Plan to spend at least one full day here, two would be better. Take a water bottle, there are several places to refill the water bottle. Wear sturdy walking shoes, the roads are very uneven. Don’t even think about not seeing this, if you are...More
The archeological Park is incredible but very large and there is little signage to assist you to find your way around. The audio guides we purchased ($13 Euro for 2) were very disappointing, little information provided and they are not updated when certain sites are...More
Sorrento Limo who was transferring us from the Naples train station to Positano, set up a private 2-hour tour for my husband and me before dropping us off in Positano. This was second time seeing the ruins and my husband's first visit. Our tour guide,...More
It is truly amazing to walk through the city that was buried in 79AD by Mount Vesuvius. We were on a cruise and scheduled a private tour to see the sites and had a few things on the agenda for the day with the Pompeii...More
Travelled from Naples to Pompei by taxi. This place was very calm peaceful but very sad, the work done here and which is still on going is amazing. An experince never to be forgotten. Travelled onto Sorrento , the cost of the trip was €250...More

Ticket box opens at 9am, so it is best to go first in the morning, so you don’t have to wait too long to get in.
There is free apps you can download, which you can listen to audio guide on each section.
I recommend getting tickets in advance from a company like Viator and also getting a guided tour as they will show you highlights. They are well worth the extra expense. Don’t try to navigate the site on your own with a map... More
I recommend getting tickets in advance from a company like Viator and also getting a guided tour as they will show you highlights. They are well worth the extra expense. Don’t try to navigate the site on your own with a map. We did. Big mistake. There is a place to eat and you can get sandwiches and drinks there. Outside the site are some lovely restaurants as well. Enjoy and spend the day. Well worth it.
