Apollo statue preserved. Big columns. Easy to find but not identified. You can notice the dimension of the city.

The Temple of Apollo dedicated to the Greek and Roman god Apollo. It has very ancient origins. The cult of Apollo, imported from Greece, was very widespread in Campania, and is attested in Pompeii since the 6th century BC. The temple, in the center of a sacred enclosure, was surrounded on all four sides by a wide series of tuff... More

Beautiful remnants of the original structure. All original bronzes and statues are in the museum so only replicas remain. The area is fenced off but you can peer between the Iron bars to see what you can see, one of the statues is clear, visible, one is not. An important god this is rather elaorate.

Fantastic day out for both young and old...I would suggest taking a guided tour so they can explain what your viewing and giving the story behind what your looking at. I would also read up about what happend to the city so it makes more sense to you when looking round. We spent two hours here and it certainly was... More

This is probably not the most preserved place in pompeii but certainly one the most beautiful and that is so because you can see the mount vesuvius in the background. One can then imagine what would have led to this catastrophe in 78AD that the whole settlement got buried. Large and long pillars are a treat to see in this... More

Located on the western edge of the Forum, it was quite easy to find. There were a couple of replica statues located here amongst the columns so you could get the feel of what this was once like. Quite impressive!

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
