Customer Travel Tip: Give yourself 4-5hrs to wander the ancient ruins (I took six!) as there's so much to see. Take a water bottle in and refill as you go at the water fountains in the ruins. Have a hat and sunscreen and either get in early before the tour groups or later in the day as around midday they're all there!!

Liked: Ancient ruins were amazing and the weather was beautiful!!

Trip Type:
City break

Customer Travel Tip: take as much time, and leave earlier if you are time short.

Liked: small place, ruins close to central city

Disliked: The shuttle to Vesuvius was supposed to leave at 11 meaning there would be time in the afternoon for the ruins, however it changed to 3pm, and did not leave until 4pm. This was an inconvience as I only had one day in Pompeii, I had to rush through the ruins, and then spend an hour waiting for the shuttle. The shuttle was so late that at Vesuvius, everything closed and we were one of the last to go. Not enough time spent in the sites, and mostly spent waiting for transport.

Customer Travel Tip: Visit the ruins in the evening... About 5:30 - the place will be deserted! Go to Add'u Mimi restaurant - best meal we've had in Italy & very cheap.

Liked: You only come to Pompei for 2 things - the ruins and Mt Vesuvius. Both excellent

Disliked: Not the nicest city!

Customer Travel Tip: There are three Pompei train stations, make sure you find the right one if travelling by train. Scavi is the touristy ruins entrance. Pompei central takes longer, but the local trains are interesting and if you ask the right questions you'll find your way.

Liked: Everything! I stayed in Pompei central and it's such a beautiful town/city. Very easy to get around, so much to see, and peaceful or relaxing.

Disliked: No.

Customer Travel Tip: Make sure you do atleast 10mins research on how to get here by train from Napoli. It is easy an cheap if you have done a little bit of research. But confusing if you step off the TreniItalia railways.

Liked: It is quiet, friendly and close to the ruins and easy public transport to access Sorrento and the Amalfi coast.
