No crowds, excellent ruins, fantastic informative guide. Did this on my own during a scheduled bus tour. Easy to reach the meet point by metro. Guide was outstanding. Learned a lot. You can stay as long as you want at the ruins and return on your own on the train. A highlight of my trip.Enjoyed as much or more than Pompeii.
