Highlights
  • Explore one of the world’s most important and best-preserved archaeological sites. It’s over 50 hectares in size and contains a remarkable volume of objects, art and buildings from two millennia ago
  • Enjoy the great outdoors and find yourself looking at the most famous volcano of all. Mount Vesuvius dominates the surrounding skyline!
  • Indulge your sense of curiosity about the world and realize how much we have in common with people who lived almost 2000 years before us. You’ll see everyday objects that make the villagers seem real and relatable
Description

The eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 C.E. was a paradoxical thing. It was truly cataclysmic – it wiped out the entire populations of nearby towns - but it also yielded to history one of the most extensive and intact ruins of an ancient city. That settlement was Pompeii. This is one of Italy’s most visited sites and you can Skip The Line with this ticket.

The force of the eruption was many thousands of times greater than an atomic bomb. Unsurprisingly, the entire population was wiped out but the ash combined with the lack of moisture to preserve much of Pompeii. And what you witness today is an extraordinary insight into the life of a city during Roman times.

The details of everyday life abound. 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!

There are over 50 hectares to be explored. That’s a lot of space and makes for a full day. You can walk around the Forum with Vesuvius itself in the background or you can sit yourself under a tree and marvel at the nearby amphitheater, which is considered by modern scholars to be of a particularly sophisticated design.

You can see the remnants of the all-important aqueduct, which provided water for 25 street fountains, at least four public baths, and a large number of private houses and businesses. There are numerous statues and frescoes, and all in all you get a remarkable picture of a real, functioning town. Just one that happened to exist more than two millennia ago (though it was wiped out in 79 C.E., the town was founded about 700 years prior).

A FAMILY AFFAIR: For centuries all we knew of Vesuvius was an eyewitness account by Pliny The Younger. He watched from afar as the lava engulfed the area – and his beloved uncle, Pliny The Elder.

Getting There

Train: Take any train to Naples and, from there, the train to Sorrento. Get off at Pompeii (Villa dei Misteri), the closest stop to the Porta Marina entrance gate.

Insider tip

In 1972 Pink Floyd played a live show here that became the beloved concert documentary Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii. There's a cool exhibition about it underneath the amphitheater where they played. It's cool to supplement the window into Ancient Roman life with a glimpse at an iconic piece of rock n' roll history.

Tiqets made it possible to buy tickets at the last minute for the Pisa tower other vendors could not supply tickets on short notice, and Tiqets is very reasonably priced.

We got ti pompei and it mudt have been a quiet day no queue but had skip the queue tickets anyway. Only down side was to get the tickets was a good walk round to specific gate so time list walking rounf to porta marina gate......instead of using that valuable time inside The site. NOT PRAM OR WHEELCHAIR/MOBILITY AID FRIENDLY. Saw some poor couple eith pram plus toddler......stress factor!!

I bought the tickets about one hour before I left the hotel to catch the 8 AM train down to Pompeii. It was absolutely a seamless transaction with no hangups. I walked right up to the skip-the-line ticket office and then right into the site. I did my own tour with the map from the information booth and I felt that was the best way for this site. I highly recommend purchasing the tickets thru this no-stress method. I received the ticets by email almost immediately and had no problems at the ticket window-I handed the lady my phone and she got all the info she needed and then she gave me the paper ticket to show to the attendant when I entered the park.

I can’t say enough how worth it it is to book your tickets in advance. Saves a lot of time. We did it very last minute on the way to Pompeii on the train and beat all the crowds already queueing outside when we arrived.

Very efficient way of getting into this site. The regular ticket line was easily 50+ people long whereas the online ticket line was empty! Completely empty! Straight through into the site. I would thoroughly recommend this method of ticket purchase.
