Pompeii is SO big, but we were determined to see all of it. Follow along as we show you all the ruins, the amazing mosaic floors, and life as it was for Pompeiians 2000 years ago. This travel guide will walk you through all the sites in Pompeii, from the amphitheater to the House of the Geometric Mosaics to the incredible Casa del Menandro. From the Temple of Apollo and the Temple of Isis to the Forum and the plaster casts of the victims of the Mount Vesuvius eruption. We’ll also give you helpful tips along the way to save you time and make sure you have a great experience when you visit the Pompeii ruins.
We also wanted to show you how to get from Naples to Pompeii. Taking the train to the Pompeii Archaeological Site can be a little complicated because there are multiple train stations in Pompeii, so we show you exactly what tickets to buy and where to go to catch the train.
