Everything went perfectly! Safe transport, priority access, informative guide at Pompeii site, and a hike towards the crater of Mount Vesuvius. I highly recommend it!



Definitely a highlight of my journey through Italy. Even though you can observe Roman history in each town, Pompeii was a special experience for me. It's tragic and lovely at the same time, and I think it's a must-visit!
