Description

Enjoy this full-day, private tour to the ruins of the ancient cities of Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Oplonti. Take in the sights with a private guide who will share stories and history of each place.

Meet your guide near the Hotel Vittoria at about 9am to begin your tour. Begin by visiting the Pompeii ruins, and immerse yourself in the history. Appreciate the rich decorations of the House of Menander and the acoustics of the theaters. Pass the red-light district, and follow the path up to the forum, where all aspects of Roman life met in the square. Explore Pompeii for about 2.5 hours.

On the other side, visit the Herculaneum, a city that proved to be wealthier and larger than Pompeii. View the more luxurious details in the houses here, with rich mosaics and frescoes of the famous Baths. One of the main features of the buildings are their wooden ceilings and doors that have been burned by lava and preserved throughout the centuries. Spend about 2 hours here to discover more stories.

Next, follow your guide to the Oplonti site in Torre Annunziata for around an hour. In this archaeological area, visit the Villa di Poppea, a summer residence named after Emperor Nero's wife. You will be guided into the main rooms and gardens of the villa to see its remarkable marble sculptures that adorn the colonnade surrounding the whole building.

Throughout your tour, you will be able to skip the lines with your guide.
