"A hop and a skip!" Streets Tip by wilocrek

Streets, Pompeii: 31 reviews and 49 photos


The streets of Pompeii are well preserved and give an accurate feel for how Pompeii was laid out. The streets are long and straight at some points and narrow and windy at others. What I found the most interesting were the blocks in middle of the streets that the people could walk on to get across the streets when they were flooded. All it would require is a hop and a skip to get to the other side!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
