“One of those things you have to see!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

This is ground zero for anyone interested in antiquity, Roman culture in particular. Allow +2hrs. and really take your time to see the detail and let it all sink in. Bring a good guide book, or better, a good guide, to focus your attention and obtain more value.

“More ruins of ancient times...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Walking through the ruins of the Forum id like stepping back in time- if you have the imagination to put yourself there. It is necessary to visit this site on your Roman.

“Very picturesque!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Unbelievable to see Mount Vesuvius in the background and you wonder about the horrors when the forum was hit by all that.

So hard to describe what an absolutely amazing piece of history surrounding the ruins of Pompeii and how they discovered it existed! This must go on every travellers bucket list!
