Forum, Pompeii

4.7
Imagine what life was like 2,000 years ago at Forum, the ancient social center of the ruined city of Pompeii and a World Heritage Site. One of the main attractions in the city, which was buried in the 1st century CE, the central area has remained eerily frozen in time. What was once used as a marketplace for the Romans is now a major tourist spot. Walk among the crowds of tourists and experience the ghost-like presence of Ancient Rome in what has become an open-air museum two millennia past the natural disaster that claimed this city.

  • Amazing restoration of the ancient city! The street was incredible! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful with questions. The tiny bit of exploring time was good, would have liked a little more. Restrooms (toilet) facilities at the beginning and end, no water during tour. Come prepared!
  • Much bigger and more to see than I expected. Very impressive. Our tour guide was very informative. The original inhabitants were very smart and resourceful. Great experience. We took 2 hour private tour.
