12 days in Italy.I arrived in Milan and traveled to Venice,Bologna,Florence,Pisa,Rome and Naples.Traveled around these cities in Trenitalia.Which is one of the best and cheapest mode to travel within Italy.Stayed in hostels to minimize the cost of travel.I spent most of my time in Venice and Rome.Spent around 1 day each in Bologna,Florence,Naples and Milan.For the people planning to visit Pompei,make sure you start your journey early from Naples.It is advisable to visit mount Vesuvius and Pompei ruins later as the entry mount Vesuvius gets closed early during the second half of the day....

Weekend Getaways from Pompei 

15th JuneTime 2 PmTemp :- 14*CWhile in europe, flights costs very less and saves a lot the travel time also as compare to any other mode of transportation (If booked in advance).I did the same. Had an evening flight to Rome and reached around 11 30 pm to just to make it to the last bus to help me reach the hostel.Next 2 days were spent exploring each and every corner of Rome by foot. Rome has got some marvellous architecture dipped in gothic style.

About Pompei

"And the walls kept tumbling down on the city that we love Grey clouds roll over the hills bringing darkness from above But if you close your eyes, does it almost feel like nothing changed at all?" -Pompeii, Bastille These words by the British band 'Bastille' accurately describe what must have gone through the minds of those dying while buried under several layers of lapilli as Mount Vesuvius erupted on the 24th of August, AD 79, leaving a ghost town of what once used to be a thriving settlement. The ruins of the city, replete with its temples, forums, public baths, markets, theatres and even brothels for that matter are captivating. Taking a guided tour from the station itself is a great idea because the audio guides that are available at the ticketing counter for around 7 Euros aren't of much help owing to the fact that the numbers on the map do not correspond with the numbers on the ruins. Avoiding this ambiguity is imperative because there is a lot of walking involved anyway. Keep yourself hydrated. Getting there: Pompeii and Vesuvius share the same train station with Pompeii being right across. Circumvesuviana trains run from the Naples Central Station to Pompei Scavi-Villa Dei Misteri and the ride is around 40 minutes. You might not get a seat in the train so beware of pickpockets. You have to shell out around 6 Euros for a two way journey and it is a good idea to start a little early in the afternoon. Tickets for Pompeii are available at the entrance 'Porta Marina' which is next to the station and come for 11 Euros for an adult. If you are visiting during the summer, the closing time is 7:30pm and 5:00pm for winters. It is advisable to see Vesuvius and Pompeii together by spending the first half of the day exploring Vesuvius and devoting the second half to Pompeii.
