The Ultimate Pompeii Experience

Whether it's a site that has always been on your travel wish-list or you simply can't wait to return, Pompeii is an awe-inspiring site and our eight-day tour is a best-seller for a reason. There's no better or more immersive way to experience this iconic archaeological destination than in the company of an expert Guide Lecturer, who can bring to life the stories of its everyday citizens, put what you're seeing into context and even take you behind the scenes at fascinating sites.
Our tour includes several special access encounters that you won't find elsewhere, a chance to hike the crater of Vesuvius, visits to 'off the beaten track' villas at Stabiae, and the expertise of a renowned guide throughout – this is the ultimate Pompeii experience and it departs throughout the year.

Highlights on our best-selling tour of Pompeii

This itinerary includes a selection of memorable, money-can't-buy experiences unique to Andante Travel. These include private access to the Theatre of Herculaneum, private access to the Cave of Sejanus and the adjoining villa of Pausilypon with its dramatic coastal views, and private access to the store rooms at Paestum, where Lucanian painted tombs closed to members of the public can be observed.

We've had some wonderful testimonials from guests who enjoyed our best-selling tour in 2021, including one that simply said "an Andante tour spoils all other tours" and this great feedback below:

A tribute indeed
