    The ruins of Pompeii consists of several interesting sites, such as:
    • The main Etruscan and Greek ruins,
    • The Forum of Pompeya (in Latin and in ancient Rome, a forum corresponds to a public place),
    • The exhibition of the last inhabitants of Pompeii,
    • The thermal baths of the forum,
    • The House of the Tragic Poet,
    • The Basilica of Pompeii,
    • The Magic Villa of Pompeii,
    • Madonna’s Sanctuary.

    The visit to the exhibition of the last inhabitants of Pompeii is impressive: these are (real) casts of the bodies of the unfortunates surprised during the eruption of the volcano. The mixture of dust, ash and lava made it possible to find these inhabitants, which is quite destabilizing.

    Also, from Pompeii you can go by boat for a day trip to Capri!

    A tip if you visit Pompeii: take a tourist guide in French or take part in an excursion. Roman history is so fascinating that it would be a shame to miss a beat! Count between 20 and 40 euros per person for this.

    Walking around Pompeii has a historical character, both fascinating and a little special: it’s a unique experience to live!
