Get the most from your visit; understand the sights before your eyes

Experience Pompeii without the stress of following a map and trying to decipher ruins by yourself. With an expert archaeologist on hand, you'll be taken right to the coolest sights Pompeii has to offer and truly understand what they are.

You’ll see all of the most popular sites, including a Roman bakery and the Roman Forum. You’ll learn what Ancient Romans ate and drank, what they did for fun and the sad, misguided beliefs they held about the cause of those ground tremors they felt before the eruption, or the frequent clouds of ash from the nearby Mt. Vesuvius.

Of course you’ll visit what is - for many visitors - the highlight of their Pompeii tour – the world-famous plaster casts of those killed in the eruption; eerie and moving glimpses of what it must have been like to experience Armageddon.

We recently extended our Pompeii tour to include one of Pompeii's beautiful theaters, which is amazingly well-preserved so you can easily imagine what it was like to watch a performance here in summer, on a warm Italian evening.

Pompeii guides handpicked for their knowledge and friendliness

Tour operators are required to use official Pompeii tour guides at the archaeological ruins. We’ve chosen only the best of the bunch to work with; hand-picking guides with passion and knowledge, not to mention the storytelling skills required to bring this incredible city to life for you. As on all our tours, we only work with the best five-star guides, because we understand that they’re the most important element of your tour. So when you walk with Walks, you can trust that you’re getting the best.

If you take a guided tour on only one stop of your Italy vacation, make it Pompeii. With the power to enchant and delight, Pompeii is a hieroglyphic of a site, needing an expert touch to translate. But in the hands of the right archaeologist, it truly comes to life as a living, breathing city.

The guide was really amazing! We saw a house that was opened to the public only the day before! I only wish the tour had allowed to see several other structures but we ran out of time. It was fairly rushed as well. But I would highly recommend this guide and her expertise on Pompeii!

Ilaria was phenomenal! We went with Walks because the company was recommended highly for the history on Nomadic Matt’s website. Despite this, we didn’t really know what to expect. Ilaria was personable and increasingly knowledgeable. Our group threw a lot of questions at her and she answered all of them with ease and confidence. It always shows when someone enjoys their job and makes for a better experience! We will be recommending this tour and Ilaria to anyone coming to the area! My only suggestion would be to have a tour of Pompeii and Herculeanum available. We would have loved to have Ilaria explain that archeological site as well!
