No words can express my visit here so I would just suggest that you go and see for yourself. A dream of mine to go and it was truly worth it.

A step back in time... not to be missed!
May 2021 • Couples
Visiting Pompeii was for us an unforgettable experience. This is one of the few places in the world where you can step back in time and see how life looked thousands of years ago.

The site is huge - with a tour you can get a good picture of the area in 2 hours, but you can also easily spend the whole day wondering around.

Not to be missed on your visit to Naples/Amalfi!

Amazing visit - no crowds - go now.
May 2021 • Couples
Visited this Fascinating archeological site today 9th June 2021. It was fully open and there were no queues. Tickets were €16 each and booking is only required at the weekend.

Booked an official private guide “Joe” at the entrance for €120 and he was brilliant - spent around 3-4 hours with him and I can’t imagine doing the site without some form of guide. PM for details. It was incredibly quiet and quite breathtaking in parts. One of the benefits of Covid = no crowds. (See photos) apparently it’s normally v busy at this time of year! Would 100% recommend. Don’t forget to tip your guides people.

Surprised by the level of Destruction
Jul 2020
Pompeii was destroyed in 79 AD After many years the area of Pompeii & Herculaneum was cleaned up. After the cleanup, a great many papers were found that have provided a view into the day of a person before 79 AD. Many books have been generated on this topic.

I was surprised by the level of destruction in that a great deal of the cities remained in tact after the were cleaned out. I was expecting the remains to be like being in the path of a hurricane My understanding was that Pompeii was leveled when Mount Vesuvius exploded. You could say that the Romans were great builders.

Meh, wasn't all that.
Jun 2020 • Couples
Ever since I was a child, learning about Vesuvius in history class, I dreamt that one day I would visit Pompeii. A visit to Naples presented me with this opportunity and boy oh boy was I excited. Maybe because of how excited I was, and the lack of research I did, I was always going to be underwhelmed. Underwhelmed would have been welcomed in this instance, because I came away feeling dissapointed, bored beyond the realms of earth, and frustrated that I wasted a full day of my life wandering around every corner that alienated me to feel like I was in the film Ground hog day. I'm not being funny, but other than the main attractions, how many times can you see houses and people pumice covered - many, many times is the answer. I didn't expect the site of Pompeii to be the size of Huddersfield either. It's basically Huddersfield, frozen in time, but super hot. It's big!! And a lot of the same. Use a day of your time wisely, and spend it elsewhere. P.s they have a McDonald's in the nearby modern Pompeii. Best bit of the trip.

The park is huge, so be prepared to walk, bring a bottle of water and wear comfortable shoes, but all these efforts are rewarded by the beauty of this archaeological site, consider spending at least 3/4 hours inside

"POMPEII IS A OPEN BOOK FILL WITH ABUNDANCE OF KNOWLADGE"
Mar 2020
During our Italy trip we visited Pompeii on our last day .It was the most ancient and extraordinary archeological park I ever had visited . Even though this eruption happened long time ago they were still able to preserve the old cultural and archeological look . We visited there in middle of afternoon and managed to cover a lot of area. When I visited Pompeii I was very surprised to see how ancient human kind build this amazing and creative place without using latest technology. They were unimaginably talented. We saw lot of sculptures which resembles roman mythology. There were sculptures like Minerva, Jupiter, Apollo and extra. Not only that we also saw how people were protecting their selves from eruption. It gave me feeling of sad and pity .At last I am very happy to say I learned lot of things and gained lot of experience.

I absolutely loved this experience. I would recommend it to all types of travelers.

Pompeii is easily accessible by train. Naples and it's surroundings does get quite warm in summer so I would suggest bringing a hat and sunscreen.

Place to visit (guide recommended)
Sep 2020
The place is really gorgeous but it is also very big and visiting without a guide could be scattered. So I recommend choosing a guided tour and selecting one based on the duration you prefer. I selected a tour on getYourGuide (specifically the tour is "Pompeii and Vesuvius Group Tour from Naples by PNS") that includes a visit of about two and a half hours. For me it was just enough, I would have preferred to stay at least an hour longer because, if accompanied by a good guide, you could fully enjoy this beautiful place without it getting frustrating.
