What to Expect

Named as a World Heritage Site in 1997, the Lost City of Pompeii is a must-see on any family trip to Italy. Step out of the classroom and into the ancient streets of Pompeii on this private tour designed to engage the whole family. Learn the storied history behind this open-air museum with an expert kid-friendly guide on hand.


When Mt. Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD it left a flourishing city in ruin, but it also captured a day in the life of a Pompeian forever fossilized – turning what once was tragic into modern day magic. These ominous ruins, immortalized in pumice and ash, have quite literally allowed history to be frozen in time. Walk through history among baths, villas, markets, and forums just as the Romans did. Your guide will bring these relics back to life through rich, entertaining and educating stories keeping the kids fully engaged and parents entertained throughout.
