Pompeii Ruins & Mt Vesuvius Volcano Day Trip from Rome

4,447 reviews
While vacationing in Rome, spend time away from the big city without doing a ton of planning on a guided tour of Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius. Hike to Mt. Vesuvius' crater (summer only) and explore Pompeii with a guide, discovering lesser-known historical info as you go, and don’t worry about entrance fees they are included.

The Via dell'Abbondanza, the main street of ancient Pompeii, begins at the southeast corner of the Forum and continues eastward. As we entered the street, we passed the Casa del Cinghiale (the Boar House), but we did not visit it. We saw two public fountains, with drinking water and a couple of those characteristic, elevated street crosswalk. In front of the Terme Stabiane (the largest baths in Pompeii), the street becomes wider and the intersection with the Via Stabiana, with a couple of shorter column stubs and one higher column, is quite impressive. It looks like there was a tetrapylon. After the intersection, we passed the House of M. Epidius Rufus, the House of Casca Longus and arrived at the Fullery of Stephanus, a workshop for cleaning clothes, but we did not go in. On the facade, there are some ancient voting graffiti, with slogans of the candidates! Across the street, we saw the actual remains of an ancient door, still with the hinges. High above is the modern Casina dell'Aquila, with a restaurant for tourists. It shows very vividly, how much pumice, lapilli and ash had to be removed to excavate the ruins!

This road has both vilas, stores, water fountains (water for citizens), advertisement on walls. As walk down it, you realize that this is a very well made city unfortunately, this was also where they threw their waste since no sewers

A main road running through Pompeii that runs from the east gate (Sarno) to the forum. It is the longest road in the ruins at nearly 1 KM. Situated along the route are ruins of the Stabian baths, major intersection with via Stabiana (which leads to the theater district), elite residences, houses, shops and workshops. If you have visited Pompeii you have walked on this road

Amazing to see how the ancient people used to live - walk down the old main street and peer into old buildings and stores. The road is carved so that the sewerage could flow down with two main pedestrian walkways on either side with stepping stones in between!

To think that in these days there were no sewers and the waste just ran down the street , the smell must have been horrendious especially in the heat of summer.They had an aquaduct system to flush the waste down the street but how often I did not find out.But nowadays so worth a visit .
