Got some great pictures here of the ruins with Mt. Vesuvius in the background. Just a hint of what this place would have looked like back at its height.

Part of the Pompeii architectural park, fully depicting the public life in a Roman city with exposition to Vesuvio, that burried it, but kept it preserved. An open-air museum that must be seen in a life time

This is a very large, spacious and harmonious Forum, even today when we can only see the ruins. We really enjoyed being on that spot. The remains of the colonnade around the Forum are especially inspiring, particularly where an additional upper row of columns is positioned above the first one.

In the northern part of this large rectangular space is the Temple of Jupiter, with the Honorary Arches. On the left western side is the Basilica, the Temple of Apollo and a storage area on the former Granary Market.

On the right is the beautiful Macellum, the Temple of Vespasian and the Building of Eumachia. The southern part is dominated by a bronze Centaurus, a sculpture made in XXI. century by a contemporary Polish artist, Igor Mitoraj.

Start by researching before you go as there are a lot of cons going on as you walk up. Whether you do a self tour or a guided tour, be prepared to walk - a lot! Very cool to imagine how the Romans lived right before their town got frozen in time.

One of the most intact of the free standing buildings at Pompeii, this plaza is the open meeting place for this ancient city and a must see part of any tour

Pompeii is a site to see, the ruins are stunning! But be warned, it gets hot and there is absolutely no shade so pace yourself.

We visited Rome's forum and with 3D software saw what it should be, here you can really appreciate the various areas and temples more so than Rome which is more in ruins.

We have been to Pompeii on three different trips. And each time we find new things they have uncovered. Out first visit was in 1973, and it is amazing what they have uncovered over the years. I met one of the archeologist that has worked the site for years, and is now retired, but goes back for tours,

Great glimpse into the past. I didn't realise how impressive the building must have been back in the day!

Gives you an idea of how large the community was - a real living city destroyed by mother nature. Gets busy and so much else to see. Head to this part of the city for the exit by the train.
