Our experience with Nancy Aiello Tours was the highlight of our trip to Rome. Our guide was really knowledgeable and able to adapt and please us (the parents), a 17 year old boy and a 7 year old girl. Which is asking a lot!! She made the day interesting and fun! I feel we learned things that we would have never found in a large guided tour or through audio or guide books. It was great that she was able to navigate around long lines and bring us to the places that were of interest to us. We didn’t have a lot of time before our trip to make plans for our stay in Rome, which was fine because you did everything for us. It felt like we were out with a friend showing us Ancient Rome, just happened that that friend was extremely knowledgeable!
Would definitely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours – really worth it if you are busy and don’t have the time to do a lot of research before traveling (which you need to do as there is so much that Rome has to offer). Fantastic for kids as it wasn’t just a lot of information thrown at us but it was information that all of us found really interesting. Our guide was able to lead us and answer questions about what we found interesting instead of just throwing facts our way. My son said it was the highlight of his trip to Rome and my daughter is telling everyone all the things that our Guide told her!!

Enjoy a guided tour of Pompeii top sights. Learn about life in ancient Rome and how the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius created this amazing city frozen in time. Walk down the old Roman high streets just as the Romans did. On August 24th in 79 AD a massive volcanic eruption destroyed the city. Tons of lava instantly petrified the bodies of 2000 of its inhabitants. This natural preservation provides an intimate look into the Roman private life in ancient times. Today two thirds of the city has been excavated and the ruins of a flourishing civilization have been brought to life again. Because of the airtight conditions beneath the lava Pompeii is the most well-preserved ancient city in the world with streets and buildings providing detailed information of the living conditions of the Romans.
At the end of your guided tour say goodbye to your Pompeii guide. Travel towards the Mt Vesuvius, the famous volcano that earned its reputation from a series of deadly eruptions that culminated in the destruction of Pompeii. Your ride up Mt. Vesuvius National Park begins with the slow trip up the windy road up the hill until the parking lot to the crater. When you reach a level of about 3000 feet above sea level you come to the end of the road. To hike to the top of the Mt Vesuvius you must leave the vehicle behind here and take an approx. 30 minute upward hike of moderate difficulty to the crater edge which reaches approximately 3800 feet above sea level and another 25 minute back down. However, from the top the panoramic views over the Bay of Naples and fresh air are well worth the effort! At the end of your exclusive Volcano Pompeii day tour return back to your hotel.
