Tour Description
Pompeii offers kids an unparalleled view into ancient history. Frozen in time and wonderfully preserved, it is one of the few places in the world where ancient civilization comes to life so vividly. In this full-day Pompeii for Kids Tour, a day trip from Naples, we dive deeply into the ruins of Pompeii as well as the Archaeological Museum in Naples. This is a fantastic way to get the most out of a visit to Pompeii with kids.

NOTE: This tour includes a car service that will pick you up at your accommodation in Naples.  Please tell us your hotel or apartment address in the 'Additional Details' box while adding the tour to your shopping cart.

Pompeii for Kids Tour

On the drive out to the site of Pompeii, our guide will provide historical background that will set up the context for understanding the site and what we will see later at the Archaeological Museum in Naples. Upon arriving, we will move swiftly through the ancient cobblestoned roads, exploring the homes, temples, shops, civic buildings, and public spaces that intricately illustrate everyday activities in the city. We will explore the similarities and differences between life in ancient Pompeii and modern-day family life.

Naples Archeological Museum

Leaving the site by the early afternoon, we will return to Naples, by car, where we will enjoy lunch in a small, non-touristy restaurant in the city center, followed by a short stroll through the center, poking our head into a few churches and providing a short synopsis of the history of the city. The group will then head to the Naples Archeological Museum, one of the greatest collections of ancient art and artifacts in the world, where we will link back to connections with Pompeii while viewing the colorful frescoes, mosaics, and statues unearthed during the excavations, begun in the 18th century by envoys of the Bourbon kings of Naples. These artifacts provide vivid visual examples of the Pompeiians and their life, allowing for a full understanding of the culture of the time.

By the end of the excursion, the whole family will have gained a deeper understanding of the ancient site of Pompeii and its unmerciful fate. The kids can take back home unique and fun memories of long-gone history, and, naturally, some mouth-watering gelato as well.

Miscellaneous

We also have a host of Pompeii tours intended for adults like our half-day Pompeii Tour, or our full-day Pompeii Tour including the Naples Archeological Museum.

Fiorella is perfection! Her love of history and Naples shines through. Our family was thoroughly engaged as we walked and learned about Pompeii even in the record-breaking heat. Our family wanted to explore Naples as well so Fiorella pivoted seamlessly. She expertly guided us through busy streets and pointed out murals and churches etc that would interest adults and the teenagers. She made us feel special by introducing us to local restaurants and shops. It was a wonderful experience!! We can’t wait to come back to Naples and take another Context tour with Fiorella.
Fiorella was wonderful with the children and the adults alike. She had so much interesting information to share, and she could answer all of our questions, even the obscure ones. She was also very flexible and adapted our plan based on the kids' energy and interests. It was a pleasure to spend the day with her.
Francesca was an amazing guide - my son was so excited for Pompeii and she took him to all the places he requested, including Caecalius’s house and the theater, among others. She was knowledgeable and flexible, spent longer than she planned with us in Pompeii and gave us an abbreviated but high yield tour of the archeological museum, which was definitely worthwhile after seeing the ruins. The highlight of our trip and a perfect day thanks to Francesca.
