Unique experience!

I had a blast on this day tour as it took me back in time. Out of all UNESCO World Heritage Sites I’ve visited, this is my favorite yet. I couldn’t believe how well-preserved the ancient city is, and to think it’s all because of the volcanic ash is just outstanding. Beautiful artwork wherever you look, guides full of interesting facts, and enough time to wander around and enjoy the beauty. Highly recommend it!

Exciting day!

The guide was incredibly informative and taught us A LOT of details from ancient life, which we found super interesting. Our favorite part was walking around Mount Vesuvius, it’s truly empowering to be up there, and the view is breathtaking. The pizza was delicious as well. We would recommend this Pompeii tour to anyone remotely interested in the history of Romans.
