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!

Pompei
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…

    Ivan was amazing and extremely knowledgeable! The amount of history learned in our tour was so much yet he explained it in a way it was very easy to understand. Highly recommend this tour.

    Paola was a wonderful tour guide, we learned so much in a very short period of time because of her. Pompeii is also an unreal subject matter, a snap shot into life 2000 years ago

    Great tour with great insights. It makes the visit to the Pompei much more meaningful and there are a lot of new things to learn about the place. I highly suggest other tourists to take a tour, especially with Emlilano when visiting Pompei

    Excellent tour! Julia was our guide and she was fantastic! Super peppy and passionate about archeology. She gave lots of detailed information about the history of Pompeii, the lives of the people, the city, and cultural times. She gave descriptions and stories that really helped you to visualize what it was like back then and made you feel like you were there. In addition, she gave lots of little details that you would learn just watching a history show. Also, Emiliano, Askos tour creator, went above and beyond in communication and helping us. We also did the tour of Herculaneum with Askos Tours (which was the best tour we’ve had in 3 countries) as well as hired a private car transport (which made it all so easy and was so worth it). So glad we booked these tours!!! The Askos tours are a must!!!!

    Abbiamo visitato Pompei con Michele, un archeologo appassionato che ci ha riportato alla vita di 2000 anni fa. Consiglio assolutamente questa visita guidata così da comprendere appieno la città e poter in seguito avventurarsi da soli e comprendere bene ciò che si incontra. Michele è stato puntuale, molto competente ed i suoi racconti rapportati ai giorni nostri assolutamente interessanti. Il tour è partito anche se eravamo pochi ed è stato possibile seguirlo anche se con una bimba di 21 mesi.

    Sergio was knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. He knew the highpoints to visit (the site is too large to see everything). We learned a lot, and can easily recommend this tour to others. As well, it was very reasonably priced. Thank you!
