My Review

If you liked Pompeii you will enjoy this trip. If you've never been to Pompeii, well do this trip as a taster. The only problem is that it is too short. You are walking for a couple of hours in an archaeological site, so be prepared for that.
This is a look at the life of the middling and poorer groups of Rome, so don't be expecting a Colosseum!! What you will see are some good everyday mosaics in situ. You will see the remains of baths, a theatre, a forum and temples. as well as shops and toilets.
A highlight is the trading area of the town where the individual merchants' 'offices' are arranged around a forum with a temple in its centre.
As well as the domi of the more affluent citizens the insulae ,or lodging houses, of the poorer are here. Even Pompeii does not have these as well preserved.
If you want a morning out of the city away from the crowds, and to get a feel of the everyday life of Romans, then you will enjoy this visit.
