      Your personal knowledgeable guide will show the highlights of Pompeii: the Forum, the Bath-House, the shops and the streets, the fantastic private homes, and more! You are going to be introduced to the history of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius that buried Pompeii 2000 years ago. You will take great pictures of colorful wall-paintings and floor-mosaics. You will enter daily life in ancient Pompeii and discover how advanced Romans were! If you have children from 6 to 11 years old, we recommend the additional family option. The Pompeii for kids tour will make it both an entertaining and learning experience for all the family. You will still visit all the highlights of Pompeii, but this option includes activities, games, a special map with stickers, and a specifically trained tour guide. Please be aware that admission fees are not included, however our certified guides have access to a fast-track line. In other words, we can buy tickets for you quickly on the spot.

      Great day with Fabrizio
      Fabrizio was an amazing guide at Pompeii. He was so informative and friendly and we felt like we were in great hands. He pointed out just enough so we weren’t overwhelmed, but walked away with a great feeling of knowledge. Unfortunately Mt Vesuvius was closed due to bad weather when we arrived, so instead of taken us right back to our hotel Fabrizio suggested going to look at Villa San Marco in Stabia and that was very interesting also.

      Private Tour of Rome, Colosseum, and the Vatican
      We cannot say enough wonderful things about Giuseppe! I found him through toursbylocals but this is his company. He is hands down the best tour guide we've ever experienced anywhere! His passion for his country and its history was beautiful to see, and he is so knowledgeable! There isn't one question we asked that he could not answer. He was also incredibly accommodating to any of our needs, and he is a master at missing the long lines! We were able to walk right into the Colosseum as well as the Vatican, I couldn't believe it! Our driver for the day Max was wonderful as well, navigating the streets of Rome with ease and got us back to our ship in plenty of time. Thank you Giuseppe for a wonderful day, highly highly recommend

      Wonderful day in Pompeii & Amalfi Coast!
      Another huge rave for Giuseppe, this was our second day having him and he made the day perfect once again! We were able to explore Pompeii completely alone because of his guidance, it was incredible. The afternoon was spent driving along the Amalfi coast, which he suggested visiting Ravello since we told him we didn’t want to go to the super crowded locations. This was a beautiful spot and exactly what we hoped for with time to shop and explore a bit. He also reserved us a spot at a wonderful little pizzeria with a beautiful view of the coast where we enjoyed authentic Neapolitan pizza! He returned us safely back to our ship in plenty of time, it was a perfect day.

      Incredible tour, highly recommended
      We took the Herculaneum and Pompeii tour with Fabrizio…it could not have been more perfect. Fabrizio’s depth of knowledge is staggering and delivered with such thoughtful care. He is an incredible storyteller, bringing these ancient characters and places to life in a way that makes it feel so present and alive. Communication with Vincenzo was very easy and informative and travel between sites is extremely comfortable...lunch was fun and delicious too. They are able to personalize trips according to interest and priorities as well. We couldn’t recommend Leisure Italy more highly.

      Amazing Tour of Herculaneum and Pompeii with Family
      We had the most wonderful tour of Herculaneum and Pompeii with Fabrizio. He was so knowledgeable and provided a fascinating day for two archaeology-loving adults while at the same time fully engaging the kids (ages 9 and 13). Such an amazing day. I wholeheartedly recommend.

      Ravello
      We had the best tour with Fabrizio from our Celebrity Cruise ported in Naples. I have used him in the past and he is like seeing an old friend. So friendly and speaks excellent English. We had booked the Amalfi Coasts hidden gems. Ravello and visiting the Villa Ciambrone with it break taking views was the one of our highlights of our 12-day cruise. We also visited a couple other quaint little towns, like Vietri. We first mention to him we were interested in purchasing some Cameo jewelry and he carried us to Palazzo del Corallo Cameo factory showroom. My girls were in Cameo heaven. Fabrizio is the best and so knowledgeable. Anytime we are in this region of Italy we will always book with Fabrizio. He always kept a watchful eye on traffic conditions and port times and making sure we were having a wonderful day. Tami Lorick

      Transportation and Pompeii tour
      Fabrizio was very responsive and set up our transportation from Naples to Sorrento with a stop at Pompeii. Our private tour with Francesca was great! I would highly recommend this company.

      Our tour was absolutely amazing! Fabrizo did great! We checked everything off of our list. Beautiful churches, view points. and shopping. Some of the most gorgeous pictures we had of our entire trip were taken on this tour! We highly recommend stopping at the cameo factory, De Garden Restaurant for lunch, and De Riso for a sweet treat.

      The Most Memorable and Enjoyable Private Tour Experience of Pompeii & Naples
      I wanted to thank Vincenzo Coppola with Leisure Italy for organizing our customized and private one-day tour of Pompeii and Naples for my family of four (2 adults and 2 children, ages 11 and 13). Vincenzo was so helpful, offering exactly the option we wanted for our limited time, guiding us on which high speed train to take from Rome and answering my many questions in the most cheerful way. Our tour guide Natalia and driver Pasquale met us at the Naples central train station and could not have been any more friendly, helpful and welcoming. Natalia was probably the most informative tour guide we had in Italy. She was an encyclopedia of knowledge! we spent almost 3 hours in Pompeii and felt so fortunate we had a private guide. We enjoyed our time with her and learned a lot. Then we went to Naples and enjoyed lunch with Natalia at a restaurant featuring authentic Napoletana pizza (our request, which Vincenzo organized). Next up was a driving tour of Naples and a walking tour of the historic district. Pasquale kept us safe and cool in the car! We saw parts of Naples we would not necessarily have seen on our own, and again, Natalia was a fount of information. She was great about tailoring her information for our kids. Vincenzo organizing the trip made our experience educational, efficient, enjoyable and truly memorable!

      Excellant Tour of Pompeii and the Amlafi Coast
      Had an amazing time touring Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. Giuseppe promptly picked us up on time and gave us a very informative ride on our way to Pompeii. Van was very clean and spacious to fit 7 adults. He was very accommodating and gave us the experience we were looking for our on tour. He made a great recommendations for a lunch restaurant while showing us the amazing views on the way to the Amalfi Coast.

    My 10 year old loves history but doesn’t always follow along if there is a large group, so I booked a private family option. We were so lucky to be with Laura, she made Pompeii come alive for us. She had my 10 year old and my teen so engaged that we lost track of time and almost missed our train and had to make a dash for the train. If you want kids to learn and appreciate history, then this is the tour for you and Laura is the person (ask for her :))

    Fabrizio is without a doubt an excellent tour guide. His English is very clear which can sometimes be a challenge with other guides. We had somewhat of a limited time period with him due to schedule conflicts but he did the best he could to make up for the lost time. We could tell that he was still very interested in the subject matter even after having given so many tours in the past. He was very energetic and gave us some suggestions for things to do after the tour.

    We absolutely loved our trip to Pompeii. Laura was the most wonderful guide. We were desperate to go but also had our 4 year old with us on his first trip away. We picked a time later in the day so not as hot and the site was calm and enchanting. Laura engaged with us and our son with the most fantastic facts and interesting stories. We all loved it. Communication before the trip was also reassuring and prompt. Can highly recommend for big and small people. Thank you we will never forget our afternoon.

    We did two trips. The first was walking tour of Naples with Giuseppe and then the next day we did a tour of Pompeii with Fabrizio. Both were outstanding. They are excellent company and have real depth of content. We definitely got a great deal more out of the time than we would have been able to unaided. They both have a great sense of humour and were determined that we would enjoy ourselves as well as seeing all the relevant sights. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

    I made a HORRIBLE mistake and booked our tour on the wrong date, a day too early. Vincenzo was amazingly accommodating when I called him less than 24 hours out from our scheduled tour, and found us a new tour guide on very short notice. Our tour guide, Fabrizio (who came in on his day off!), was terrific! Incredibly knowledgeable, and clearly passionate about the history of the area. He really made it a special trip for both us and the kids. We would absolutely recommend this tour without hesitation!

    Our guide Natalia was wonderful! It was a super hot day (about 110) and she made sure we got to see all of the sites. She made sure our children were a part of the tour. She was so helpful and even called our driver to meet us at the end of the tour. I would HIGHLY recommend!

    We booked a day tour with Fabrizio to see Pompeii, Vesuvius, and tour the coast a bit. We couldn't of asked for a greater guide. Fabrizio is very knowledgeable, fun and in one day was able to show us some great highlights of multiple attractions. His English is excellent and was attentive throughout the day. I would not hesitate to recommend him and we are very appreciative of all he did to make it one of our best days in Italy!

    First of all, our tour guide Fabrizzio was amazing. A thoughtful and knowledgeable local who has been giving Pompeii tours for 25 years.

    He walked us through a magical tour of Pompeii that enthralled our family. We know so much about this period in history in the area because Pompeii is spectacularly preserved.

    The citizens of Pompeii were extraordinarily advanced with indoor plumbing and architecture.

    I won’t spoil the whole tour. Just know it was one of the highlights of our visit to Italy.

    I’ve wanted to visit Pompeii since I was a child, but knew going in the height of summer with a 12 and 7 year old in tow could have spelt disaster, so decided to book a family friendly tour.

    Flavia met us on time at the place we’d been told to wait and I immediately knew it was the right move. She took us around the corner to a much quieter entrance and negotiated us through the ticket queues with minimum waiting time, giving us some of the basic history while we waited.

    Going for the 9am slot was also a good move, as the first hour was bearable, after that the sun was very hot. I also got the impression it was a little less crowded than later in the day.

    My 7 year old was tired and in a bad mood from staying up later than usual a few nights in a row, but Flavia really engaged him. I was grateful for her being there to keep his attention!

    Flavia took us really efficiently through the history of what happened in Pompeii and took us to a lot of the key sights. I think the beauty of that was that we actually knew what we were looking at, and got a wealth of interesting snippets we would never have found out without her. It also meant we didn’t waste time dragging the kids around unnecessarily in the heat while we fumbled with a map - Flavia knew exactly which route to take to see the key bits.

    The games were really good - especially the one that had us figuring out which foods the people of Pompeii ate, and the opportunity to feel ash and pumice in the drawstring bags.

    It wasn’t until afterwards that I really understood the benefit of having the tour. When we told my parents (who have been before but without a guide) we had so much more knowledge than they had picked up. They were really surprised how much they had overlooked or missed. Most importantly, the children had retained so much of what Flavia had told them and were excited to tell their grandparents - even my son who had walked around with his bottom lip sticking out the whole time was chattering away about everything he had learned!!

    Once our time with Flavia was over she left us to wander the site, so we had freedom to explore on our own. My biggest reflections would be that it’s far bigger than you could ever imagine. It’s not just an archeological site, you have to remember it is literally a whole town. It would take days to see it all and so much of it is yet to be discovered. It’s haunting, and you do feel guilty for being a tourist in a place where there must have been so much suffering. That aside, it is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever done.
