This is a must place to visit. The guide we had was brilliant ! We went on an organised tour from our hotel. We would recommend you do the same if you intend to visit this incredible site. You will not be disappointed

Being a student of Geography, I was always interested in finding the interaction between people and places. This place provided me with an insight into the ancient history of people, places and their interaction. I highly recommend this if you are in Naples.

A must visit place. The sheer size is amazing - we spent 3 and a half hours here and probably only saw a quarter of the site! Lots of interesting things to see and it's great to be able to wander along the original streets....More

We spent the day touring the ruins. I would definitely recommend going with a tour guided group. They give you a lot of the background history and point you in the right direction for what is important to see. The ruins themselves are expansive. The...More
