The Granary Market and Farewell to Pompeii, Italy

On the west side of the Pompeii forum (VII.8) was the granary market (VII.7.29), now used for the storage of supplies and artifacts.  Looking into various parts of the granary market, the visitor can see the plaster cast of the body of one of the former residents of Pompeii, the plaster cast of a dog that obviously died in anguish, statues, urns, and other artifacts.  On the south side of the forum is the Colonnade of Popidius in front of the City Archives (VIII.2.8) and the City Government Office (VIII.2.6).  Leaving Pompeii through the Piazza Porta Marina Inferiore, there are views of the rear of the Sarno Baths (VII.2.17-21).

One Response to The Granary Market and Farewell to Pompeii, Italy

    Thanks you so much for documenting your trip to Pompeii. I am going in about 10 days and want to see it all. I will be breaking away from a group tour to make sure I get to see it all. If I wanted to see all the major public buildings, how long would it take? One day, two days, three days?
