Opt for the parking space if you'll plan to come by car.

  • Visit the ancient archaeological wonder of Pompeii and explore incredibly well-preserved ruins that were buried in volcanic ash for centuries
  • See aqueducts, an impressive amphitheater, dwellings, statues, public baths and fountains, as well as casts of the Pompeii residents' bodies preserved by ash
  • Get a rain jacket should you require it, opt for the parking space if you'll plan to come by car, and sip a free orange juice after you've finished exploring

Unlike most other city ruins from 2,000 years ago, Pompeii has not been eroded by rain, as super-heated ash from Mount Vesuvius kept all the moisture out for millennia. Discover this remarkable archaeological treasure that lay lost for centuries under volcanic debris, and enjoy a few lovely perks with a special VIP ticket.

There's nowhere else like Pompeii in the world. This unique window into ancient history was made possible by the violent eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 CE, which coated everything in a 12km radius with a thick layer of ash.

While having the unfortunate immediate effect of wiping out everything that was busy living at the time, the Vesuvius eruption helped preserve aspects of the city for thousands of years that would have otherwise perished in the elements.

So now, you can walk around inside this snapshot of ancient history, and really see how Roman life used to be. See aqueducts, an impressive amphitheater, as well as dwellings, stables, statues, public baths, and fountains.

Happen upon casts of the ash-embalmed bodies that were found when the site was excavated. It's eerily quiet and even though the great cataclysm happened many years ago, the looming presence of Mount Vesuvius in the distance lends a sense of tension to the experience!

Opt for the special treatment with the full VIP Experience ticket and explore the ancient Pompeii with a few nice touches of modern comfort. Get a raincoat in case of bad weather, add the parking space option if you should come by car, and enjoy a fresh orange juice to sip on after you've wandered the jaw-dropping ruins.
