Unfortunately it was crowed with tourists and almost impossible to get nice pictures. Our tour guide stopped here only briefly, I am sure there was much more to say about the forum. I would recommend getting the audio guide and enjoying this site at your leisure. Do bring shade!

Incredible to walk around the ruins of Pompei, you can almost feel what it might have been like before the eruption. It is easy to get around and the guide map has all the imajor buildings and areas, with suggested tours around temples, gates and villas. Has a great view from the North wall toward the Porta Stabia.

Very well preserved ruins, with a spectacular view of Vesuvius in the background. Bring water with you as it is very hot there in the summer.

hard to believe that this town was buried under lava and now we have an opportunity to be so close to the historic monuments. Really enjoyed our time there.

At the Forum, Pompeii Italy, we discovered that there was nothing new under the sun, the ancient people that build Pompeii they have actually thought about everything in the way and needs of life, they had everything of the luxury that we have today

The Forum, the Coliseum and Palatino Hill can all be seen in one day. We started with a Coliseum and Palatino Hill tour which took about two hours after the tour which leave you off the middle of Palatine Hill you are on your own and should walk up the steps to the top of the hill for the most...

This was a two story structure, the size of several soccer fields. It had a wooden roof at one time, the ash took care of that. Very impressive

It's uniquely beautiful and everything is well reserved. An ideal place for photo shooting and if you love watching sunset, here it is.

Amazing, one of the highlights of my visit to Pompeii Scavi. You shouldn't miss it, a window to the past, to a tragedy. Thank you Italy for preserving it for the enjoyment of humanity.

went after we toured coliseum. Wonderful walk thru history, which adds to the coliseum visit. Worth a stop, buy a combined ticket for both places.
