Private Pompeii & Herculaneum Guided Tour With An English-Speaking Archaeologist

  • E-Ticket
  • Private Tour
  • Live Guide

This is a walking Tour to visit on the same day two very important archaeological sites: Pompeii and Herculaneum ruins. Both these sites are linked to their tragic destiny due to the 79 AD eruption of Mt Vesuvius, a volcano that still stands majestically close to the two cities This is a walking tour (NO transportation is included) and the transfer between the two archaeological sites will take place by EAV Circumvesuviana railway trains (the trip between Pompeii and Herculaneum takes about 15-20 minutes). Skip the line included in the ruins of Pompeii only. (Entrance tickets and train tickets are NOT included). You’ll meet our professional English-speaking REAL Archaeologist by a pre-arranged meeting point by main entrance of Pompeii site (Porta Marina Superiore). Of course this tour can be customized to your needs and requests and, if you prefer, we can start it from Herculaneum instead of Pompeii. You’ll spend 2 hours in each site (+ transfer time by train from a spot to another)

Itinerary Details

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Pompeii Archaeological Park

This private guided tour in Pompeii with an archaeologist at your complete disposal lasts 2 hours. Generally, your archaeologist will follow a "classic" itinerary with you in order to maximize the number of monuments you can visit in two hours. But the itinerary can also be decided together with our expert: flexibility is maximum but it is advisable that you let us know your preferences in advance.

Duration: 2 hour

Stop At: Parco Acheologico di Ercolano

Although Herculaneum is much smaller than Pompeii, it is better preserved. In fact, Herculaneum, unlike Pompeii, was completely buried under 20 meters of mud that preserved incredibly well the most part of the buildings, furnishings, wooden objects, mosaic floors, etc.
