City Wonders’ Tours

The tour company, City Wonders has been providing insightful and entertaining tours across Europe’s most stunning cities for almost 15 years. They began in 2004 with one tour aimed at introducing travelers to a different side of Italy’s capital: the Dark Heart of Rome. Founder and CEO, Simone Gozzi wanted to show Rome in a new light and was passionate about giving travelers an incredible, memorable experience in the Eternal City. This simple premise sparked the essence of City Wonders: “Yes” to smaller groups, exclusive customer benefits, exceptional guides, and excellent customer service. “No” to over-crowded, generic tours with sub-standard guides and long waits in line.

This simple formula worked so well they expanded across Rome and throughout Italy to Florence, Milan, Venice, Naples, and Sorrento. There are now even City Wonders tours in London, Paris, and Barcelona.

I’m looking forward in October to finding out how City Wonders has achieved thousands of 5-star reviews and has become the most-booked tour company in the world on TripAdvisor!

I’ll be going on City Wonder’s Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius Day Trip from Rome, so it’s safe to say I’m pretty excited. Pompeii was an ancient Roman city in Italy which was buried under 4 to 6 m of volcanic ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. Many of the inhabitants were also buried before they could escape.

I’ve been promised a tour group of 25 people or less and getting to explore the wonders of Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius in the 13 hour day trip. The  Pompeii Day Trip from Rome includes an authentic Neapolitan pizza lunch and round-trip transport. As well as an official local guide in Pompeii, there will be an expert, English-speaking tour coordinator to entertain guests on the way to and from Rome.

Keep an eye out for the review and on our social media sites in October to follow the trip.
