This temple is in the centre of the tourist "must see" list. The original statues are in the museum in Naples, but the replicas will do. To see Vesuvius in the background makes for good photographs.

With Vesuvius as it's backdrop, the Temple of Apollo stands on the northern edge of the Forum. Built before the Roman occupation, there remains an altar placed in front of steps leading to the shrine. Statues of Apollo and Diana face each other - these are copies of the originals which are housed in the Naples Museum. Let your imagination... More

This site as the whole archeological area of Pompeii is really wonderful. The Temple of Apollo is dedicated to the Greek and Roman god Apollo in the ancient Roman. Facing the north side of the town, it is the town's most important religious building and has very ancient origins. The cult of Apollo, imported from Greece, was very widespread in... More

The Temple of Apollo is located right at the entrance on the left hand side, this temple has not been preserved well apart from column here and there which is being restored, but at one time this might have been a beautiful temple where justice was administered, graffiti has been found on the walls inside of this building. There is... More

The Temple is near the main entrance, and sits on one side of the forum. So, you are going to see it when you stand on the forum grounds. There are a number of columns remaining along with a few other features, but not much else left to see. It is a good part of the experience, but far from... More

One of the first ruins you see when you enter the site. Interesting but not that impressive to me. With all of the other things to see at Pompeii, I wouldn't spend more than ten minutes at this temple.

Located not far from the central Pompeian Forum, what remains of this gigantic area which was once the famous temple of Apollo, some columns and little else, unfortunately it hasn't been well preserved over the centuries but it is partially visible and interesting spots to visit , including the bronze statue of Apollo placed exactly in front of the temple.

Again, you need a portable audio guide (available for rent at the entrance). I do not recommend a personal guide. He/she will rush you through the sites. Much better (and cheaper) to rent a portable audio-0gide from the front of the main entrance

Parts of this site go back to the 6th century B. C., but most of what you see today is from the 2nd century B. C. The location was chosen to be in a prime spot directly off the main Forum. The temple site is in fair condition today, apparently thanks to a lot of restoration as evidenced in the... More
