Pompeii has been a tourist destination for more than 250 years.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Gli Scavi Archeologici di Pompei and Villa Cimbrone Gardens. Visit Paestum Ruins and Herculaneum Parking for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Pompeii side-trips: Spiaggia del Fornillo (in Positano), Paestum Ruins (in Paestum), Naples (Via San Gregorio Armeno, National Archaeological Museum of Naples, & more), Ravello (Villa Rufolo & Villa Cimbrone Gardens) and Duomo di Sant'Andrea Apostolo (in Amalfi). There's still lots to do: stroll the grounds of Catacombe di San Gennaro, and pause for some serene contemplation at Complesso Museale di Santa Chiara.
