This section of the Temple of Apollo is near the main entrance into Pompeii. The scenic grounds of large pillars, assorted buildings and vast area is pretty big. It is hard to visualize what this area must've looked like prior to the destruction of Pompeii.

This was more what we expected to see and we could feel the force of the destruction which took place and still appreciate the ancient temple.

This place is located within the main complex and although some of the pillars have unfortunately been victim to the volcano eruption. It still stands.

Unfortunately this site is mostly hidden in ruins, so you don't have a chance to look at it properly.

That is located something before the Forum of Pompeii looking in direction from the main entrance in the Scavi di Pompeii, that is, the Porta Marina. The Temple of Apollo is considered as the oldest religious building in Pompeii, dated even to 6th century B.C. What we see nowadays is mostly from 2th century B.C. There is one elevated podium...

Walking up the avenue of the stumps of the columns towards the 2 story building you can almost feel what it was like to have been there.

It is a part of the excavations and you must make sure to visit. It is impressive and fantastically preserved. When we visited it was a little crowded but that is to be expected in place like that.

Part of the Pompeii excavations. Loves every minute of it. A true wonder of the world. Fantastically preserved, many tourists however we were always able to see everything in lots of detail without being over-crowded. If it is a hot day it is a very must to bring water as it does get exhausting after walking around so much! Very... More
