Home of the world's most famous volcanic disaster when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 A.D., Pompeii is now a significant archeological site that provides an amazing glimpse into the daily life of an average Roman town over two thousand years ago.

Could be better. Sounds and music are a bit cheesy. It would have been much more interesting to listen to our guide if we were able to hear her. Not there yet!

This is one of those places one has to visit just to be able to say I've been there. It's a very large area with ruins of houses and official buildings as well as gardens and an amphitheatre. It shows how advanced the urban designers...More

Pompeii itself is fascinating, hot as hell in the summer so be prepared and the line--just astonishing lack of organization by the Italian authorities: one person selling tickets. One. In a non-shaded area. Even if you pre-buy tickets you must wait in this long line,...More

We visited the attraction without a guide but it was still very enjoyable. The site is pretty well preserved, think of it as a T-Rex pieced back together. I enjoyed the historic paintings which I assumed were the originals. The surrounding area is extremely tourist-y...More

I didn't see any signs that said 'no dogs/ pets allowed. Also I just checked a few posts saying pets are allowed. So I guess you could. Best luck

Definitely Pompeii. We did not use a tour as we arrived later in the afternoon and simply looked around on our own and took pictures. We received a map at the entrance and had particular destinations in mind that we wanted... More

I decided after I was in the ruins to leave and come back. I asked for a wristband before I left and one was provided without hassle.
