Pompeii Tours from Naples

By Viator, March 2014

Pompeii has attracted tourists from all over the world since its ruins were properly discovered in the 19th century. Once a vibrant port, full of wealthy Romans with a passion for theatre and brothels, Pompeii became a city lost in time after Mount Vesuvius exploded in 79 AD, covering the city and preserving its remains. Pompeii was a large town, with 15,000 residents, so there is a lot to see when walking around the ruins. Even to this day they’re still excavating undiscovered features of the town.

28 kilometers from Naples, Pompeii can be accessed by local train, which runs every 30 minutes. However, the best way to see Pompeii is by taking one of the guided tours, which offer hotel collection.  This will ensure that you get a knowledgeable guide who can you all of the historical context that you need, as well as helping you to avoid the busiest parts of the town. Be sure to pay a visit to the large theatre, the numerous temples and the markets.

For a more unusual experience that is bound to make you blush, head to the brothels, of which Pompeii has more of than temples. In the wall of each room you’ll find a painting of a different sex act. The residents of Pompeii, business minded as they were, put these up for the aid of foreign travelers who had docked in the port for the night, so that they could just point at what they wanted without negotiating a language barrier.

As the biggest excavation site in the world, Pompeii is bound to amaze and inform you. Many of the tours offered also provide a trip to the crater of Mount Vesuvius, which most recently erupted during a bombing campaign in the Second World War, so make sure you pick the right one to make the most of your journey.
