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 venue has been expanding and improving over the years. Is shocking take them houses that inhabited the Roman makes two thousand years. Very well signposted and with guides written in several languages. Unmissable visit

  • I thought a visit to Pompeii was very interesting, however it turned out to be a wonderful experience. The city is huge and trying to go far and wide, eventually did at least 10 Km. The tour requires a minimum of 4 hours but if you can dedicate more time, the better. Step back in time travel the roads built over 2,000 years ago and notice the attention to detail as sidewalks and "crosswalks". Many buildings were destroyed and only the ruins remain, but many others have preserved good part of their glory and you can admire frescoes, mosaics, indoor gardens, rooms, colonnades and fountains. There are, in addition to private homes, bakeries, baths, temples, several amphitheaters and termopoli (and definitely forget something). Don't miss the villa of the mysteries, magnificent main square, beautiful and majestic the great amphitheatre. Exciting view of the inhabitants by surprise and immobilized in various acts, from the volcanic eruption. A must visit such a wonderful place.

  • At the time I didn't appreciate it in its fullness. On the one hand, the extreme heat, the large number of row to enter and tumults. But writing this review and have reported more on the site, it is a day trip required if they are close. By Thirteen euros (effective, cards of credit) agree to the ancient city of Pompeii, touring its cobbled streets and enter to their buildings very well preserved. There are areas that are currently closed for maintenance, which is a constant. One of the things that I blame for my 3-hour visit was the not having documented more. Undoubtedly, it is one of those sites that acquire greater symbolism and grace the more we know about them. Pompeii is part of a puzzle that the complete visitor or continues long. I encourage you to say that if we don't know anything about Pompeii, we see only ruins. Throughout Pompeii, there are public drinking fountains, coffee and buffet camouflaged among the old buildings, varied vegetation, people and even a dog petrified by lava, an amphitheater-style arena romana and interesting mosaics and frescoes.
