Hello everyone, this is Emiliano Tufano.
I am an archaeologist and a licensed tour guide. In 2010 I created Pompeiin, a company offering guided tours and shore excursions in Campania.

We arrange tailor-made itineraries, exhaustive and engaging guided tours for lovers, students at every level, and tourists of every age and nationality.

The transportation with a private Mercedes minivan or sedan and a professional driver costs 60euros per hour (400euros full day); included all taxes, gas, parking expenses, pick up and drop off at the customer’s accommodation, airports or ports.
An ancient Roman city frozen in time. A walk in Pompeii is a very intense experience; you'll have the feeling of wandering in a still alive town.
You can choose among tours with different length, from 2 hours to 6 hours.
