POMPEII accessible to ALL (wheelchairs are welcome!)
the accessible route, called “Pompeii for all” it is finally
possible for all visitors with disabilities and families with
strollers to access the archaeological area in order to enjoy this
unique ancient site! The itinerary is 3
kilometers long and has two entry/exit points: Piazza
Esedra and the Amphitheater Gate. Ramps
and elevators, created to overcome architectural barriers, allow for
easy access to experience your journey back in time! Don't miss it!
Meet your guide at the
Amphitheater *Gate, where it is possible to admire two of the
highlights of Pompeii: the Amphitheater
and the Great Gymnasium. From
there, continue exploring the ancient Roman city along
Via Dell’Abbondanza, the main route dividing Pompeii from east to
west and leading to the Forum. Named
after the marble fountain depicting the head of Abundance, the street
is one of the most interesting places on the site. Featured are
plenty of shops, some of the best preserved wealthy/affluent Roman
houses, political announcements and the Stabian Baths. Our last stop
is the Forum, the heart of Pompeii, with its thriving market and
trade center for the Roman city, where you will encounter all the
most important public buildings. On our way out, we will use the
elevator to reach the Piazza Esedra.

Highly recommended. Saw and learned more than we ever would have on our own
Met with Stefan (on time) and as arranged in Piazza del Gesù and then walked through the historical centre for 3 hours or so. The trip included well known as well as off the beaten track points of interest and included an espresso like I’d never had before - very thick, sweet and creamy. Also strolled down the street where they make presepe, which I hadn’t heard of before.
In the afternoon took the the express train to Pompei, again finding less visited sites and curiosities like the absolutely amazing frescoes of the Villa Misteri.
Not cheap but well worth it for the wealth of local and art/historical knowledge that Stefano (he studied art history at the university of Naples) and Antoinetta have. Also useful to have a licensed guide to get straight to the front of the ticket question (and who is also good company.)
