Pompeii is a "not-to-be-missed" attraction for those visiting Campania. It is the largest and best preserved archaeological site in Italy and the most visited in the world. The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, described by Pliny the Elder, completely buried this important Roman trading town preserving it in excellent conditions, only to be initially rediscovered in 1748.
Visiting Pompeii grants you an incredible journey into the public and private life of 2000 years ago.
The main attractions include:
Pompeii can be easily reached from the Grand Hotel Moon Valley by taking the local train. The station is a 10 minute walk from the hotel, with frequent trains which take 30 minutes to get to the ruins. The Hotel provides half-day group tours with a foreign language speaking guide.
The Concierge's advice: A guide (private or for groups) is essential to fully understand the beauty and legends of Pompeii. A half day is sufficient for this excursion. If you are particularly interested in archeology you can combine a visit to Herculaneum on the same day.
In the Pompeii area it is also worth mentioning the least known Ruins of Oplontis.
