Travelers talk about
Pompeii is what I define a dynamic museum: a knowledgeable visit is not the mathematic sum of single monuments, but the way they interact with each other in order to perceive and experience the daily life of the ancient inhabitants.

We never take a guided tour.... and if you’re the same, for once invest in a tour guide. But not anyone - Alex is the best! Very knowledgeable and interacted with our children throughout the tour. Asks more questions rather than just talks at you....More
