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.
