We went to Pompeii to visit the Ancient City and we can't stop talking about it. It was a great day and a lot of learning. It's easy access from Naples by train. Easy to locate after getting off the train and the cost per person to enter is reasonable (11 euro per adult). We walked around for 3-4 hours... More

We visited from Rome on a day trip. We only allowed 4 hours for our visit, thinking it would be enough and we still didn't see everything! This is a full city or ruins. It was amazing and probably my favorite site I've visited. It is a lot of walking, but mostly flat and easy, be sure to wear good... More

As soon as I knew about my trip to Naples, I looked for this experience; is very easy to reach this place from Naples by train (circumvesuviano), you just spend 30 min and you will be there; I took a very long walk (3 hrs) to cover almost 70% of the site, for 2 reasons, 1st I arrived in the...

We visited Naples, from Rome, for a day trip to Pompeii. It was so much more than I expected. It truly was an entire city. It is huge. We had allotted about 5-6 hours for our visit and probably needed the entire day. It is very interesting and the guide book they give you with admission was amazing!

Pompeii Did you know... - That the 3 stones on the ground were stepping stones for the pedestrians all while allowing horse carriage wheels to pass because the inner passage was the sewage system! Yew! Yet Wow also! - The richer homes had dark ceramic on the ground with smaller white ceramic circles throughout the floor so when nightfall came... More

This was a day trip for us from Rome that we almost didn't do. That would have been a mistake. If you are a historian of any kind, do not miss this. Walking the streets of a 2000 year old city so well preserved by the ash from Mount Vesuvius you see the bakery, or the Doctor's home. Beautiful Forum,... More

Pompeii is one of those places that you should be obligated to visit at least once in a lifetime. History, culture, heritage....all in one impressive scenario with the always attractive Vesuvio volcano in the background. Getting to Pompeii is quite easy. We got there by car from Naples, and there is no excuse to get lost, as there are plenty... More

We visited in January, so were able to explore with no crowds. Due to the cold (one of the chilliest days we were in Italy, about 40 F with the wind) there were no more than a hundred people wandering through the site with us. We took our time, read through our guides, listened in on a couple tours, and... More

What a fantastic place to visit. Its hard to believe that this area was once inhabited by thousands of people and then covered over by ash for so many years. The excavation itself was a huge task and a the results for all to see are magnificent. Pompei was a highlight of our visit and when we ended up in... More

If you're in Rome or Naples, don't miss out on the fascinating day trip to one of the most ancient ruins in the world. This ones right up there with the other great ruins. The site is really something incredible considering it was buried for nearly 1700 years. The history and sites with sculptures and paintings from 2000 years ago... More
