Visited the site twice over 2 days and still were left feeling we had missed a lot .Had been to exhibition in British museum earlier in the year ,definitely helps to have an idea of how things would have looked ,there is also a book available that has images of the buildings how they were, superimposed over the ruins ...with dvd,
got it for 10 euros don't pay 25 that some stalls were asking..
Audio guides are available from main entrance,we entered from entrance near town and got audio guide from info stall.......ok for short visit but did not have info for all the site s on map. There is one fast food restaurant and toilets in the site so don't be panicked by sellers outside ,however good to carry a drink with you as site is vast.Some areas were closed for restoration or ? but so much else to see... Villa of Mysteries definitely worth the long walk and if interested in the plaster casts of the bodies the garden of fugitives as well as in one of building sin the forum.
There are 3 entrances to the site 1 at the Pompeii scavi Circumvesuviana station (travellers can leave luggage here)audio guides from this entyance and a bookshop,1 in the market square where the coaches drop off and the only entrance you can use if you have the Artecard and another along the via Roma nearest to modern Pompei and to the other Circumvexuviana station Pompei (sancturo).......10 mins walk come out of station and walk straight down road to town square take a right across front of church walk along past the market stalls where you will be encouraged to buy and entrance is at end of market stalls it has toilets but no audio guides
