How to get around in Pompeii

Transportation options in Pompeii

You basically get to Pompei and then just walk around the Pompeii archaeological park—which is vast, dusty, and (in summer) quite hot, so bring good shoes, lots of water, and sunscreen.

Here's the basic layout and entrances to the park, as well as how to get a taxi in the modern city if you happen to need one.
