If you have not quite yet decided which attractions to visit in Pompei first, please have a look at our Top 10 bus company tour bus suggestions for Pompei:
1. The Shrine
The Shrine of the Blessed Virgin of the Holy Rosary, in the "new" town of Pompeii (now the site of the excavation) is an international pilgrimage site. It is considered the most significant sanctuary dedicated to Mary in Italy
. Every year 4 million pilgrims from all over the world visit the shrine.
2. The Brothel
Ancient lupan (brothel) is a tiny house with stone beds and scenes of action that customers can pay for. It's essentially ancient porn, but it's not clear if the frescoes were practical or just painted. Unsurprisingly, this is one of the most visited houses in Pompeii.
3. The Forum
The Fourm was situated in the heart of Pompeii, a vibrant market and trade hub, and had many ties to politics as well. During the early days of ancient Roman rule, the political side of things was limited to the Comitium, which was the northern corner of the Forum. The remainder of the area had been used by the company. Later, markets were relocated to make room for a larger public meeting space. There was a major variance among those who joined the Forum as the day went by. Life in the Forum normally reached its height during the 11 o'clock hour, known as the Roman 5th hour. Various public buildings, such as the Temple of Jupiter, the Temple of Apollo, the Temple of Vespasian and the Basilica, face the Forum, and provide a prime view of Mount Vesuvius. The Forum itself was very wide, 157 x 38 metres. Hire a coach with driver in Coach charter Germany’s bus company and enjoy your ride to this historical landmark.
4. The Stabian Baths
The Stabian baths, which date back to the 2nd century BC, are among the oldest we know in the Roman world. The main entrance, via dell'Abbondanza, leads to a wide courtyard. The pool is to the left, while the colonnade is to the right, which leads to the man's quarters, which are divided into the apodyterium (dressing room), the frigidarium (for cold baths), which leads to the tepidarium (for medium-temperature baths) and then to the calidarium (for hot baths).
5. House of the Faun
The House of the Faun is one of the most famous houses in the ancient city of Pompeii, which was buried when Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD. With a floor area of 2490 m², it is the largest private house in the city and was excavated in the years 1830–1832.
6. The Amphitheater
The Pompeii Amphitheater is the oldest surviving Roman amphitheater. It is located in the ancient Roman city of Pompeii and was buried in AD 79 by the eruption of Vesuvius, which also buried Pompeii itself and the neighboring town of Herculaneum.
7. Cave Canem Mosaic
Perhaps you saw it at the entrance to any villas in Italy or around the world? The Cave Canem is one of the most famous mosaics in the world, and it's right here at the House of the Tragic Poet. It was recently restored in order to restore its ancient splendor, after years of neglect, with a device that protects it from rain and wind, but does not prevent the view. The House of the Tragic Poet is a typical house with an atrium, modeled after a mosaic in the National Archeological Museum of Naples
. E. Bulwer – Lytton used this house, which had just been built (1824-1825), as a model of the residence of Glaukos in his novel The Last Days of Pompeii (1834).
8. The Garden of fugitives of Pompei
It is the most tragic evidence of the end of Pompeii, certainly, of the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79. In the 1961-62 and 1973-74 excavations, the bodies of 13 victims of the eruption were found, stunned with lava and lapillus as they fled to Porta Nocera. Men, children, and infants, of one or more family groups, were asphyxiated with gasses and then slowly covered with ashes. Those you see today in the Garden of the fugitives are perfect reproductions of plaster, which allow us to understand the last moments of the life of these Pompeii inhabitants.
9. House of the Small Fountain
A lovely house with a large back room with beautiful frescoes and a lovely fountain of mosaics. Almost all the rooms lead to the central atrium, and you can see that the house was purchased by someone who may have been a little rich. The sloping roof was used to catch the rainwater that was also used in the fountain, a great example of ingenuity at the time.
10. The Villa of the Mysteries
The Villa of the Mysteries, in Pompeii, is an ancient Roman house, situated just outside the city and the archeological site. It is not possible to test the owner of this great house, even in this case, but some ruins suggest that the owners might have been a wealthy Roman patrician. Some people say that the villa belonged to Livia, the wife of Emperor Augustus, since a statue was found in the ruins depicting her. The Villa of the Mysteries is named after a series of paintings found in the room of the house, which some experts are still trying to classify.
Where to stay in Pompei?
In Pompeii, you can find restaurants, agriturism, and room rentals for all budgets, as the city is well built to accommodate large-scale tourists. The main hotels are situated in the city centre, along Via Lepanto, Via Roma and Via Piave. The hotels are located a short distance from the archeological site, very close to the Shrine of the Blessed Virgin of the Rosary and the Circumvesuvian Station. The cheapest B&Bs are a bit far from the main attraction centers, but for those who don't want to give up the luxury of being one step away from the ancient ruins, you can also find some B&Bs in the south.
