Interesting History, Imagining what took place 2,000 years ago. worth seeing, didn’t care for the Walking Tour. Enjoyed seeing yr but the Walking Tour was boring and a waste of money... we may have had a bad guide but I think the audio tour -...More
The site of Pompeii is easily accessible via train. From Naples Garibaldi station follow the sign posts for the Circumvesuviana line, the cost of a return (Naples Garibaldi - Pompei Scavi) is about 6 Euros.

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.
Really hot day with no shade did not hamper us from wandering around this historic site with interest. We did not do a guided tour or use an audio guide but simply followed around all the major sites whilst listening to Rick Steves guide on...More

Glad I booked tickets online before we arrived as queue was long. You jump the queue if already purchased and only paid an extra 3 euros for the privilege. Tickets 15 Euro each. Well worth it. If travelling from Sorrento it is very easy on...More

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.
Amazing place if you are interested in history and especially the Romans. So much has been preserved. Highly recommend a guide to get the most out of the day. Half day gives a good feel for the place, but you need a full day to...More

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. We did. Big mistake. There is a place to eat and you can get sandwiches and drinks there. Outside the site are some lovely restaurants as well. Enjoy and spend the day. Well worth it.
