Another temple among many of Pompeii, perhaps no the best of all this is not well preserved, all that remains is a small altar and a colonnade bearing witness to what once would have been a beautiful temple. Anyway, enjoy the stunning view all over.

I would definitely recommend this B&B. It has all the elements that a traveler on a budget needs but with much added value. Great hosts!
