Travel guide to Pompei
Ruins of Pompei
Ruins of Pompei
The site of ancient POMPEII is located 24km South of Naples. Allow yourself at least 4 hours to explore this 2000 years old ruins and let Pompeii reveal the secrets of the ancient Roman life, frozen in time, in a city covered by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD.

With the aid of your map, make stops at the baths, House of Mosaic Atrium, House of Vetti, House of the Faun, House of Poseidon, villas, market place (Macellum) temples, amphitheatre and the Grand Theatre.

A must do is visiting the ancient brothels. You will learn quite a bit about how decadent life was in this city from the pornographic artwork on the walls. As you walk through the streets of Pompeii, you will see Mount Vesuvius at the back drop as if it is looming over you. The last eruption was in 1944 and you will find yourself looking over your shoulders at it, worrying when next it will erupt and will people 2,000 years from now be looking at a cast of your lava encrusted corpse, caught in a sudden eruption!
