Porta Marina (Marine Gate)
The Porta Marina is the main entrance to Pompeii, located directly across the road from the Pompeii Scavi train station. This entrance is more popular with tourists, mostly due to all the facilities available here. For instance, you can access the information kiosk, hire audio guides, shop for souvenirs, all at the Porta Marina. Express access to Pompeii is also available at this entrance. Given that many of the facilities listed above are only available at Porta Marina, it's the most crowded of the three entrances to Pompeii and you can expect a considerable waiting time here.
