The scale of the ruins is mind boggling. To view the full of it will take more than a day. We did a 2 hour walking tour, in which they showed us the highlights of it. We went on a very sunny day so it was very difficult to walk in too much heat. But those who can walk for... More

When my boyfriend and I wanted to visit the ancient city of Pompeii back in September, we contemplated joining an organised tour from Naples but eventually decided to go on our own. There is a very regular train - the Vesuvina - which will take you from Napoli Garibaldi to Pompei Scavi, it cost 3.20€ pp (one way) and though... More

The past six weeks we visited ruins in Athens, Thessaloniki, Corinth and Perachora, along with ancient cities and castles strewn all over eastern Europe. We booked the trip to see Pompeii before we'd seen the other ruins, so I wasn't especially excited about Pompeii by the time we arrived. Add to that Hubby's wallet being stolen on the train from...

The excavations at Pompei are easy to get to from Naples or Sorrento. There is plenty of information available locally on public transport and the site itself. My wife and I visited there in October 2016. We opted for a guided tour. The guide was knowledgeable about the site but it was difficult to keep up with the front of... More

A must see! Allow a whole day and wear comfy shoes! Take food with you as food inside is hard to find and expensive.

Visited Pompei for the day whilst staying in Naples. The train was easy to use and the historical site a short and well signed walk from the station. Admittedly I knew very little about what to expect from my visit but was pleasantly surprised. We visited the information centre in the Main Street and hired audio guides which was cheaper... More

We were told 2 hours would be enough to see the sights, how wrong this advice was! To really appreciate it, take it all in and see everything you need a full day. It was very warm when we were there but plenty of shaded areas around to catch a break. Grab a free map of the site to get... More

The Scavi di Pompei is one of the most humbling places I have ever been to. Inside, you are reminded very vividly how fragile life and human works are when pitted against forces of nature. There is a somber note that seems to cling to the air no matter where you are in the city, but also a very respectful... More
