Meet your licensed Guide by the ticket office (he/she will be holding a sign with your name on it to be recognized), skip the line to get the tickets and start to enjoy a two hours and half guided walking tour focusing on the many inscriptions and graffiti found on the Pompeian walls…

There have been numerous examples found in Pompeii, including taverns and houses, as well as on pottery of the time. In many cases the graffiti tend toward the rude, phallic images, as well as erotic pictures. Other forms of inscriptions are related to the political elections and product advertising. Although many forms of Roman graffiti are indecipherable, studying the graffiti left behind from the Roman Period can give a better understanding of the daily life and attitudes of the Roman people with conclusions drawn about how everyday Romans talked, where they spent their time, and their interactions within those spaces.
