I can't possibly describe the effect the ruins had on me. I spent the four and a half hours in total awe, the paintings were like wall paper and the colours after all this time so vivid. Highly recommended.

If you are interested in Roman history, this is definitely one to add on to your list. So many fascinating aspects of it and also easy to get to on the train.

The recuperation of this site , buried for centuries under several meters of ash, is amazing. Walk past street food vendors, bakeries. Stroll through wealthy pompeian's houses with their pools and wall paintings.

I recommend getting tickets in advance from a company like Viator and also getting a guided tour as they will show you highlights. They are well worth the extra expense. Don’t try to navigate the site on your own with a map... More
