The Pompeii tour with Kids Tours of Rome is a fantastic private tour to show firsthand what is perhaps the most famous history lesson of Italy that kids learn in school. The modern town of Pompei and the ruins of old Pompeii can be reached by train within 30 minutes of Napoli or Sorrento.
Besides being at the foot of Mt. Vesuvius, both locations are also near the Amalfi Coast, famous for its iconic coastal winding drive through historic seaside villages perched on cliffs and down the hillside to small rocky beaches below. An option to add a coastal drive or a hike to the volcano are possible to make this family tour a full day excursion. Ask your tour coordinator for more details and a custom quote for transportation from your hotel if you want to do a combined excursion.
The volcanic eruption of AD 79 that buried the ancient Roman cities such as Pompeii and Ercolano is a history lesson taught in schools around the world when learning about the ancient Romans. As one of the many UNESCO sites located in Italy, Pompeii is perhaps the most famous and most visited of them all.
Only about 2/3 of the total area of ancient Pompeii has been excavated and less than 1/3 of the excavated buildings are possible to visit. However, going on your own could still take an entire day to navigate and find all of the important sites that archeologists have preserved and studied. To get the most out of your visit, your guide will walk you down the ancient roads, show and explain to you about the ancient businesses and homes in the most efficient manner possible during your time.
You may also visit the government center, see the theaters, and learn about the typical life of the people in Pompeii as time permits. There are also displays of artifacts and plaster casts of the people who perished during the volcanic event. If you believe that you or your children are too sensitive to see the casts of the bodies, make sure to tell your tour coordinator ahead of time so that they are avoided during the tour.
Pompeii is best seen with a local guide who knows the history there and can clearly explain everything you see. It is an exciting venue for families with children of all ages. Come discover this lost city with one of our family friendly guides for an unforgettable experience!
