Another temple with interesting details still in existence despite its history. Jupiter was just one of many Gods during the Pompeiian time.

Very much the iconic view of Pompeii and although only part is standing it has a real presence at the end of the forum showing its importance in the life of the people. Make sure you get a photo of the temple ruins with Vesuvius...More

While there has been a lot of destruction in the temple you still see the magnificence as it was the main temple in Pompei. The parts still standing tells the tails of this historical landmark

The Romans were no fools. They built the temple with Vesuvius right behind it. It’s an amazing site. Things are I very good shape and there is a lot of the temple left to see. I was surprised by the size. It’s really awesome.

When you get to the temple of Jupiter you will get an awesome view of Mt. Vesuvius. It makes for a great photo opportunity. It is very impressive.

The scale is impressive, not to mention the stunning architecture and attention to detail. They sure don't build them like that anymore!

Pompei has much more to see than you might expect, a must see and a must to have a guided tour as well.
