Pompeii: Guided Small Group Tour
From $103.10

Enjoy the incredible UNESCO-listed archaeological site of Pompeii on a small-group tour. Experience the remains of this ancient city, destroy by the eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD. See the House of the Gladiators and the suburban baths and gain insight into what local life was like nearly 2,000 years ago, through such things as temple ruins, graffiti-covered walls and various mosaics. Walk in the steps of history as you learn Pompeii's fascinating story from an expert and knowledgable guide.

What to Expect
Embark on a unique tour of Pompeii offered in a small group of maximum 6 people. On this 2,5 hrs journey, you will be able to visit one of the most distinctive historical sites in history with a small group and an actual archeologist as your guide. Pompeii is a city condensed with information of the ancient everyday life since it was encapsulated and buried in 79 BC by the eruption from the nearby volcano Vesuvius.

To visit Pompeii with a knowledgeable guide is essential to understand what the city really has to offer. The tour walks you through a selection of the main villas, such as: House of Menander, House of the Gladiators, House of Julie Felix, House of Loreius Tiburtinus, House of Sallust, House of the Tragic Poet, House of the Vettii Lupanar, Temple of Isis and the suburban baths. The itinerary is perfect for curious and inquiring minds that are looking to get the most out of their visit. The small groups of maximum six people enables you to achieve more out of your visit and the estimated time for this tour is 2.5 hours.


When you book a small group tour, you are guaranteed one tour guide per group of 6 people. Please bear in mind though that in order to accommodate traveling families and friends, we do on rare occasion make the exception of adding an additional one to two guests in order not to split groups who are traveling together. On that same note, you may find yourself on tour with less than six people. As we accept bookings in multiples of six, math doesn’t always work in our favor to help accommodate individual travelers and their families when on the same tour, so we hope you understand and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

A quick glance on Pompeii

I was travelling with family and it seemed to us that this tour did not cover all important locations/highlights of Pompeii. The tour has abruptly finished and we had to continue our own to visit the vast majority of sights

Amazing tour of Pompeii

Went through LivItaly tour of the ruins in Pompeii, such an amazing place. Learned so much about life in Pompeii before the cataclysmic destruction of the Volcano. So many stories still being excavated. Well worth the trip

With Angelo's guidance, we ventured out of Rome on our own to Pompeii. We took a high speed train to Naples and changed to the Circumvesuviana line into Pompeii. We met our guide Peppino exactly where Angelo said he would be. Peppino was so knowledgeable...More
