Best time to visit
Early in the morning
  • 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

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.

Great service. Easy to book before departure. We got to Pompei early and there was actually no lines at all but the service was still good to have as we went in easily.

You get a ticket to get inside the area, but no map. Maps are, however, freely given away right before the ticket entrance itself, in a little booklet (in many languages), with quite detailed information on each location (and there are MANY).
So it's an easy way to get an entrance ticket, and probably the easiest way to get in for the intrepid explorer. The queue wasn't that long when we arrived, but it was still easier and faster.

Amazing experience!

I went to pompeii just before 17:00 on a saturday. There was no queue (I bought skip the line tickets online). It was pretty hot and dry, so make sure you take plenty of water or bottles (so you can fill them). Pompeii is pretty impressive and the level of conservation of some pieces is incredible. I opted by using my own audio guide by Rick Steves, but have to assume is pretty difficult to navigate and the experience can be enriched if you get your own guide. Some places were closed to visitors and I didn't see that many casts of people as I was expecting. But overall a great experience.

Geat thing to have these tickets. Instead of standing in a few hour long queue in gazing sun, we just stood in a short one where we showed IDs of people under 24, and then we got the tickets. Pompeii is an absolute must do in Naples, but I’d recommend the direct tains to Pompeii, and not the regionals we got (we bought trough Italia rail)

Great option to save time! 2 tickets cost there 26 euros, with this option we paid 32 euros, but if you want to skip the line, it's perfect.
Ps: get a guide when you get to Pompeii because without it, you'll not find all the details and great stories!

Excellent. No probs. Queue was over an hour at port entrance so online tickets did the trick! Just remember if buying a young person's reduced ticket take some ID. Recommend.
