Pompeii Tour with an archeologist

Discover the ancient city of Pompeii on a 2-hour small-group tour led by an archeologist.

Come with Citywalkers on our classic Pompeii Walking Tour.

Skip the long ticket lines on this 2-hour tour, and discover Pompeii, the remains of the Roman city frozen in time by the volcanic eruption of 79 A.D: the volcanic ash preserved Pompeii’s buildings, streets, mosaics, and frescoes, making Pompeii a unique site.

Follow your licensend archaeologist-guide in a small group tour (max 12 people) to experience this everyday Roman town, almost like it was under the Roman Empire.

You’ll explore the best of Pompeii:

from the Roman Forum to the world-famous plaster casts of those killed in the eruption
from the Basilica to the Roman Bath, from the red light district, with the beautiful brothel Lupanare, to the Roman theatre (Teatro Grande) from and of the most beautiful domus (private houses) like house of Faun.

You will listen stories and fascinating anecdotes about what life was like before and during the eruption that will make your visit unforgettable.

Tour Overview

Stop 1

Marina Gate

This gate provides access to the west of the city and it is the most impressive among the seven gates of Pompeii. The name derives from the fact that the exit road led to the sea. The layout with a barrel vault made of concrete, that is a mixture of mortar and stones, dates back to the Silla colony (80 BC).
Stop 2


The Basilica, with its extension of 1,500 square metres, was the most sumptuous building of the Forum, and its space was used to carry out business and for the administration of justice.
Stop 3


The Civil Forum is the core of daily life of the city and is the focal point of all the main public buildings for city administration and justice, business management, and trade activities such as markets, as well as the main places of citizen worship.
Stop 4

Lupanare (Red Light District

The brothel is named from lupa, a Latin word meaning 'prostitute'. Small paintings with erotic depictions on the walls of the central corridor informed customers of the activities that took place within the Lupanare.
Stop 5

Private Home: Fauno Home or Leda and the Swan Home

Visit onw of the best Domus romana (private house) well preserved in Pompeii
Stop 6

Roman Bath

The Forum Baths are located behind the Temple
of Jupiter and date back to the
years immediately after the founding of the colony of veterans by General Silla (80 BC). Women's and men's quarters had separate entrances. The men's section presents an apodyterium (dressing room), used also as a tepidarium (for medium temperature baths), frigidarium (for cold baths) and calidarium (for hot baths).
Stop 7

Roman Theatre

The Grand Theatre was built around the middle of the 2nd century BC by exploiting the natural slope of the hill for the construction of the auditorium. The staircase was separated into three areas with corridors, which were in turn divided into five sectors, and was based on a passage with a barrel vault.
