Things to do in  Pompeii

Welcome to Pompeii

No other place in the world offers a more immersive experience of life in an ancient Roman metropolis than Pompeii. Buried during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius almost 2,000 years ago, the once thriving city’s villas, shops, temples, and baths remain frozen in time. The UNESCO-listed archaeological site is a popular day trip from Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast, often paired with a tour of nearby Herculaneum, an excursion to the top of Mt. Vesuvius, or a winery visit and tasting on the mountain slopes.
