Definitely do a guided tour otherwise you're just aimlessly walking around, as good as you might think that is. Tour also lets you skip the queue, great in high season. The guides know the the best places to see and where to find shade. I...More

We visited Pompeii under our own steam from Sorrento using the packed, standing room only, Circumvesuviana train (4.90Euro return) to Pompeii Gavi. Ignore the ticket touts immediately outside the station and walk the few metres to the entrance where it is 15.00Euro to enter. The...More

Another example of where tourism has gone mad and the experience was not really enjoyable. Apart from actually being at this amazing site, there was no real enjoyment being with a large tour group. You are just part of many many tourists being herded through...More

The tour was very nice. It was several hours and there were tickets available right outside the bus stop to the tour. We did have to wait for almost an hour for the group to be large enough, but for the price the tour was...More

I never saw any signs about cameras or restrictions. But I saw no tripods either. There are many many renovations going on this year. Since you are going to be there, Add Herculeum, more to see, by far, less barriers on... More

Hi, Herculaneum is about 20 minutes train ride from Pompeii's "Villa dei Misteri" station. Alternatively, by car it's approx. 15 min., and 7 km. away from Pompeii
