I did not expect the ruined city to be extensive enough that one can literally get lost in its narrow, cobblestoned streets. Though Pompeii is one of Italy's top tourist attractions it is not so hard to avoid their stream and enjoy a truly surreal experience, "off-limits" areas are pretty easily accessible.
