A great example of a Roman road - cobbled road, raised pavements, kerbstones, drainage, stepping stones for pedestrians and deeply rutted stones on the road where the iron wheels of carts had repeatedly travelled. Also many splendid buildings along the Via Abbondanza - Casa del...More

I am very impressed! Underfloor heating, raised pavements and curb stones as well as a very real sense of timelessness. The Via Abbondanza is eerie as one can so very easily imagine those who came before this present generation going about their daily routines.

I found it interesting that the fountains and the water lines were so well preserved. I had no idea that the Romans were so ingenious that they could lay such small pipes and bring fresh water to their homes.

The ancient walkways and streets of Pompeii are still a beautiful way to step back in time. You can walk the streets and imagine how these ancient families lives, worked and played.

There was no tap in her mouth when I went and I suspect there wasn't one back in the day. Great stop on our Pompeii tour

This is one of the longest boulevards in any ancient city in Europe. The villas on this street make you realise the wealth of the citizens of Pompeii.
