A LOT of graffiti is present in Pompeii
not even contemporary graffiti. The graffiti that covers Pompeii is not a result of disrespectful tourists; rather, it dates from before the eruption. Private messages, public announcements, and election notices are just a few examples of how it provides tourists and historians with a remarkable window into Roman society. On one of our Pompeii tours from Rome, you can see all of this graffiti while imagining yourself going about your daily business in an ancient city.
