There won't be a single person among you who won't find something to love about Pompeii. Architecture, archeology, history, art and literature buffs will be enthralled by this work-in-progress living museum. A Unesco World Heritage Site (never been disappointed with one of these!), the site allows for endless exploration. Be sure to allow 3+hours and consider reserving a guide to... More

The forum (what we would call the town square) was just that, the place for people to meet and to purchase their food supplies 2000-years ago. You could simply imagine the daily file in that ancient civilization.

This was a city daily life center, surrounded by the most significant buildings like temples, hall of justice, business center and market.

Was kind of spoiled for me by the modern art garbage display laying all over the forum at various sites. Why you would pollute an ANCIENT world heritage site by allowing some "artist" to litter the scenery up with impressionist trash is beyond me.

I do not know what to say, the foum is incredible as it fits into the entire story of Pompeii. You cannot miss all the parts of Pompeii when in Italy

Pompei is a fascinating place, I do recommend getting a guide. We had the audio guide and it was very difficult to get the hang on you had to click on each area to hear about it but no where told you where you were and it was all miss matched so we just had to walk around and hope... More

This large open area was once the very centre of Pompeii, with important buildings all around including the basilica, temples, baths and open market areas. Very little remains of the buildings in this area, but it is still evocative and impressive

Part of Pompeii and you can't miss it. Should not have its own entry on TripAdvisor. It's interesting for scale and understanding of roman town design but nothing much on its own. It needs to be viewed in context

It was the best I loved the ruins and seeing all the statutes walking and discovering painting on the walls the floors where the carts would go thru.
