Why visit Pompeii:
Since  its discovery by chance in 1749, Pompeii has become one of the most visited places in the world. It's a stimulation for the archeologists (you can see them keeping excavating there), for the writers, the movie directors, the musicians, the artists and the designers who are inspired by the colours and mosaics of Pompeii's Villas. Every year around two million tourists visit it. It's the second most visited place in Italy after Rome.

In fact Pompeii was one of the most important cities of the Roman Empire, visited by the merchants of all over the world. It had hotels, cafés, restaurants, bakeries, dry cleaners, theatres, a ‘stadium’ (amphitheater) for the games, brothels, humble houses and luxury villas with frescoes and mosaics still fashionable nowadays. There were also roads with one and two ways directions, and you can still drink water from its public fountains. There are many walls remained, on which you can read the signs about prices, elections, love or sexual poems, rude phrases from sport fans. There also were public free thermal baths, temples for a few different religions, and many other public and private buildings.

On the background of Pompeii you can see the impending sleeping volcano that covered it all for long 1700 years, and it’s a well-known fact that sooner or later it will wake up again and maybe cover all this for centuries. That’s why the people living in the so called “Vesuvius cities”, like Pompeii, Herculaneum and Naples have a life philosophy of Epicureanism, focused on the pleasure of existence; their motto is "Carpe diem" ("Seize the day").
There are places in the Campania Region which you can visit without a guide; it's enough to have a guide-book on you to enjoy them. But here, in the big open-air museum that is the ancient Pompeii, we suggest you to have a tour with a guide in order not only to find what you would like see in this big place, but mainly to experience the importance of the anсient city.

Souvenirs from Pompeii: small copies of frescoes and mosaics, phallus talismans.

When to visit Pompeii:
In summer it is easier to join an organized tour from  Amalfi coast and other places but check here availability at any time, from any city.
The classical tour takes about 2 hours (The Forum, public buildings and main temples, theatres, taverns, thermal baths, a brothel, a villa and public fountains). So this is always an easy walking tour for almost everybody.
People, who want to spend more time in Pompeii, can rely on local services to have lunch - there are cafés and toilets. On the first Sunday of every month the entrance is free (save € 13,00), but this is not always a good idea unless you go there in late afternoon when the non-paying mass goes away. As you visit Pompeii once in your life, you should get the most out of it.

The morning or the afternoon? In the morning there it is for sure busier, so it is easier to book and join a guided tour. But there are also guides in the afternoon (4 pm-7 pm) who accompany small groups to provide the information and the feel of this place. Check availability.
