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, 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. Be sure to pay a visit to the large theatre, the numerous temples and the markets. As the biggest excavation site in the world, Pompeii is bound to amaze and inform you.
