What people are saying about Pompei

The tour is amazing. You will learn about how the Romans lived, their great inventions, you will be able to understand and see evidence from 2000 years ago. The tour lasts 2 hours, enough to visit the most important buildings. The Ancient City is huge and you will need more than one day to see it all. I recommend wear comfortable shoes because there’s a lot of walking.
