"Go with a guide" Ruins and history Tip by Cazee

Ruins and history, Pompeii: 21 reviews and 35 photos


Favorite thing: Pompeii is so large and spreadout and it all looks very much the same. There are various routes you can take ranging in the number of hours they take and what areas they cover. My top tip for this is that you must go with a guide becasue they will point out things that you wouldn,t recognise if you went by yourself. For instance they will point out what various buildings are eg the laundry, brothels, restaurants etc. Otherwise they all look the same. They will also so point out murals on the walls, markings in the road etc. if you go by your self you are likley to miss these things. Going with a guide means you get to see everything and you can make the most of your visit.
