Pompeii is a Roman town frozen in time, thanks to a devastating eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Explore houses from modest to majestic; see Roman shops, baths and brothels; or apply your high-school Latin to the graffiti that's still visible on some of the walls. End your visit at the Villa of the Mysteries, and try to interpret its amazing, bizarre frescoes—scholars have debated their meaning for years.

This is an update to my previous review, Convivium has updated their website to include many more pictures of this beautiful Agriturismo. They have also placed a bigger sign outside which makes it easier to find! Check it out their website and this great restaurant!

Absolutely delicious!!! There is a take away section and a eat In section. We opted to eat in and had to wait 5-10 minutes for a table. So worth the wait. The restaurant is simple but the waiter spoke perfect English and was really friendly. We went for the 'completa'. You can get a regular and a large version of most of the options on the menu. I had the regular size and my husband had the large. They were so good!!!! One of the best things I tasted in Italy at a very reasonable price.

Tra gustose specialità campane, un’attenta selezione di vini e un ambiente raccolto ed elegante, il ristorante Garum - aperto dal dicembre 2011 dal titolare Fioravante Iovine – si farà ricordare per l’alta qualità delle materie prime utilizzate, per la varietà del menù (che alterna piatti fissi a quelli stagionali) e per l’attenzione alla tradizione locale, sapientemente rivisitata e rielaborata. Il piatto forte del ristorante – che è poi quello che dà il nome allo stesso – sono gli spaghetti al Garum, ovvero alla colatura di alici, versione “moderna” dell’antica salsa romana – detta appunto Garum – da cui con ogni probabilità discende.
We arrived at Garum after a recommendation from our B&B.
After Reading the TripAdvisor reviews, my husband chose the octopus salad and enjoyed this antipasti dish. He followed this with baccàla, another dish he enjoyed.
My 12 year old and I chose the steak with rocket & Parmesan... delicious. Our 8 year old enjoyed his calamari & pasta.
Certainly worth a visit!

Since we were staying at the hotel at this restaurant, we ate here 3 times during our stay. There was a wide assortment of traditional foods on the menu but we know the region is famous for its pizza so we tried a different one each time. Each one we chose was delicious. We ordered glass of wine to accompany the savory dinner and enjoyed the elegant and pleasant ambience outside in a covered area.

A great recommendation by the Welcome B&B! A contemporary dining room serving old world dishes. We ate there the night before our visit to the archeological site and it was an unexpected treat. The owner was charismatic and welcoming. Explained the slow food movement and the preparation of the traditional food of Old Pompeii. We felt further connected to this place that intrigues so many. Yuri not only wowed us with his knowledge, but with a song that put our experience over the top! I would recommend Vincanto to everyone visiting Pompeii.

Is located in the municipality of Trecase, in the province of Naples, right in the heart of the Vesuvius National Park. This is a magical place, with wonderful natural scenery and breath-taking views, certain to lift away any cares and absorb your attention. Maurizio Russo began his project by producing wines, following in the footsteps of his father, Giovanni, who first established the family business back in 1951. To the north lies the sea, and to the south the age-old grandeur of Mount Vesuvius. In between, is this truly amazing landscape, with vineyards and olive-groves planted in dark soil, rich in lava. Set amongst the green vines is a white building with our reception area where you will receive a warm welcome from a group of people who love their work and want to show their unique heritage to the world. The Cantina del Vesuvio estate covers 11 hectares of south-facing land, and is situated at between 250 and 330 metres above sea level. The vines with white grapes are raised on pergolas, while the red grape varieties are trained as espaliers. Our first oenologist was Amodio Pesce, a great expert on Vesuvian viticulture, who was then succeeded by his son, Antonio. Hospitality: The Cantina del Vesuvio does not only pursue the art of producing wines, but also a culture of hospitality. Over recent years, Maurizio Russo has managed to achieve a real miracle in this small municipality of Trecase. With his single-mindedness and determination, he has managed to introduce enotourism in this challenging and little-known area, working with dedication and respect for his vineyards and producing high quality wines which reflect the special features of the locality. Maurizio has won the respect and loyalty of those who come to visit his estate, to such an extent that nowadays many of the top tour operators from countries such as the USA, UK, Germany, France and Japan now include a visit to the Cantina del Vesuvio in their holiday package, together with the classic excursions to the Amalfi Coast, Capri and Pompeii.Our visitors are always glad to pay a return visit to the estate, set in such a delightful position with a forest of umbrella pines climbing the slopes of Mount Vesuvius and forming a magnificent backdrop to the vineyards. The view towards the coast is truly breath-taking: from the Gulf of Naples to the imposing bulk of the volcano, and with the Island of Capri lying directly in your line of sight. Food and wine: We have three rooms to receive our guests, with comfortable corners to relax in, plus a clubhouse situated in the middle of the vineyards, the Terrace of an old cottage once inhabited by vineyard workers. Visitors are welcomed by our attentive and efficient staff and can then enjoy the wonderful silence around them and store up memories for the future. We are one home, one family, with a shared sense of dedication. The dishes we offer our guests are prepared with love and care, using local ingredients. Our menu is simple but wholesome and based on traditional Mediterranean cooking. We make our sauce with little tomatoes from our own garden and superb virgin olive oil. The durum wheat pasta comes from the historic "Pastificio Setaro," while the bruschetta is made in our bread oven. Together with our hams, salamis and cheeses, you have all you need for a delicious and healthy lunch. Whether you are tourists, friends, day-trippers or simply enthusiasts from anywhere in the world: the Cantina del Vesuvio offers you a warm and expert welcome. The Cantina del Vesuvio produces and bottles its own wines, tending the vines with care throughout the year. From the cultivation of the vines, to the grape harvest to the final bottling: the whole process takes places on the estate. The vineyards are just 50 metres from the press, silos and bottling area.
This tour was prearranged for us by Private Day Tours. What a fantastic highlight on our trip. We enjoyed six different wines and a delicious lunch in an incredible vineyard. Because these wines are only distributed by Cantina del Vesuvio, it was a special treat knowing that you were enjoying delicious wines that you weren't going to find anywhere else. Loved the area, the wine, the lunch and the experience!

After visiting Pompeii and on our way to Salerno we stopped for a pizza and tasted probably the best Pizza during our 10 days Italy tour (This is actually our kid's verdict at the end of the tour).
Person who is making the pizza is so very friendly, warm and cheerful. Probably that reflect in the pizza he made too. If you are going for dinner then there is a land across the small street you can park (not sure during the daytime). Place is close to Pompeii and seems very popular among locals/regulars as so many locals were there.
