Pompeii from Rome

The tour takes a rest stop at a little family store coming to and from Pompeii and the store owners are quite hostile if you don't by anything. Other than that the tour guide is great and so is Pompei

Tickets to Pompeii

The once-thriving city of Pompeii fell to ash and rubble in 79 AD. The story of Pompeii’s tragic demise is told best when you visit the ruins. The historical evidence of the once Roman civilization is so vivid and tangible in the archaeological remains that no trip to the region of Campania is complete without exploring Pompeii.

Book your Pompeii tickets and explore the excavated archaeological site for a true sense of the way of life before the volcanic disaster occurred.

While the eruption of Mount Vesuvius was a tragic event, what it left behind was something remarkable. Visit Pompeii and step back in time to gain a better understanding of the customs, religion, culture, lifestyle, and architecture that defined the area. When you're finished exploring, head over to the volcano that was responsible for the city's tragic demise. 

Perhaps one of the greatest visual signs of the tragic eruption, that you’ll view on your Pompeii experience, are the bodies you’ll see, now preserved in glass. The pain and desperation can still be seen when you look into the final expressions of the victims. A visit to Pompeii is more than a sightseeing excursion, it's an emotional experience.

Pompeii Ruins Highlights

  • Try your hand at reading and understanding the Oscan inscriptions written by Athena & Hercules in their sanctuary and the oldest roman temple in Pompeii, The Doric Temple.
  • There’s no doubt that the Forum and Amphitheatre of Pompeii are the main attractions in Pompeii. However, the many streets and villas are just as much worth your time. Gain an insight into what life must have looked like when you visit the entire Pompeii Scavi site. 
  • Enter the wrestling school, Palaestra, and picture yourself running around the field playing sports like the young upper-class citizens once did.
  • Explore the main centre of religious life in Pompeii at the Temple of Jupiter, also known as Capitolium. The stunning construction was built in honour of the Jupiter, Juno, and Minerva triad.  
  • Take a seat in the richly decorated suggestum, where judges sat while judicial affairs were managed in the Basilica
  • Can you imagine going grocery shopping in the 1st Century? Picture yourself as a 1st Century citizen as you stroll past the Macellum, the marketplace where the citizens of Pompeii would buy their food.

#Pompeii Ruins

  • Let someone take a classic shot of you walking down the stairs of the Pompeii Amphitheater
  • Take a photo of one of the 30 majestic sculptures made by the artist Igor Mitoraj, exhibited throughout the archaeological area. The most popular one is the Centaur, displayed in the Roman Forum. 
  • Capture the perfectly preserved paintings that cover the walls of the House of the Vettii.  
  • Snap those landscape shots with the ruins in the first frame and the surrounding hills in the background.

  • Whether you’re booking Pompeii tours or just paying the Pompeii entry fee, you will always get the best price when you reserve your tickets to Pompeii ruins in advance.
  • Watch out! Street vendors may try to sell you fake or overpriced entry tickets at Circumvesuviana train stations. Book your entrance Pompeii tickets online to avoid any scams.
  • If you are travelling from Naples or further, it’s best to book a Pompeii day trip that also includes your Pompeii admission tickets. Some of the best tours of Pompeii include transportation from neighbouring cities. 

Pompeii Tours Tips

  • If you want to enjoy a comprehensive visit to the ancient city, hiring an expert guide is essential. Your guide will do more than tell you stories. They’ll ensure you see all the sites and, most importantly, help you understand what you’re looking at. It would be easy to overlook some of the famous temples of Pompeii, but with a guide, they’ll make sure you don’t miss a thing.
  • You can either join in on a Pompeii walking tour or book a private Pompeii guided tour. If you want to brave it on your own, you can choose to book Pompeii ruins tickets with audio guide and explore at your own pace!

Preparing For Your Pompeii Visit

Pack a bag with the following items, and enjoy your full visit to Pompeii:

  • Plenty of water! There are fountains on-site so that you can refill your bottles.
  • Bring your own snacks and food to consume while visiting Pompeii. You will have to leave the site to find restaurants, and they tend to be a little bit pricey. 
  • Be sure to pack sunscreen as you’ll be walking all day, and there are not many places to find shade. Also, carry an umbrella and raincoat with you in case the weather forecast changes.
  • Make sure the bag you have is no larger than 30 x 30 x 15, otherwise you will need to leave it in the cloakroom. 
  • Wear proper walking attire. The streets of Pompeii are cobbled and mostly uneven, therefore running shoes or hiking boots are best.


How much are tickets to Pompeii?

Do I need to book tickets for Pompeii?

Of course! Without tickets to Pompeii ruins entry isn’t guaranteed. During high season and on the weekends, you’re likely going to face long entry queues.

Do I need to buy tickets in advance for Pompeii?

Can you visit Pompeii and Herculaneum in one day?

From Pompeii, Herculaneum Oplontis is only 15 minutes away by train. You can buy your Herculaneum and Pompeii tickets together, although, visiting them both in one day would be quite a marathon. If you want to make the most of both sites, it’s best to dedicate a whole day in Pompeii, and another one in the area around Herculaneum.

Can you tour Pompeii on your own?

Some sites are better appreciated with Pompeii guided tours; this is one of them! With a Pompeii guide, you’ll gain a more comprehensive knowledge of the design of the city, and learn why it was built between a volcano and the sea. 

Allow a guide to bring the ruins to life in front of your eyes. As you walk the empty streets, virtually unchanged for nearly 2000 years, you can fully immerse yourself in the past. Make your visit memorable by joining a group tour.

What should I see in Pompeii?

With a self guided audio tour including Pompeii archaeological site tickets, you can see the Temple of Apollo, Amphitheatre of Pompeii, the House of the Vettii, and more! If you want to experience everything, book a fully planned Pompeii Itinerary with a small group guided tour.
