5 Valuable tips for visiting Pompeii from Naples
Don't take a big bag.
You will be walking so much around the archeological site of Pompeii that carrying a big bag will be very tiring. Regardless, visitors are not actually allowed to enter the site with large bags, which means that you will have to leave your stuff at the entrance.
Pack your lunch.
Bring along a delightful sandwich if possible! While there are a few food options in Pompeii, the top choice is the cafeteria behind the Forum. Yet, hunger might strike before you reach it. That's why bringing a little sandwich is a great idea.
Wear a hat and bring enough water.
There is barely any shade in Pompeii, and it can get very hot, especially during the summer months. No matter what, make sure you are wearing a hat, as you may not feel well otherwise. Also, it is highly recommended to bring enough water with you to stay hydrated!
Wear good walking shoes.
Every street in Pompeii is made of stones. On top of that, it's a large archeological site, so you will be walking a lot! That's why we highly recommend wearing comfortable sneakers. However, if you opt for sandals, make sure they are very comfortable and that you can walk a long time in them.
Visit Herculaneum too!
Located between Naples and Pompeii, Herculaneum is a town that was also destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Unlike Pompeii, Herculaneum was a wealthy seaside town and was covered by mud (not a cloud of volcanic ashes). This means that it was way better preserved. You can walk in the houses and even see beautiful colorful mosaics and paintings!
Good to know before you go
- Follow the rules and avoid touching objects, walls, and frescoes in Pompeii.
- Please avoid bringing food or plastic bottles to Pompeii to prevent pollution and preserve the integrity of the archaeological site.
- Keep in mind that professional optical and audio equipment for commercial use in Pompeii is not allowed.
