It is definitely a woah experience. If you visit Naples or this area Pompei is a must. Don’t miss it. Unbelievable that the whole city just conservated. You could walk trough streets which were used by Pompeiians

We spent 4 hours walking 8km around the site today and still didn’t see it all. An amazing experience. Wear comfortable shoes and take a drink with you. You will need a camera
