Our guide did a fantastic job, and we are so happy we chose to book with Walks of Italy upon Lonely Planet's recommendation. We unpacked so many layers of history, but in a very accessible way. Would definitely send friends to do a tour with you in the future

Paolo was a great tour guide! He shared so many stories and details of the ruins that we would have missed without a guide - he was also careful to position us in the shade as it was a hot day. We had enough free time to take photos and explore on our own. At the end of the tour, he shared recommendations for pizza in Naples.


Can I use a wheelchair on this tour?
Yes, but we require advance notice in order to accommodate wheelchairs on this tour. After booking, please contact us so that we can organize a private tour for you. If we cannot find a guide to lead you that day we'll offer you the same tour on the next avaialbe date or give you credit for another tour anywhere else in the world.
What if the weather is bad (rain, snow, hail, etc.) on the day of my tour?
Our tours run rain or shine so please dress for the elements. We also ask you to please remember hats and sunscreen if you are taking this tour in the summer as it might be very hot.
Can I bring a bag into Pompeii with me?
Only small bags are allowed into Pompeii. Larger bags or backpacks will have to be left in the luggage lockers in the train station. Tripods are also not allowed.
Is Pompeii accessible to people in wheelchairs?
The streets of Pompeii have never been repaved or smoothed over so much of the city is nearly impossible to navigate for those with mobility impairments. If you use a wheelchair there is a special route for you, so please contact our customer service department for details.
