Purchase your train tickets at your own expense and then, after a 30-minute train journey, you’ll arrive at the UNESCO-listed archeological site of Pompeii.
After paying the entrance fee, head inside and embark on a guided tour of Pompeii’s petrified highlights. The perfectly preserved monuments appear almost exactly as they did after they were devastated by the 79AD eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, which buried two cities and killed more than 15,000 people.

Imagine a thriving Roman city before Mt. Vesuvius’ eruption as you visit the site of Pompeii's brothel, baths, bakery, and an original ‘fast-food’ shop.
If you’re travelling with children, clues, puzzles, games, and a fun map will make their experience as enjoyable as your own. Allow them to act as guides, revealing fascinating facts at points of interest, and feel engrossed as your guide brings history to life.
