Pompeii useful information to help you plan your vacation
Pompeii takes a good, full day to explore. At the very least, it takes three to four hours , minimum, to pop into the major sights (it's a city, remember, so there's a lot of walking to be done).
You will note a spelling variation in this section that is not a typo.
- "Pompeii" (with two "i"s) refers to the ancient city and archaeological site.
- "Pompei" (with one "i") is the official name of the modern town that surrounds the ancient site.
Apparently, the second "i" got buried by Vesuvius along with everything else in AD 79.
