The forum is such an impressive place to imagine how Pompei was like the problem is that every tourist and every group collides here making it quite stressful. See it quickly and find a quieter place and there are many

We spent seven hours wandering the site and still did not see all of it. You can avoid the large tour groups of your keep to the edges of the site until mid-afternoon when the tour groups start to leave.

Even with all the years of excavations they still have so much to go. But what they did find is just amazing. I found that without our guide we would not have understood half of what we saw. It was a very hot day but...More

It is hard to imagine what this would have looked like before the eruption, but if you can get hold of one of the books that show you a re-construction, you can see how magnificent it was.

Visiting Pompeii is soooo cool. Walking around the town is something you don’t want to miss. Everything is preserved so nicely.

Listening to Pink Floyd in the arena. Has to be done. A lovely place to sit and wonder at it all. The arena entrance is also handy for the town centre and has a car park nearby.

Absolutely, they are everywhere. I think the average price was around €100 (about $130). They claim to get you around the ruins in around 2 hours. We didn't use them and would recommend you don't. There is so much to see... More
