I have seen a lot of Roman ruins in different countries, but I do have to say that Pompeii is one of the most spectacular. First of all, the sheer size of the city is just amazing, and then when you see all of the details of daily life that were preserved by the eruption you will be amazed again. Be prepared to walk your legs off, and bring some water with you because it can get pretty hot.
Beautifully preserved remains of part of the roman city. Beautiful mosaics, and marble tops, and stunning wall paintings. A free guide book available which is very informative. We got entry for free as we attended on the first sunday of the month.
The city of Pompeii with Mount Vesuvius looming over the ruins it created in 79 AD. The ruins of Pompeii are all that’s left of this magnificent city, equipped with theaters, bath houses, brothels, running water even take away food restaurants. It is incredible to see the sophisticated society that once boomed here. Local tour guides can be booked online through a simple google search. Some tours even combine the best activities of Naples. I did a hike up amount Vesuvius in the morning, paired with the ruins of Pompeii in the afternoon, with an included Pizza lunch between of course!
Great place to explore the history and architecture of the ancient Romans. Pairs great with a trip the Archaeological Museum in Naples to see some of the real artifacts.
