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…

Maria Laura es muy buena guía y conoce muy bien toda la historia que rodea Pompeya, ya que es arqueóloga. Repetiría sin duda.

Guida molto simpatica, capace di trasmettere la passione per ciò che descriveva, paziente nonostante i tanti colleghi che lo erano meno, ci ha fatto immergere nella storia facendoci notare tante piccole cose che ci sarebbero sicuramente sfuggite. Consigliatissimo

We booked the german tour. We met our group at the exact spot which was described in PM before to the exact time. We got earphones to hear our guide better. He was non native german speaker but quite good understandable and really funny. Tour went for 2 hours. A bit disapointing that we had to buy extra tickets for the entrance to Pompei area which where 17.50 Euros online each. That was not described in the tour and was told after booking in PM. The tour itself was okay with some special sidenotes, but i didnt know anything about Pompei before and wished for a more general approach to the story of the eruption. In total it was a bit less information as i wished for.

Wir hatten leider Probleme mit unserem Ticket und konnten die gebuchte Tour am Vormittag nicht antreten. Emiliano war so nett und hat uns in eine spätere Gruppe aufgenommen und war sehr hilfsbereit. Der Guide war wirklich sehr gut, die Tour sehr interessant und absolut zu empfehlen!

Super visite avec Alfredo en Français à 16h45. Il faut acheter ses billets avant sur le site de Pompéii puis ensuite on se laisse guider ! Les anecdotes et l’histoire narrées par Alfredo font de ces deux heures une découvertes très plaisantes. Même en fin de journée il peut faire chaud, nous recommandons donc une bouteille d’eau, des fontaines sont sur le site et permettent de se recharger régulièrement! Nous recommandons!

We had an amazing time discovering Pompeii with our wonderful and very knowledgeable guide Anna! She made us able to visualise how everyday life in Pompeii had been and how the tragic events of the eruption occurred. We left Pompeii with lots of new knowledge and with an experience for life. Would highly recommend it!! Anna was furthermore very kind and always made sure that everybody had enough water or needed a toilet ect.
