  • Skip the line and wander around the lost city of Pompeii with an engrossing audio guide
  • Hear the astonishing story of how the city perished in the disastrous eruption of Mount Vesuvius, and its subsequent discovery and excavation
  • Visit old dwellings, fountains, statues, public baths, aqueducts, the city amphitheater, and see haunting casts of the bodies that were found at the site

You might assume that a gigantic volcanic eruption would erase everything in its path — not in this case! Decimated by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 CE, the city was frozen in time, as a superheated blanket of ash prevented any moisture from eroding the ruins. Over 2,000 years later, Pompeii is still standing.

Explore one of the world's most remarkable archeological sites with an engrossing audio guide, and wander the eerie ruins while Mount Vesuvius looks on.

Get immersed in the astounding story of Pompeii's sudden, unfortunate end, and its discovery 1,669 years later, as a compelling audio guide narrates the city's jaw-dropping ruins while you explore. You'll be transported back in time, and into the lives of the city's residents, moments before things got heated.

Traverse the 50-hectare site and brush up on your history. Explore the ghostly ruins of old dwellings, fountains, statues, public baths, aqueducts, and the city amphitheater.

You'll also see casts of the city's inhabitants, who perished in the erupting ash cloud that blanketed the city. It's an extraordinary sight to behold. One moment they were going about their lives, the next, they were turned to cinders by a sulfurous firestorm nobody saw coming.

I found Pompeii disappointing. Ruins are interesting but the visit becomes very repetitive, I can’t imagine anyone spending 5 hours on a visit, we found 2 hours more than enough. As for the audio guide, informative if you manage to stay on the route but if you stray, it becomes virtually useless. In summary, worth a look yes, would I return no.

The audio guide allowed you to take your time through the ruins. Excellent information.
