Least crowded day of the year to visit Pompeii?

by Pau365

Hi everyone,

Would anyone be able to tell me when they think the best day, or best time of year, would be to visit Pompeii from a non-crowded point of view? When would there be less people? In Winter I imagine... maybe midweek in early January? When would you say?

Thanks!

The best time of the year to visit Pompeii is off season. Autumn and Spring are the best time. If you go during the week you'll find less people and you can walk very well.

Yes, off season is best but there are still tour groups and individual visitors.

I have visited twice in mid-February, and it was fine both times.

Try to get there for opening time. Organised tour groups generally arrive from around 11 am onwards. Arriving at 10, during the first hour there were perhaps 10 of us exploring this huge site, and it was entirely wonderful. Basically, I had it to myself for all of that time.

Mind you, the weather may not be brilliant...first time I had bright sunshine (warm wnough for short sleeves in the middle of the day), second time heavy rain which turned to sleet (snow fell on Vesuvius)...warm coat/hat/scarf/gloves/boots/umbrella! So check the weather forecast and dress accordingly! :-)

Travel Tips for Pompeii

House of the Small Fountain

by Aitana

According to the typical scheme of the roman villa with atrium, the house is built around the axe hall-atrium-tablino. This way, the guest can perceive immediately the status of the owner. Most of the rooms are connected to the atrium.
In the garden, frescoes sumptuously decorate the walls of the peristyle. The fountain (nympheum) is covered with mosaics and ornamented with sculptures.

Amazing visual history

by huwhit

Away from all the lewd happenings in Pompeii, there really is some amazing visual history.

Such as seeing the plaster of paris recreations of the victims in the same position as when the ash from the eruption would have ended their lives.

The villas

by TinKan

I like to walk around the villas of Pompei that have been recently uncovered.

There is so much we have to learn about the way people lived back in 47AD and try to understand their way of life. The people of Pompei were very smart and showed that a good social structure works in a larg city of that time.

A place for walking

by TinKan

Pompei ruins cover a large area and not all of it has been uncovered yet. You will get a full day of sunshine and walking while viewing the site. Make sure you have good walking shoes and a bottle of water as it does get hot here in the summer. Walk down some of the lesser streets and way in the back of the ruins to see what the tour guides don't show you.

The Cast of Victims

by Goner

The wet ashes and cinders accompanying the eruption hermetically sealed the town preserving many public buildings, temples, theaters, baths, shops and private homes. Many art objects were preserved also. Remnants of some 2,000 victims of the disaster were found in the ruins of Pompeii, including several gladiators who had been placed in chains to prevent them from escaping or committing suicide. Ashes, mixed with rain settled around the bodies in molds that remained after the bodies turned to dust. Liquid plaster was poured into some of these molds by the excavators, which preserved the bodies. The museum erected at Porta Marina gate exhibits some of these figures.
