Qué harás

This tour consists of a pleasant walk around the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, destroyed and covered in ashes by the VESUVIUS in 79 AD.
During the famous eruption, Pompeii and its inhabitants were buried by tons of pumice and volcanic ashes, which preserved many things and materials in amazing conditions.
The tour starts here, and after it you'll have time to grab some lunch or to stroll on the souvenirs' shops outside the ruins.
Then I'll provide you with the Circumvesuviana train tickets and we will catch it in order to get to Herculaneum (20 mins trip circa) and start our walk in the ruins.
Herculaneum is much smaller, but even better preserved than Pompeii. While Pompeii had been covered in four meters of ashes, an avalanche of 20-meters-thick mud had buried Herculaneum. Two-floor buildings, carbonized wooden objects, intact paintings and mosaics are still observable there. The site gives a vivid impression of the opulent lifestyle enjoyed by the wealthier citizens of the Roman Empire!
Our walk ends in Herculaneum.

The tour is in ENGLISH or in Italian, only for a SMALL GROUP (15 people maximum).

Hello everyone! I'm Sergio. I was born and raised in POMPEII, under the shade of Mount VESUVIUS.
I graduated in ARCHAEOLOGY and then in HISTORY! I am a professional licensed tourist guide and a big, passionate fan of archaeology and of the places I happen to live in: they are pure magic. Since I was a child, I've always had a great delight in reading history books. I also love VISUAL ARTS and I enjoy very much drawing ancient monuments. I am thrilled to travel; I love photography and I like to create photo art. Music is an essential part of my life: in fact, I play the keyboard in a rock band ;)
It's a pleasure for me to offer you my skills, shall you want to explore Pompeii and/or Herculaneum.
I really can't wait to meet you!

Donde estarás

I'll meet you at Porta Marina Superiore holding a sign with "Askos Tours Explore Pompeii & Herculaneum" on top. We'll visit the west area of Pompei for about 2 hours; we'll then move to Herculaneum using the local train: here we'll spend two more hours. A walk in these famous ruins is a very intense experience: you'll have the feeling of wandering in towns that are still alive! All of the major highlights of the 2 sites wilI be covered!

Good tour with very knowledgeable guide. Group was somewhat bigger than expected (I counted 13 in Pompéi). Combination Pompéi + Herculaneum is great (I recommend it though it might be a little intense to some).

This is probably the best possible tour of these sites if you are serious about learning the history of these ruins! Michele is an extremely knowledgeable academic and teacher who planned a perfect route, explaining and contextualizing each piece along the way and highlighting their significance. I consider myself fairly knowledgeable about these sites and I learned a staggering amount! Absolutely do not miss Herculaneum, it is very well preserved and with Michele’s storytelling it feels like time traveling to 79 AD.

First and foremost, these are two of the most incredible archaeological sites I have ever visited, and seeing both of them is absolutely essential for anyone visiting Naples, Sorrento, or Campania in general. Do NOT skip Herculaneum! While it's smaller and of course less famous, the history and artifacts that are preserved there are simply spectacular and really complement Pompeii. We were led by Michele, who was an excellent guide and host. His knowledge of the two archaeological sites is very extensive, and he did an amazing job of conveying the history and ingenuity of Roman life in these cities, and the tragedy of the eruption. We were guided smoothly through the two sites, and learned many things about the two cities and how they fit into broader Roman history. Besides being extremely knowledgable, Michele was very friendly and professional. I can't think of any way this tour could have been better!

Sergio accommodated our request to do the tour on a day when it was sold out and Diego was our tour guide, very experienced and demonstrates his passion for it. He was friendly, candid and explained everything in detail. You get your money’s worth and definitely recommend visiting both Pompeii & Herculaneum. Nice job! Diego. Wish you the very best and thank you for a great tour!

Michaelo was our guide today. He did an great job explaining a lot of the history and storiesbehind what we were seeing. There we other people with us on the tours and not everyone had booked through Airbnb. So clearly this is an organized tour guide company not really a personalized airbnb experience. That said, I would still do it again and highly recommend getting a guided tour of both Pompeii and the Herculeum. Thanks Michaelo for making this day rock!
