Whilst on a cruise in the Med, we visited Naples, we took a trip to see the amazing ruins in the former city of Pompeii. The buildings that have been excavated were amazing. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us loads of information . we could have spent 3 days there and still would probably not seen it all.... More

I would highly recommend you hire a private tour guide for this, they will be able to point out things you would not see on your own. This city is sadly fascinating. The streets are so well preserved, it feels like you are transported back in time. From the scavi, to the people in ash, to the Lupanar, Mount Vesuvius... More

We visited in early June, so would love to go back at a less busy time! We had a tour guide which helped, but would love to go again with a guide and then go... More

Took the train to Pompeii, which was easy to do, and once there did the audio tour. Excellent site, very interesting and a must visit!

Pompeii is amazing! It look us 7 hours. But this was also because there were quite a few rain showers. There is a cafe near the forum in the middle of Pompeii and I would recommend this as a good rest area when you need to refuel and keep going... Don't bother with the guided tours, the audio guide gives... More

This was my second time in Pompeii and I must say even while seeing it the second time, the place didn't lose its charm. We spent a large part of the day walking around the ruined city trying to see as much as possible of what's left of this once great city. It is a huge place though so before... More

I have been wanting To visit Pompei for yrs And it was soooo worth it!! It was hot, yes, but we managed a great deal of the site with two tired children in tow. Ideally we would have split the day into 2 visits, as we ran out of steam before the end, but we had promised the kids an... More

Having viewed this ancient site, with loads of work still to be done to uncover the vast amount of ruins it was humbling and stunning to visit this site, and to see an ancient city was amazing. There is so much to see, almost too much to see and we used the maps and the booklet provided, this was great... More
