Baby Changing Facilities
There are three Baby Changing Facilities in three locations of the ancient city: in Via dell’Abbondanza, Via di Nola, and at the corner of Via Stabiana and Via della Fortuna. These facilities, like other services and facilities offered by the Archaeological Park, aim at granting visitors a more comfortable visit and meeting their needs. Another such example is the ‘Pompeii for All’ project with accessible and barrier-free paths providing improved access to the site to parents with buggies and mobility-impaired people.
The Archaeological Park toilet facilities are located near the access points of Piazza Anfiteatro, Piazza Esedra and Porta Marina, near the Casina dell’Aquila, the Antiquarium, Quadriportico, The Chora Cafe and the Villa of the Mysteries.
