FAQ - Pompeii Guided Tour

Is it worth getting a tour guide in Pompeii?

Yes! It is definitely worth going on a guided tour of Pompeii if you would like to get a full insight into the lives of the Pompeii residents before the tragic eruption of the Mount Vesuvius volcano. Also, by going on a tour, you won't have to spend hours figuring out where to go - an expert guide will show you all the key spots.

Does Pompeii offer guided tours?

Yes. But if you're planning to explore Pompeii with a guided tour, it's better to book online. When you book at the entrances of Pompeii, you won't get skip-the-line access. This means you might end up waiting in line for quite a while. Save time and hassle by booking our hand-picked Pompeii guided tour online, which includes skip-the-line access.

What is the best way to visit Pompeii?

By far, the best way to explore the ancient Roman city of Pompeii is by going on a guided tour or organized day trip to Pompeii from any of the major Italian cities. You can book a day trip from Rome to Pompeii, Naples to Pompeii tour or even a day tour from Amalfi Coast to Pompeii.

How long are queues at Pompeii?

The lines at Pompeii's entrance can get pretty long, depending on when you go. If you visit during busy times like summer, between 10 AM to 12 PM or 5 PM to 7 PM, you'll likely face large crowds. Without a priority entrance ticket, you might spend a while waiting. That's why we suggest booking our Pompeii Tours - they include skip-the-line access, so no matter when you decide to visit, you won't waste your time waiting in queues.

The best Pompeii Guided Tour you can book!

Marco was an excellent guide and added a special note to an amazing day in Pompeii with its knowledge. He answered all of our questions and wasn't afraid to give his own opinion about the tragic event that happened there. A guided tour is a MUST! We definitely wouldn't be able to learn all about the fascinating history of Pompeii and see its main site without Marco. Such a great experience!

Chiara was a very knowledgeable and funny guide. Thanks to her and skip-the-line access, which is included in this tour, we saw as much as possible in just two hours. When our tour finished, she pointed us to other interesting places to see while in Pompeii, which we did and loved. All that historical facts and information made us really appreciate and understand what we were seeing, and this tour made us enjoy our Pompeii experience a lot more. Definitely worth booking!
