  • This was the main road of the ancient city of Pompeii. Super interesting, and almost impossible to visit place.

  • Shops, workshops ... Pompeii was alive and walking this which is one of the main streets you will see for yourself.

  • The Via dell'abbondanza is Pompeii's lower decumanus. The name comes from a bas-relief that decorates a fountain placed in the initial section close to the hole. The road connects in his long path leading cores of the city between the hole and the Sarno gate, such as the Forum, the Stabian baths, theatres, the Temple of ISIS and the amphitheatre. Brought to light at the beginning of this century is still rich of its decorations, why is the most lively in the visit to the excavations. Along it are many of the most beautiful houses, some with two floors; These are dwellings of the rich bourgeoisie pompeiana, such as House of the cryptoportico, la, House of the chaste lovers, House of Julius Polybius, House of Loreius Tiburtinus, House of Venus in the shell and the Villa of Julia Felix.

  • Yesterday we made our way to Pompeii from Naples. What's important that when you are at Garibaldi Station you go downstairs to Line 2. The train that runs from Naples to Pompeii goes from Line 2 Platform 3 and End station is Sorrento cost a few Euros - you can buy your return ticket there. Reason why I mention this is because it took us a long time to get this info. Try for an early train, the site opens at 9am and the lines are huge, earlier you go the better. For 2 people we paid 30EUR. The site is huge, need good shoes and a drink. Take a hat and sunglasses as it gets very hot. We had a lovely time, downloaded a guide book and used that - was very informative and told the story of Pompeii. Only downside is I really wanted to see The Garden of Fugitives - and that was closed. Otherwise allow a few hours, we spent half a day and then relaxed at the outdoor canteen before the exit. Well worth the trip. Won't show you too many pictures as it's best you go see it for yourself.
  • Absolutely amazing. Nothing beats the feeling of wandering the same streets that the Romans did. It's surprisingly intact all things considered, and it's not hard to imagine the town in its heyday. You could easily spend a whole day just wandering around. I did, and I still didn't see everything!
  • Obviously this is a "must-see" in all of Italy. Aside from the obvious recommendations of getting a guide - or at least an audio one so you know what you're seeing (we tried to wing it by an online guide which was not ideal) make sure you give yourself enough time. Pompeii is an entire city, we spent three and a half hours there and barely felt we scratched the surface. Allow at least five hours in the ruins - you won't regret it. It's an amazing experience!
  • Visiting Pompeii was an absolutely stunning experience that I will keep with my for life. This is a must visit place for anyone coming to the area with an interest in ancient history. Very well preserved locations and an excellent tour throughout. Make sure you give yourself ample time to see everything.
  • You have to allow at least a full day here. AND you should also visit the museum in Naples to see what was found here. AND, if you have the time several of the other sites around here. There are more rocks here than you can shake a stick at. I think a lot is still to be understood about these ruins.
