Gli Scavi Archeologici di Pompei, Pompeii

(4.4/5 based on 13,000+ reviews on the web)
Gli Scavi Archeologici di Pompei, a World Heritage site, was once a thriving Roman city. The famous cataclysmic eruption of the nearby Mount Vesuvius in 79 CE destroyed it, as well as nearby Herculaneum, Stabiae, Oplontis and part of Boscoreale. When the volcano erupted, the entire settlement was covered with a deep layer of ash. Nearly 3,000 people died that day, and the ash quickly settled, preserving the city in almost its original state. Today, this is an open-air museum of the everyday life as it must have been when the ancient Roman civilization flourished here. Among the thousands of objects perfectly preserved by ash are ceramic pots, jewelry, furniture, and frescoes.

  • The ruins of the ancient city. Suggest a rather sombre melancholy. There are "the same" charred body. The whole city is in front of you. Seems to be the most beautiful city in the past. Move either guide or tour. More to learn.

  • An amazing archaeological site. Well preserved. As it was an off season visit it was not crowded and the weather was sunny and cool. Just perfect. There is a lot to see if you seriously want to cover ...  more »
  • 整座龐貝古城非常大,若是認真走完需要一整天。有提供中文導覽,且導覽非常詳盡,會發給每個人一張地圖,建議先找出自己想看的地方然後認真聽導覽,否則到後面都在走馬看花⋯ 遊客中心的披薩很好吃,肚子餓可以在這邊果腹,但副餐的薯條又乾又硬。二樓有提供免費廁所,記得上完再離開!  more »
