- 3 hours with a Ph.D. or MA-level guide
- Private car to and from Pompeii
At the end of our time together, the whole group will walk away with a richer understanding of everyday life in the Roman Empire, as well as the history of the city of Pompeii and its untimely fate. Together we will peel back layer after layer of the past and peer into those last moments before this once prosperous town was lost to antiquity.
The private car service will either pick you up at the Naples train station (if you are coming from Rome) 30 minutes before the beginning of the tour, at your accommodation in Naples 30 minutes before the beginning of the tour, or at your accommodation on the Amalfi Coast 1 hour before the beginning of the tour, depending on where you are staying.
The ride out to Pompeii will take approximately 30 minutes (1 hour from the Amalfi Coast). You will meet your guide directly in Pompeii at the start time of the tour. If you have any questions about arriving in Naples, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If I am coming from Rome and I need train tickets, how should I proceed? If you're coming from Rome, your train tickets to and from Naples are not included in the price of this tour. You can email us (email@example.com) and ask us to add them to your booking, or you can purchase tickets via an independent vendor.
