During this phase of gradual reopening, it will be possible to enter and leave the archaeological area of Pompeii through the Piazza Anfiteatro Gate.
The visit will take place along a route that is indicated both at the site and on the My Pompeii support app, in order to ensure a safe visit to the site in full compliance with the anti-COVID health provisions.
It will be possible to walk inside the Amphitheatre, visit the Large Palaestra and access the ‘Venustas: Grace and Beauty at Pompeii’ exhibition. It will also be possible to visit the Praedia of Julia Felix, and walk along Via dell’Abbondanza, taking in the main domus, but also explore the Porta Nocera necropolis and the Garden of the Fugitives, before reaching the Theatre Quarter and the Triangular Forum. From Via dell’Abbondanza, one can reach the Forum, with all of its public and religious buildings, and visit the external area of the Stabian Baths, or proceed along Via Stabiana as far as Via del Vesuvio, where one can admire the House of Leda and the Swan.
