EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

STEP BACK IN TIME AT POMPEII ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE.

There’s no better place in Italy to experience life as an ancient Roman than at Pompeii. And the best way to experience Pompeii? With an expert Walks of Italy tour guide! That's not just because your guide brings the sights to life with spine- tingling tales from Pompeii's past. It's also because the site is huge, while signs on the ruins are old, hard to read, and usually with only dull, cursory information.

GET THE MOST FROM YOUR VISIT, UNDERSTANDING THE SIGHTS BEFORE YOU.

Experience Pompeii without the stress of following a map and trying to decipher ruins by yourself. With an expert archaeologist on hand, you'll be taken right to the coolest sights Pompeii has to offer and truly understand what they are.

You’ll see all of the most popular sites, including a Roman bakery and the Roman Forum. You’ll learn what Ancient Romans ate and drank, what they did for fun and the sad, misguided beliefs they held about the cause for those ground tremors they felt before the eruption, or the frequent clouds of ash from the nearby Mt. Vesuvius.

Of course you’ll visit what, for many visitors, is the highlight of their Pompeii tour – the world-famous plaster casts of those killed in the eruption; eerie and moving glimpses of what it must have been like to experience Armageddon.

We recently extended our Pompeii tour to include one of Pompeii's beautiful theaters, which are amazing well-preserved so you can easily imagine what it was like to watch a performance here in summer, on a warm Italian evening.

POMPEII GUIDES HAND CHOSEN FOR THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND FRIENDLINESS.

Tour operators are required to use official Pompeii tour guides at the archaeological ruins. We’ve chosen only the best of the bunch to work with, hand-picking guides with passion and knowledge, not to mention the storytelling skills required to bring this incredible city to life for you. As on all our tours, we only work with the best 5- star guides, because we understand that they’re the most important element of any tour. So when you walk with Walks, you can trust that you’re getting the best.

If you take a guided tour on only one stop of your Italy vacation, make it Pompeii. With the power to entrance and delight, Pompeii is a hieroglyphic of a site, needing an expert touch to translate. But in the hands of the right archaeologist, it truly comes to life as a living, breathing city.

We had been told that it might have been better to go to Ercolano but are delighted we did the walk with. Brunella. She is so knowledgeable and enthusiastic and brought it all to life. We would recommend her to anyone.
Eliana was an excellent guide. She demonstrated her in-depth understanding of Roman life and also the consequences of the eruption for the city. Her English and her temperament are excellent. She exudes enthusiasm and is very open to questions, and answers them.
Excellent tour. We would use walks of italy again.

Loved our tour guide and the tour! She was a fund of knowledge about Pompeii and a very nice person. Lots of fun. I only regret that the ear pieces that we were supposed to use did not work, so we had to stay close to hear everything. Apart from that, it was excellent. Thank you!
Our guide was fantasic! She had a lot of knowledge about Pompeji and walking through the City together her you felt you almost was present at Pompeji when it existed.

The guide was round the corner from the notified meeting point - luckily I checked. Great tour by Ilaria.
We loved this tour - Paolo's knowledge was amazing and he was excellent at choosing the most interesting and relevant stories. I'm sure there were hundreds more that we didn't get to hear. Gracie!!
Pompeii was one of my favorite places on my Italy vacation, and the tour was great. I liked the route and all of the interesting information. I would stay another day in Pompeii for sure.
Great Tour. In hindsight I would have allowed myself more time to explore on my own after the tour. But would recommend
Again - nothing but great.
My boyfriend and I had a great time with our guide! We would definitely recommend this tour for anyone wanting to explore and learn some history about the ruins of Pompeii
Really enjoyed Paolo's commentary and the choice of sites he took us to in the limited time.
Loved the expertise and knowledge of our tour guide.
Our guide (Francesca?) was excellent - entertaining, very well-informed, happy to answer questions.
Another great tour. I would recommend Walks of Italy to others.
A fabulous tour, so glad I booked it.
Rossella introduced us to Ilaria, who was our guide for the Pompeii tour. Illaria was excellent - her knowledge and ability to communicate were faultless. She really brought the ancient city to life and as a result we were more engaged and learnt a lot more than had we visited Pompeii on our own.
The tour was great and our guide was full of information. Great experience.
Excellent tour, very informative. So very much to see it was wonderful to have some guidance.

we really enjoyed our tour last week with Paulo & found him to be very knowledgeable & approachable
Excellence and only too pleased to assist or help with queries. Very patient. Great guide
I have studied Pompeii for many years and the guide still managed to teach me a few things I didn't know before. She was engaging, experienced and able to answer every question asked. I would do it again in a heartbeat! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Such a beautiful area of Italy. The back drop of Mount Vesuvius was an eerie feeling but the tour gave you sense of what it was like at the time of the eruption. Our guide, Serena, did a great job explaining the structures at the location. You can't go wrong with this tour.
Best tour of Pompeii thus far ! Great guide.
Great tour and guide. A Little hard to understand. Had to concentrate a lot.
We went on many tours while in Italy, and by far the Walks of Italy were the best! Thank-you!
Great trip. Wish we had more time to view the artifacts. Our tour guide was informative, adaptive, flexible, fun and a great rep for your company.
Amazing tour. Brought Pompeii to life. A targeted approach to that vast site was definitely the best way to go. Eliana was knowledgeable, interesting and a great guide.
Fascinating tour of Pompeii! Francesca was an excellent and extremely knowledgeable guide. I would highly recommend this tour.
very friendly and knowledgeable! did a great job!
Good English, very informative, not too long or too short (good length), smaller group, saw newly opened part of the ruins. Would definitely recommend.
Our guide was wonderful! She was full of interesting information and helped us feel welcome to ask any questions.
Paolo gave us an excellent tour with amazing insites on the life of the residents of Pompeii. We were limited by a rain storm, but enjoyed our shortened tour greatly.
Our guide, Carmen, was amazing. We had a fabulous tour, one of the best we have done whilst traveling. Thank you so much.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour of Pompeii... the guide was excellent and really painted a picture of what life in Pompeii would have been like... I rushed home and watched the movie- would definitely recommend!!
The guide had really interesting way of describing the old way of living in Pompei and there were excellent devices that enabled us to hear everything she said.
We thought the guide was extremely knowledgeable and communicated all the information in an interesting way.
Lovely lady. Informative and funny.
Great tour! We learnt so much about Pompeii, the history of the city, the people the lived there and the day to day activities of the city. I would recommend this tour to anyone traveling to Pompeii. Our guide was fantastic, very knowledgable and helpful when we had questions.
Anna was excellent, knowledgeable and funny. She helped take us back in time. Many thanks.
The tour was fascinating and the tour guide was brilliant. She pretended to be a wife of a business man taking merchants around the city which was enjoyable and really allowed the place to open up etc. she was so enthusiastic about it all it was great even if it rained.
Francesca was great! She really gave a view of what life would have been like in Pompeii in an informative and enjoyable way. This was our 4th tour with Walks of Italy, and we recommend you to others.
The guide was professional and knowledgeable.
Ilaria was fantastic! Her love for archeology and dedication to Pompeii shines through. The ruins would have been overwhelming without a guide to help interpret them for us, and keep us directed. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and patient. :) I highly recommend this tour.
Our tour was very good and our tour guide was very informative. She was so pleasant and full of so much information. We really enjoyed the tour and found the tour guide to be excellent.
Our guide was really knowledgeable and obviously passionate about the history of Pompeii
Paolo our guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable! His english was excellent and vocabulary very extensive which made the tour even better. Five stars!
Anna was a great tour guide. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour with her. At time it was a bit hard to hear through the microphone but other than that it was excellent. We wish we had more time to spend in Pompeii but we had booked the tour to Mt. Vesuvius.
Great your guide, learned alot.
The guide was great. The audio system was a bit unclear or muffled and could be better. Could I suggest a starting time at about 10:10, to allowfor the train coming from Napoli Central.

Amazing! The guide was very knowledgable and easy to understand. I like the stories that explained and brought us back to the ancient Pompeii!
Well informed guide.

Iliaria was great! Great personality! You could tell she was passionate about her job
Our guide was excellent, would definitely recommend
I enjoyed the tour, it was very interesting and the guide was enthusiastic and told us a lot of information about Pompeii
Excellent tour. We learned so much. Ilaria is clearly passionate about Pompeii.
Nancy our guide was very knowledgeable - excellent walking tour - thanks
Francesca was informative, knowledgeable and fun. Couldn't have asked for a better guide to Pompeii.
Francesca was a wonderful tour guide and we learned so much about Pompeii that was unexpected. Definitely a wonderful day and a great tour!
Highly recommend. We were running late and communication was excellent and they were able to wait for us. The guide was knowledgeable and engaging in telling the story. Would use Walks tours again.
We thoroughly enjoyed Francesca's commentary and in depth knowledge of the area.
Maybe make it clearer that there is no where to store luggage. Three Australians had luggage with them but fortunately we had a car so they were able to store them.
Ilaria was very knowledgeable and passionate about Pompeii and the history. Great tour and lot of information. Loved it!
One of the best tours I've had in Italy, Hilary was extremely knowledgable and made tour fun. I can't recommend this tour and tour guide highly enough!!
We found our guide well informed and she spoke very clear English. The tour was just the right length of time due to the heat, although we did have to rush at times to get through it.
Guide was brilliant, very informative and interesting and clear. Great tour.
Nancy was an excellent guide. Very informative and very good sense of humour.
Excellent guide (Francesca). It was VERY hot which made the walk a challenge but it was always fascinating...well done
Hillary was great! We enjoyed the beauty of the ruins and Hillary had so many interesting facts and stories :) She kept us moving and out of the crowds which was greatly appreciated as it was extremely hot. Even with the heat, this was our favorite of all the tours we took.
I don't remember our guide's name, but she was wonderful! She interacted well with the group, was fun, engaging, and very informative. I really enjoyed the tour and her expertise of the area. I enjoyed this tour.
The walk was very informative and our guide was knowledgeable and her English was excellent! My only (small) complaint is that we were a bit hurried and if we stopped to take photos, we tended to get separated from the group. Very glad that we visited Pompeii with "Walks"!
Excellent tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable.
Eliana was great! Got us in past the long lines. There were only 4 in our group so she took time to answer all our questions. Showed us all the major sites I wanted to see. 2 and 1/2 hours was about right for us. Really enjoyed the tour.
Enjoyed the tour immensely. Francesca was an excellent guide and the audio equipment was invaluable given the numbers of people who are on the site. It's not cheap, but it's well organised and there's no waiting, queuing or aimless wandering which is a godsend.
The tour to Pompei under the guidance of Franceska was superb and thank you. Nevertheless, you have churged me in dollars although I made the reservation from Europe. Why? With Kind Regards, Prof. Vasileios Stavrinos
This was an excellent way to tour Pompeii and our guide was perfect. She was personable and informative (and spoke amazing English - thank you!)
We took a private tour so we could go at our own base since two in our group have mobility issues. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and was very helpful and accommodating. We recommend this tour!
We loved our tour. Francesca was friendly and knowledgeable and we particularly appreciated her ability to include our young children (5 and 8) while sharing her knowledge wtih the adult tour members. We were very happy with our experience.
Francesca was an excellent guide. She was very knowledgeable and interesting. The tour of Pompeii was quite thorough.
Guide was very good
Hi, we very much enjoyed our tour with Serena - she made it come to life and answered all our questions. We had to move our tour from Friday to Saturday because of a train strike and were very impressed by how efficiently this was sorted out for us. Thanks very much.
Serena was wonderful. She was on-time and was enthusiastic. We enjoyed her and the tour very much.
I had a great time and she made the tour extra special. I would highly recommend this tour.
Wow! What can I say! Serena was outstanding. This is the first time I've done a tour in any of my travels to Europe. Was a little skeptical about it, but it was great. She is very knowledgeable and nice. Will do it again when we return to Italy ! Thx again Todd.
Francesca was wonderful.....an excellent tour and guide
Anna was wonderful! She was extremely knowledgeable and energetic! I liked the way she "put us in the time frame" and personalized our experience! I definitely recommend the tour!
Our guide was wonderful! She was friendly and extremely knowledgeable, and we appreciate her answering all of our questions!!

It was an absolutely fascinating tour, our guide Brunella took our group to the highlights with such an informed and detailed commentary that only an expert in the field could provide. She was a wonderful, patient and very client focussed guide. We could never have had the same level of information and experience of this enormous archaeological site if we had not opted for a guided tour, and we were so thankful we had opted to book on a guided tour. While our tour took approximately three hours overall, we really only saw the highlights, as there is so much to see in such a large area, and I would love to return to see more! I will be recommending Walks of Italy for certain. Thank you!

When we booked 3 different "Walks" you should at least offer the discount that you offer in the follow.up email that you send out at the time of order! We are very satisfied with the tour and guides in all three of our events.
Excellent tour. Ilaria had a lot of information atio to share. Well done
We had a fantastic three hour tour and were so pleased that we had booked it. The group size was 12 which was perfect. Our guide, Paolo, was fantastic. He brought Pompeii to life for us and catered for both the adults and the children in equal measure. He showed us all the details that demonstrated that a thriving community had once been there and included lots of stories that have been pieced together during the excavation of the city. We all came away feeling enriched and full of knowledge that we could draw on when we visited Herculaneum, Vesuvius and the museum in Naples. Thank you!

It was well organised and you accommodated us changing dates. Francesca had lots of interesting facts and was friendly.
Pablo was an EXCELLENT tour guide. We learned so much from him and his passion for Pompeii was contagious!
Again, Roberto was an excellent, informative guide who led us round at a pace which meant we could take in what we were seeing, rather than hurrying us on to the next thing. Just one suggestion: could a map be included in the cost? We were shown the approximate route we would be taking, on his map, but when he left us at the end with the option of returning with him to the entrance or carrying on exploring we had no idea of where anything else was, so although we wandered round for a bit it wasn't very productive. Just a thought!
Anna was great - she told us stories that really painted an image of what Pompeii was like in its heyday. She was also very mindful of the crowds, always thinking ahead of where we could go next to avoid big crowds. Her pace was easy and her stories cute. We left the ruins of Pompeii with a real reverence for how powerful and progressive the Roman empire and its people was. Thank you, Anna!
Our guide Paolo was amazing. In addition to an extensive knowledge and a very obvious devotion to the subject, he possessed a great improvisational talent that we would compare with a skilled jazz musician. No empty routines here, but a vibrant and responsive way of telling this exciting story. The 3 super interesting hours seemed to disappear just too fast! A good sense of humour, a dialogue based and relaxed contact with the group - not to speak of a perfect English - only made this guided tour even more sublime! It was a fantastic way to experience Pompeii, and we felt great inspiration to continue on our own after having said goodbye and thanks to Paolo. Hanne & Jesper, Denmark.
This tour was great! Our guide was very knowledgable and we loved the tour.
Great Guide, very knowledgeable.
All our Walks guides and tours were extremely professional and we informed. I would highly recommend your tours to anyone.

Roberto was an excellent, very knowledgeable guide. A great experience.
Fabulous tour with a extremely knowledgeable guide. Pompeii simply stunning. This was our fifth walks of Italy tour in the past 10 months, as always they delivered phenomenal product and experience. Easy access to the site and guides with in-depth knowledge of what you’re seeing make for simply unforgettable to her. Our guide was particularly knowledgeable about Pompeii as she spends the winter as an archaeologist working on-site...added a wonderful depth of knowledge to the tour (a hallmark of all our WOI tours so far). I highly recommend this to her or anyone wishing to see Pompeii.

Loved the tour! Guide was extremely knowledgeable and we couldn't have seen or learned that much in 3 hours by ourselves!
(No comment)
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and articulate, giving us a wonderful introduction to life in Pompeii, with back-stories to enhance the factual details. The three hours went very quickly as we visited the major sights. I would recommend this tour to all ages, with the warning that the walk is on very uneven and hard surfaces.

Love the character role play of a wealthy Pompeii wife!
Ilaria spoke perfect English and was thoroughly engaging throughout the tour. We really enjoyed it!
The tour was fantastic and our guide, Ilaria, was amazing. She was engaging and detailed without ever getting boring, and funny as well. The tour itself was perfect, and the meeting spot was easy to find. Overall it was an amazing experience that I would absolutely repeat if I'm ever in Pompeii again.
I was very satisfied especially as someone from walks of Italy called as I was running late, to see where I was. The guide was very knowledgeable but could have been a bit more personable.
