This was one on the top o our list to see and didn't disappoint. Was good to have a guide to show us certain things that I am sure we would have missed if we had wandered on our own. Amazing what they have found here - it has been a beautiful old town with great architecture. Don't miss it.

Everything about this tour was wonderful. City Center tours ( formally Dark Rome tours), greeted us at the meeting point, loaded up the buses and we were off. Anna and Allesandra, our guides, were knowledgeable and eager to answer questions. Once in Pompeii, they accompanied us on the tour led by a local man who passed on more information about... More

Great exploring Pompeii, but once you reach the Forum, you've arrived. Look beyond the people to see everything from 2000 years ago, Can't miss.

This forum is the highlight of visiting Pompeii. Once you have walked through the escavated town you are struck by the beauty of the forum. A must see.

We took a one day tour from Rome which included bus trip and the guided tour, would totally recommend taking one of such tours versus driving yourself or taking train as it is stress free. At the forum without a guide it is nothing but some old ruins. Forum gives you a glimpse of the life there and their culture... More

We explored the Forum with a guided tour for about two hours - this was great. But in hindsight we both agreed that we would've like to have stayed at the Forum after the tour had ended (we couldn't because we had something else booked). So I recommend doing some reading and if you think you could spend more than... More

Hard to imagine that this was once a bustling square, the center of daily activities in ancient Pompeii. What is left is a vast space and remainders of massive columns that once supported grand temples and public buildings. The artwork at least breaks up the expanse of the forum grounds.

The forum is what we know today as the town square. It it a large open area where the locals used to meet to sell their goods, do business or just hang out. It is surrounded by large columns. The fact that the columns are as intact as they are today is truly amazing.

This is a focal point of ancient Pompeii. We can only imagine how bustling this area once was when the disaster happening . So much history right before our eyes. I definitely recommend touring with a guide.
