Overview

Explore one of the world’s best-preserved archaeological sites with Pompei skip the line admission ticket and avoid waiting in long queues.

The eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 C.E. wiped out the entire settlement of Pompeii. Today, it is one of the most evocative and beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Sites which offer a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the people of an ancient civilization. The spectacular ruins are one of Italy’s most visited sites and attract millions of tourists every year.

When Vesuvius erupted with the force of 100,000 atom bombs, life in Pompeii met an instantaneous death. Ironically, it was the blanket of superheated ash that helped preserve much of the city for thousands of years. A visit to Pompeii provides an extraordinary window into life in Roman times. Evidence of everyday life abound in the ruins. On the floor of one of the houses (Sirico’s) you can read a famous inscription, Salve lucru (“Welcome, profit”) and it indicates a trading company owned by Sirico himself.

You can inspect wine jars labeled Vesuvinum – a play on both Vesuvius and the Latin for wine, vinum. This is quite possibly the world’s first-known marketing pun! Explore over 50 hectares, stroll around the Forum with Vesuvius in the background, or sit under a tree and admire the spectacular amphitheater. There are remnants of the all-important aqueduct, street fountains, public baths, private houses, businesses, statues, frescoes, as well as hundreds of haunting plaster casts of lava-fried locals!
