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.

We visited the larger of the two theatres, which are located next to each other, in the Insula 7 of the Regio VIII, on the Via Stabiana. The Teatro Grande was built in the II. century BC. It was heavily damaged during the eruption in 79 AD, only a relatively small portion of the auditorium is original (the white stones), the rest is a reconstruction. Nevertheless, it is a big theatre for 5000 spectators, showing us that in ancient time people loved to watch comedies and tragedies in a theatre. The inhabitants of ancient Pompeii also held political debates in this theatre.

Our guide said this theater is still being used for some concerts. Considering it is over 2000 years old, it still is amazing.

Still in use today as a venue for theatrical and musical performance, this theater when reconstructed in 80 BC could seat approximately 5000 spectators. It is a well-preserved example of Teatro’s during the Roman time. An interesting sidelight is the urinal along the walkway

An ancient amphitheatre that still gets used today - shows you how the ancients got the acoustics just right! The first few steps are completely original - was so cool to sit in the same place.
