The Entrance, Pompeii: 13 reviews and 15 photos

  Porta Marina entrance
by sandysmith

Favorite thing: There are other gates of entry but the Porta Marina is the one commonly used and this brings you up to the forum and temple areas.
From here many important sights in Pompei can be seen if on a tight schedule.
Other entrances and exit points include:

Porta di Ercolano - best for Villa of Mysteries
Piazza Anfiteatro - by the ampitheatre of course.

Best of all is if you can enter by one and exit by another.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
