We caught the train in Pompei at Villa dei Misteri and took the Circumvesuviana line all the way down the coast. Our plan for the day? To eat and wander around without much of an itinerary. Since we were visiting just before the holidays, the streets were decked out with all sorts of Christmas decorations. We befriended a few dogs along the way, and then we found a spot to indulge in coffees and pastries. After walking through the town, we started making our way down to the waterfront, more specifically, to Marina Grande. This harbour is line with pastel-coloured buildings, boats bobbing in the water, and lots of seafood restaurants. After walking the length of the marina and browsing through menus, we finally settled on a restaurant for lunch: Zi’Ntonio Mare. Making our way back to town, we also attempted to visit Sorrento Cathedral, but we arrived outside of opening hours so here’s a quick look from the exterior. From there, we continued down some of Sorrento’s pedestrian-friendly side streets, which were lined with small shops and outdoor produce stalls. Limoncello seemed to be by far the most popular souvenir, so if you’re looking for a taste of the famed lemon liqueur, this is a good place to stock up! Our last stop of the day were the Cloisters of San Francis, where there was a small art exhibition taking place. These cloisters are also located in small park with great views of the coastline and the Mediterranean Sea, so we enjoyed the views one last time and then it was time to head back.

Visiting the Ruins of Pompeii, Italy Travel Guide Transcript:

While many travellers visit Pompeii on a day trip, we chose to base ourselves here for a few days. The main draw, of course, were the ruins of Pompeii, an ancient Roman city that was buried under ash and pumice when Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD. We spent half a day walking through the world's largest excavation and archaeological site, and what follows it our mini travel guide.

Our first stop inside the complex was the Amphitheatre of Pompeii. Built around 70 BC, this is the oldest surviving Roman amphitheatre to have been built of stone; for comparison the Colosseum in Rome wouldn’t come into existence for another century. We toured the grounds and also checked out the music exhibit on site, because it turns out a lot of bands have played here over the years!

After visiting the amphitheatre which is on the very east end, we started making our way into the city. The streets were cobbled and all along there were rows of houses and villas, many of them with impressive frescoes that tell the tale of a wealthy city with lavish homes.

One of the reasons Pompeii is so well preserved is because it was buried quickly by volcanic ash and pumice, plus the lack of air and moisture also allowed for the buried artifacts to be extremely well preserved. Stepping into the homes is like stepping into the past; you can still see the elaborate mosaic floors and vibrant frescoes frozen in time.

Continuing our walk through Pompeii, we eventually reached the Forum. This square would have been the centre of life for locals with temples, municipal buildings, and markets. The statue of the centaur, half-man half-horse, is a focal point, as is the view of Mount Vesuvius looking down on the ruins.

To finish off our visit of Pompeii, we walked along the southern edge of the ruined city where we saw the casts of the victims of Vesuvius. When archaeological teams began excavating Pompeii, they noticed there were large voids in the compacted ash whenever they were digging around bones. By pouring plaster into the spaces, they were able to capture the final poses of the residents’ last moments in the city.

One of the best discoveries of our time in Pompeii was Pizzeria Alleria, we stumbled here soaking wet on our first night in the city and we just couldn’t stay away after that. Here’s what the fuss is all about.

After that, we ended up getting a second Margherita pizza - the first one was just too tasty! - and then we also ordered the Nutella cheesecake, which was just as decadent as it looks.

We started our do-it-yourself tour of modern Pompei at Piazza Bartolo Longo, a beautiful plaza lined with palm trees right in the heart of the city. Standing in the square, it’s impossible to miss the Shrine of the Virgin of the Rosary of Pompei, where once you step you are greeted with painted domes and golden ceilings. And then from there, we went to the top of the bell tower for a 360-degree views of the city.
