  • Is the only facility for projecting the prosperity of the city of Pompeii of 2,000 years ago. The street will be found from this. As major of the horse-drawn carriage as a cart, wagon road, would have made it a resting place and watering hole. Why not runaway speed limits to protect at the trail or partition there all over the place. I was impressed with the life skills.

  • Main route of the Pompei antifua, connecting the Forum with the spaces of distraction to the edge of the town, as the circus and the slaves and Gladiators gyms. There are various taverns and other very interesting remains along hundreds of meters

  • This is one of the main routes of Pompeii, as well as other streets, is very nice, it has a swimming pool with a beautiful faucet. The streets are high, with round stones, which makes it difficult to walk by them. What caught my attention is that in some parts there are some large stones to cross into the other lane, who knows what things circulating in the streets that could not step on...

  • ***SCAM WARNING*** Pompeii is great. But mind the scammers at the train station shop that will straight-up lie to you to cause you to pay extra and buy an unwanted tour. We specifically asked; they specifically lied. Walk PAST the (official-looking) "ticket office" at the station, down and to the left along the stone wall, to get your €13 normal entrance ticket. Please repost the info in this review to stop them from scamming others. #ITALY
  • Pompeii is one of those places that you are going to visit regardless of the reviews because of its rich history. But as the local guide said below be aware of scammers that are rampant. As soon as you get off the circumvesuviana train you are greeted with a official looking info spot but really it's a front of a private tour company that may not even be an official licensed one (the real info guide location is to the left after you walk to the street from the train and they told us that the other company is not licensed. If you want to do Vesuvius it's not a bad company but be aware that their transportation costs 12 euros and you will pay another 10 for the ticket to go up to the top. Again, not the worst but the local bus may be cheaper and comes often enough that it may be worth while. The company outright lies about the audio guides that are available at the Pompeii site and said their guide was an archeologist but I have no idea how you'd figure that out to be true or not. Buy the ticket for Pompeii at the site or online beforehand. There are some tour guides you can get at the place if you go there early enough. We went late so there wasnt any tour guide. We did get the audio guide and map which are incredibly thorough, you could get a good amount out of that. On a side note the audio guide is actually a playstore app so you could buy it and keep it instead of paying 6 or 7 euros to rent the Huawei phone with the app loaded. Wear a hat and sunscreen, have plenty of water available and about half a day to get enough out of it to make it worth your time. I rated it 3 stars because a lot of the sites in the audio guide were closed off to the public which ruined it a bit. If you have more time you can hope to cover a lot more of the place but it's pretty big and it may not be worth a whole day. All the guide books have info on the regular circumvesuviana train which is a cheap way to get to the site from Naples or from Sorrento. They also mention the danger of getting robbed, we saw at least three thieves attempting to steal on the train but thankfully they weren't able to get anything and left. Alternatively there is a new train called the Campania express thst goes between Naples and Sorrento and stops are Eurculeo (sp?) And Pompeii. We didn't see this at the train station in Naples and so didn't know to take it. It does cost a little more (I think maybe 6 euros from naples to Pompeii?). However this also means you don't stop up to 14 times before getting to Pompeii and they don't let anyone on without a ticket which means the local thief won't easily just slip on and off. It's not crowded and the AC actually works. For peace of mind I would definitely take this next time.
  • Very large decimated ancient city of Pompeii. You can spend an entire day walking the streets, looking at the innovation, beauty and incredible preservation and restoration. Many frescoes and antiquities are very much intact. Some modern art mixed in. You can easily see Mt Vesuvius in the distance which was responsible for freezing the city in time with ash and rocks. Is a must see and can be a great full day excursion from Rome via a tour.
  • Went here a few years ago, and found it incredible. I have recently been there again, but found it's full of modern artwork and statues that are scattered around the place, and made to look like original pieces. It's difficult now to see what is real of the time, and what is modern artwork. This was a 5 star place for me in the past, now, due to the confusion aspect, I can't give it more than 2. For most people going there for the first time, the artwork looks to be real statues, and people are queuing up to get their photos taken with these pieces, thinking they are original. Look out for the tiny plaques dictating their age.
  • Loved it and great prices. We went in July (Very hot) so everywhere was hot. Also, this is high tourist time so everything is crowded.
