To this site. This is a remarkable experience. My first trip for school was very interesting and supported by a guide. This trip was supported by the audioguide. I was not as pleased with experience due to the audioguide pick up and drop off. I...More

We were lucky that we did this tour in the early part of the day as it got to 38 degrees. Our guide, Vincenzo, was great and gave us an enthusiastic commentary.

O.K. I'm kind of a cultural wasteland so you might not want to pay much attention to this. I first went to Pompeii in 1972 with a group and it really stuck in my mind as "awesome". I remember the "frozen" people in the streets...More

I recommend getting tickets in advance from a company like Viator and also getting a guided tour as they will show you highlights. They are well worth the extra expense. Don’t try to navigate the site on your own with a map... More
