Sanctuary of Apollo

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.

Very little left, just a staircase up to a platform, with columns on either end but ... back in the day (6th century BC) it was a center for and of religion. The fact that Apollo was chosen god of this founding cult of the settlement points to the Greek and Etruscan influence in this region. It was completely redesigned... More

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

You get a bit of an idea as to the grandeur of this long lost temple, but much is missing. It is a peaceful place though with nice views back to Vesuvius.

One piece of advise: get a guide or join a tour group. Or get an excellent guide book on Pompeii. You will get so much interesting information from the guide and they will lead you to all the major points of interest inside Pompeii. We go solo on many world attractions but this was just easier to get a guide.... More

The Temple of Apollo is a Roman temple dedicated to the Greek and Roman god Apollo in the ancient Roman town of Pompeii. So much to see while at the ruins. Highly recommend hiring a tour guide. You learn so much more!
