  Modern Pompei town square
by malkin

If you have a little time to spend when you go to the Pompeii ruins try to go a few hundred metres along the road into the modern Pompei. It’s a pleasant town where the hoards of tourists don’t seem to get to. You can eat your sandwiches or whatever in peace in the town square with the refreshing sound of the fountain to help the digestion.
The Basilica and Sanctuary on the edge of the main square are worth a visit - havens of peace.
