We were there as a family with children aged between 09 and 17. We definitely thought it was good to have booked an audio guide, it was just a shame that not all the places listed on the audio guide could be visited. We would also have found it helpful if the individual places had been illustrated by reconstructions like the Forum in a side street as we once found it (Restituzione grafica virtuale). We would have liked to see at least one house in a furnished state or to receive a recommendation for a tour... we thank you very much for your work!

The online booking was really easy and the queues at Pompeii, which we'd heard could be terrible, were fine, only a 10 stand in line to get out tickets. Great value too, we stayed 7 hours so well worth the money.

Pompeii is fantastic. It is a true living museum. The view of vesuvius in the background is breathtaking and it truly takes you back to the moment in 79AD. I would definitely recommend taking either a tour guide or audio guide. Otherwise, you are just looking at ruins that will make no sense.

Audio guide is a cell phone. This means that the display is difficult to see in bright sunshine. The displayed map can be zoomed in and there are lots of dots. The dots indicate certain places/objects, which are then explained. If you don't have headphones with you, you are constantly holding the phone to your ear.

Deeply ingrained in myth and history, Pompeii dates back to nearly 2,000 years ago. An ancient site, the town was unearthed in 1748 AD after the infamous eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD. Over here you can revel in the ancient glory of the Campania region forever immortalized by the volcanic debris, standing as a true testament of nature’s infinite existence.

Upon arrival in Pompeii make your way into the attraction where your adventure truly begins. With ancient ruins and age-old artifacts all around, and a skyline dominated by Mount Vesuvius, the visuals through this discovery are breathtaking. Ideally, you want to spend around 4 hours here, there’s plenty for you to see. Walk around the Forum, visit the Basilica or relax under the shade of a tree near the amphitheater, it’s your call. There are numerous frescos and statues spread over the town along with 25 street fountains, 4 public baths and many business buildings which paints an almost real picture of the town in its hay day. As you stroll through the cobbled streets you’ll find yourself looking at everything with a sense of wonder and amazement. After all, you’re in a place that is frozen in the fabric of time.

Your understanding of the ancient world is sure to change after you see how much we have in common with people who lived in the first century. From everyday objects to wine barrels, there’s a lot for you to see and discover on this tour.

If you are one of those people who would rather live an experience than hear about it, check out MAP tickets. With the help of 3D reconstruction and virtual reality, you'll walk the streets of Pompeii in its glory days. See how mundane lives in ancient Rome looked like right before Mount Vesuvius turned the blossoming empire into ashes and lava!
