This temple is located in the area of Teatro Grande and Piccolo. Named after the great goddess of Egypt, i.e. Isis, this sacred object is very well preserved. The cult of Isis was at the times one of the most popular cults in Pompeii. As we've seen before in the other temples, here in Pompeii, this one was also built... More

You can easily miss this as tours dont go by this building. Having said that, if you are using the audo guide and the map, it should be pretty easy to get to this. A must see and interesting to know that Egyptian gods were associated with in Italy..

The Temple of Isis, which is an Egyptian God associated with the Nile River, is one of the more preserved buildings in Pompeii. An inscription says it was rebuilt after the 62 AD earthquake which is probably why. It once contained great decorations but they were removed and placed in the Naples Archaeological Museum. Easy to miss right behind the... More

The Tempio is one of the many building to see when in Pompeii. There will never be enough time to see all there is to see in Pompeii. There are too many layers of history, too much that you could explore.

Everything about the Pompeii tour is exciting with each relic revealing a little more detail of everyday life. The cobbled streets and carefully restored history give us a glimpse in the day of the everyday Roman.

Most temples in pompeii are completely destroyed, this one atleast still stands from centuries. Behind the walls the area is mostly closed due to restoration.

Each of the sights at Pompeii are so special from the perspective of preserving history of everyday life in the ancient city. The Isis Temple is back by the Theater an obscured by a brick wall, but you'll find it. Then you'll wonder why Pompeii had a temple to worship an Egyptian God? Very worldly and cosmopolitan civilization. ...

It is easy to miss the Tempio d'Iside (Temple of Isis) as it is not out in the open as the other temples are. It is behind a tall brick wall. There is no entry fee, but if you don't purposefully seek it out, you may miss it. Though my friend and I were at Pompei with a tour, the... More
