Hello everyone! My name is Emiliano: I am a professional archaeologist and an official tour guide. I studied ARCHAEOLOGY at University, but this has always been my PASSION since I was a child. I have been focusing on Pompeii and Herculaneum since 2010, because I think those places are pure magic.
I’m also the founder of ASKOS TOURS, a company with the goal to arrange the best archaeological tours in Italy. I lead a team of wonderful archaeologists and guides, and we, together, do the experiences I designed over the years. My colleagues all have my same qualifications and the same passion for archaeology.
I’m proud to say that our Airbnb experience is one of the MOST BOOKED and BEST REVIEWED in the country.
I hope you’ll like it too!

Where you'll be

We will visit the western area of the ruins, where are located the most important temples, homes and markets. The highlights are the sea gate, the basilica, the forum, thermal baths, the bakery, the houses of Faun and Vetti; and, obviously, we can’t miss the recently discovered DOMUS! We’ll also take a look at the brothel (uh-uh!) and we’ll admire the street of Abundance, the plaster casts and much more…

If you want to visit Pompeii this is how you must do it! Anna was the perfect guide and I feel sorry for anyone that doesn't have her to show them around!

Our guide was Ana, she was very knowledgeable about Pompeij and archeology in general. She showed the highlights but also some details we would have missed otherwise. I highly recommend the tour and actually dont understand the people who visit the site without a quide.

Super visite avec Francesco qui nous a fait voyager dans l’Antiquité ! On en sait plus sur les petits et grands secrets de Pompéï! Merci !

Really easy to book and well organised- sent information in advance and greeted us at the main entrance and knew us by name. Really informative tour around the main areas of Pompeii as well as suggestions about what to see after the guided walk (the tour is 2hours but the site is open all day until 7pm so plenty of time to explore alone) Definitely learnt more about the history of the city and the layout and buildings than you would with a map or audio guide. 100% recommended.

Superbe visite de Pompéi avec notre guide Francesco. Francesco est très sympathique et passionné par son métier. Nous avons adoré l’écouter et il a su nous donner de nombreux détails pour nous faire voyager dans le temps. Notre visite du site n’aurait vraiment pas été la même sans lui et nous le recommandons vivement !! Les instructions données par Emiliano avant la visite sont très claires et nous n’avons eu aucun mal à repérer et trouver notre guide sur le site.

It was easy to meet him before the tour and he had good recommendations of what to do after the tour. I would recommend this tour company to anyone going to Pompeii - grazie mille!
