About Positano To Pompeii Tour

Leave Positano's colorful buildings behind for a day and journey back in time to the ruins of Pompeii! With an archaeological guide leading the way, discover the ancient buildings and gain an insight into the daily life of the Pompeii people before the eruption of Mount Vesuvius brought a tragic end upon them in 79 AD.


Positano To Pompeii Tour

Start your Positano to Pompeii tour with a convenient pick-up at your accommodation and get set for a trip to ancient history. With a skip-the-line ticket, bypass the long queue in front of the ruins and let a licensed archaeological guide lead you through the well-organized streets of the Buried City.

As you stroll through the Buried City, a nickname it got due to the layers of volcanic ash it was buried under in 79 AD, you will have a chance to witness the structured street layout and residential areas. Discover many types of houses, from smaller homes to larger villas like the Villa of Mysteries and House of the Faun, and gain an insight into their social division. Continue your exploration of the public baths and the renowned brothels known as lupanars.

As you pass the Street of Abundance, one of the main streets in Pompeii, you will get a better understanding of the economic prosperity this city once had. The street once hosted a variety of shops, food vendors, taverns, and retail establishments. Wander through the main square where the Forum of Pompeii is situated and admire one of the oldest surviving Roman amphitheaters where gladiator fights were organized to entertain the Pompeii people. In the Garden of the Fugitives, the plaster casts depict the tragic consequences of the eruption. Made by filling the voids discovered in the layers of volcanic ash during the dig, these casts provide valuable insight into both the eruption's devastation and the postures of the buried victims.
