Skip the Line Pompeii Tickets

As one of the most intriguing sites in southern Italy, Pompeii can get pretty crowded. Luckily for you, we offer skip the line tickets with an expert archaeologist guide to lead you through the incredible ruins of the city. Meet your guide at the designated meeting spot on your voucher and off you go.

A City Frozen in Time

In 79 A.D. the flourishing city of Pompeii was changed forever due to a catastrophic volcanic eruption. The city, defined by its large amphitheater, artisan community and even brothels, was destroyed in an instant by the wrath of Mount Vesuvius. Despite what you may think, the volcanic eruption may have destroyed the city, but also preserved it.

Almost 2,000 years later, a team of archaeologists discovered artifacts and even bodies frozen by the tragic eruption’s volcanic ash. Follow your guide to explore the remnants left behind by the catastrophe, giving life to the lost city. You will understand what life was like before, during and after the timeless disaster.

Villa of Mysteries

After your guided tour of the ruins of Pompeii, head over to Villa di Misteri. You'll be hard-pressed to find a Pompeii tour that also visits the Villa of Mysteries. Why? We like to call this ancient house a hidden gem of the area. As archeological and historical experts, it's our mission to take you to some of Pompeii's untouched phenomena.

Once you arrive at the villa, you'll notice that it survived the 79 A.D. eruption shockingly well. Your guide will point out the frescoes that had been buried underneath volcanic ash for years. You might be surprised to find out exactly what the frescoes are thought to depict! 

Arrivederci!

After your guided tour, it’s time to say arrivederci to your group and guide. Feel free to keep exploring the ruins on your own, though! While this tour does not include transportation to and from Rome, you can easily join our Day Trip from Rome to Pompeii, which does offer luxury transportation to Pompeii.

Great Experience

Start of the tour was delayed a bit, but overall good. I enjoyed my time after the tour exploring Pompeii on my own. The city was amazing and I ended up staying 3 extra hours after the tour! Tour guide was hard to hear through the headphones due to wind, but overall a great experience with good explanations of the history and ruins. Would do it again!
