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.
