Hard to imagine we were in the same place as those in Pompeii prior to the place being buried in volcanic ash in 79 AD. Our tour guide also asked a group member to sing which was a good way to demonstrate the acoustics. We lingered a while after the spiel of the guide so we could appreciate the empty... More

She stood down on the performance floor, we sat on the bench seats several levels above her and could enjoy hearing every note. The acoustics were great. We acknowledged just how much better the acoustics were 2,000... More

The Grand Theater is what you want to see when visiting a Roman theater. Well preserved ruins and great acoustics.

What a surprise to see this theatre. Nice to sit and take a spell there and take in the building of it. It was quite a hot day when we were there, so good place to sit and contemplate about what they were capable of building in the past.

Be sure to duck into the Pink Floyd exhibit, a great day full of amazing history! You actually get to walk the original streets of doomed Pompeii!
