Points Of Interest  

Roman archeology Points Of Interest (POI)

Italiano Leggi questa pagina in italiano

The Points of Interest (POI) uploaded to your GPS device allow you to easily reach all of the sites listed or to be alerted with sound or visual alarms in case you are passing close to each place. 

The current list includes also some points internal to walkable-only archeological sites.
In some cases it is possible to use the GPS device1 also as walking guide through complex remain areas such as the Pompeii town's ruins.

The language used as description for each place is a mix of english and latin, but very often it has been used the local language in order to allow the user to recognize and understand better the local directions.

From this page is possible to download the POI update for Navman devices and the following Garmin devices only:

- I2, I3
- C310, 320, 330, 340
- Nuvi (all types)
- Quest 2
