Pompeii: Preserved ancient Roman city frozen in time

Pompeii was a vibrant blue-collar town until the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79 covered it under a thick carpet of volcanic ash and reduced it to ruins and debris. Today, what is left of the ancient city of Pompeii is a UNESCO World Heritage site that offers a unique window into the daily life of a bustling Roman city. Discover the secrets of Pompeii, learn about its history, and find the perfect ticket for an unforgettable journey into the past.

Things to know before buying Pompeii tickets

  • The Pompeii Archeological Park has limited availability of detailed information or explanations at the site. So, it's advisable to consider an audio guide, or even better, a guided tour, for a truly enriching experience of this famed landmark.
  • In Pompeii, ongoing excavations and preservation efforts mean that some areas might unexpectedly open or close. Stay open to exploration, as unlocked doors or newly accessible sections could lead to fascinating discoveries.
  • Try to incorporate visits to Mount Vesuvius and Herculaneum for a more comprehensive understanding of the region's history and the impact of the 79 AD eruption.
  • Balance your time at Pompeii to avoid 'ruin fatigue'—tours typically last 2-4 hours, striking a balance for an informative and enjoyable visit, especially in the intense summer heat.
