tour from Sorrento
US$175.80
Overview
Get a more in-depth understanding of a famous ancient Roman city with a private 2-hour tour of Pompeii from Sorrento. Explore the archaeological site with your own private expert guide to help you make sense of the ruins. Walk past houses and baths, through temples and the forum – you can even visit the ancient brothel. Contemplate the plaster casts of victims of the volcanic eruption, on display at the site.
What to Expect
Your tour to Pompeii starts in Sorrento, (whereas the 2 hour tour time begins at entry at the archaeological site) you'll meet your private English-speaking guide and take the local train, 30 min. (Circumvesuviana train line; ticket at your own expense) to the ancient Roman town.  Visit Pompeii highlights, such as the Forum, the Public Bathouse, the Lupanare (Brothel), the Vettii's House, the Fauno’s Villa, the Granaries, the Greek Theatre, Mosaics, shops and much mroe. Explore the history and the geology of Mount Vesuvius. Learn about Pompeii’s art, it’s people, it’s commerce, it’s history, it’s vice.

By booking this tour, you'll enjoy the full attention and insights of a licensed professional tour guide, English mothertongue speaking, who has a solid background in and knowledge of Pompeii's history, politics, daily life and social backdrop related to the main events in the village 2,000 years ago. When you arrive, see some of the major archaeological ruins such as the public baths, Roman villas, temples and the brothel (the Lupanare), and imagine what life was like here before the volcanic eruption that buried the town in ash.

Please note: Pompeii entrance ticket is not included in the price of the tour.

One of the finest tours we've ever experienced.

Pompeii has the finest preserved frescos in the world, due to the preservation from being covered in ash and then 1600 years of nature reclamation. We only had 3 hours to tour; when we will come back, we will spend 3 days!!
