Things to do in Ruins of Pompeii

(2484)

UNESCO heritage listed since 1997, the ancient Roman city of Pompeii needs no introduction. Famously buried under a layer of volcanic ash and pumice, its detailed archaeological excavations offer an intimate look at Roman life - while also making for one hell of a cautionary tale about living next to a volcano.

Before almighty Vesuvius blew its top in 79 A.D, Pompeii was a rich commercial hub home to more than 10,000 inhabitants, with a dense network of residential buildings, shops and entertainment facilities that included an amphitheatre, multiple thermal spas and a brothel. While some of it still remains interred, most has been uncovered fantastically preserved.

Domenico Fontana accidentally discovered the lost city in 1594 while digging a tunnel, but it was only in 1748 that serious excavation began. Liquid plaster was used to take the place of organic material (including human bodies) creating emotionally fraught scenes. From the Forum, the centre of political and social life in the city, to muted frescoes and scrawled graffiti on the walls, you’ll find evidence of a complex modern culture along with poignant details that tell a very human story.

Reviews Ruins of Pompeii

Ryan, 17 May 2022

“Pompei, obviously amazing. Directions/meeting location on the ticket was incorrect and we had to pay for audio guides again, because TUI didn't make the reservation.”

Yuval, 26 Mar 2016

“It was a really good deal to buy the Pompeii tickets online, as it saved us probably half an hour of waiting in the sun.”
