Not sure if this was one of the least crowded areas we were in while in Pompeii because it was one of the first area we covered (although when we circled back later in the day, it was still not that packed) or if just not a lot of people walk through this space. This was one of the areas... More

First of all would not expect tombs to be peaceful but everything is so beautiful you just enjoy every second of it. It was very cool as well because some of the tombs were just incredible. Was with my Italian uncle and translated some Latin on the tombs so it made it much more interesting.

This street links the main ruins to the house of mystery. It is interesting to walk along but you get a great view of it if you take the path to the side which leads to a higher level.

The Vie Della Tombe leads away from Pompeii city center toward the Villa of Misteri. This street lined with monumental tombs provides a glimpse of many forms of Greek and Roman funerary architecture with altars, mausoleums and temples. Along the way there are faucets to refill your water bottles and some shady spaces to sit and rest.

Some impressive tombs and,oddly a peaceful place to rest after walking around the ruins. Look out for very pretty green lizards that scurry around (harmless).

Eerie place. Fascinating too. To think that those buried there died before the 79 eruption is fascinating.
