It is unbelievable to that this civilization existed 2000 years ago, the attention to detail was amazing. The white Stones in the roads which were used as cat eyes. The site is amazing and best to take a guide. Some sad sites as well.

There is so much to see in this area, 79 AD when Vesuvius erupted and buried an entire city of industrious citizens, senators, and slaves. So much history... a definite must see.

Took excursion from cruise ship, very long line up to get in, only had 1 hr. 45 min. to literally run around, only saw maybe a 1/3. Would go back and spend a whole day and would pay to skip the line.

We all know the tragic history of Pompeii but you'll never fully understand unless you go there. When you go there, you'll see the human bodies turned into ashes and you'll be shocked by thinking how big and dangerous the mother nature can be.
