Pompeii’s Story of Life and Tragedy is Revealed

With a menacing Mount Vesuvius looming, a visit to Pompeii brings to life the terrible tragedy of nearly 2,000 years ago. From Rome, it is two train rides and about three hours away, but I would not miss the experience. Take the train from Roma Termini to Naples. You will have several choices…we took the local train for just 11 Euro. Then follow the signs to the Circumvesuviana station; buy tickets before the turnstile for 4,50 Euro (commas instead of decimals) and head for the platform. Get off at the Pompeii Scavi Villa Misteri station, about 30 minutes. Go past the guided tour kiosk and the entrance is on the left. You can get water (and pizza?) from one of the several food/drink stands on the way.
