Top-Rated Tourist Attractions in Pompeii

The ruined city of Pompeii lies 20km/12mi southeast of Naples at the foot of Vesuvius, near the Gulf of Naples.

It is the finest example of a Roman town and its way of life, presented to modern eyes by excavation.

To the east of the ancient site is the newer settlement, known until 1929 as Valle di Pompei, with a conspicuous domed church, Santa Maria del Rosario, which is visited by countless pilgrims (particularly on May 8th and on the first Sunday in October).
