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.

  • It was the beating heart of old Pompeii. From it there are many wide-ranging routes that take the sea to other places connected to the city center. The case of the curled person is a testimony of great historical value that instills endless emotions. He seems to relive the life of the time between electoral rallies and political and social meetings. It is undoubtedly one of the most special parts of the Pompeian archaeological site!

  • 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.
