Pompeii, a must see! Jul 21, 2011
Most people coming to Naples don't want to miss out on Pompeii and they're right!

You reach Pompeii with the metro train (Circumvesuviana line Naples - Sorrento) and you get out on the Pompeii Scavi stop. From there it's just two minutes walk to the entrance of the site. The metro costs 11 euro /return/2 persons.

If you are into archeology don't miss out on Pompeii!

The entrance is 11 euro/person.

The site is enormous. You really need a whole day. We walked for 8 hours and didn't see everything. Do buy a map! Without a map, you certainly get lost or never find what you want to see!

The buildings are well kept or reconstructed. There are some statues left and and some murals are exceptionally well preserved.

Added pictures say more than words!

Good to see, but sad at the conditions... Jun 17, 2009
Pompeii was a must for us however, once we made the trek there from Rome and got into the grounds it was sad to see that the locals like to party it up after hours (guessing) and not many people like to clean it up.

The guards smoke cigarettes and put them out anywhere and there were a few really great areas that were getting run down due to lack of care (preserved bodies encased, statues)

I would recommend this for anyone, there is nothing else to really do in this small town so it is good for a day trip. Go when it's nice out, it poured rain for us and it sucked.

Visiting the Scavi Archeologici di Pompei Jun 20, 2006
Visiting the Scavi Archeologici di Pompei is very worth. Not only because of the beautiful city (or remains) of the city you can find there, but also it's amazing being able to see some bodies of the people who passed away during the volcano eruption.

You can take a tour or do it by yourself - so I did. Arriving to Pompei (at the station) I got a map of the city - highly recommended since it's like a labyrinth.

You can choose to follow different routes depending on how much time you want/can spend here. There are routes from 2, 4 & 6hrs long.

Take some time to walk around and get lost through the small streets and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

A tip: in summer it's really hot. Bring some water, but don't drink too much since there are restrooms just at the entrance and exit. Be sure to wear comfy shoes, since you will walk a lot!
