Pompeii Skip the Line Tickets

If you want to explore Pompeii at your own pace and get reserved access to the site, Pompeii skip-the-line tickets are the best option.

You can select from four different options: an entry ticket with or without an audio guide, Pompeii Express or Pompeii Plus.

Pompeii Plus gives you access to the ancient suburban villas: the Villa of the Mysteries, the Villa of Diomedes, and the Villa Regina in Boscoreale with the Antiquarium. 

So, purchase your tickets online and step back in time with an optional audioguide to take a self-guided tour of the ruins. 

Stroll through the temples of Venus, Apollo, and Jupiter, baths, and amphitheaters, and view Hellenistic places like the Houses of the Faun.

Take advantage of your multilingual audio guide: English, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, German, and French.
