What to Expect
One of the most stunning archaeological sites on the Italian peninsula, Pompeii is also one of the most visited sites in the world. The ruins of the Greco Roman city are a veritable open-air museum, where visitors can walk through the city that remained buried in ash for hundreds of years.
It sits under the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, the only volcano on the European mainland to have erupted in the last 100 years, and is as fascinating as it is mysterious. With its perfect stone-paved streets, houses, temples, Forum, and theaters, it provides you with an almost complete picture of what was once a thriving Roman city.
Buried under a thick blanket of ash, the ancient city was destroyed by the sudden eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D., fossilizing thousands of citizens in less than 24 hours. For almost 2,000 years it remained hidden from the modern world, and it was only in 1748 that it was slowly recovered, thanks to the excavation campaign of Charles of Bourbon, the King of 2 Sicilies.
You will experience Pompeii much as it existed in ancient times. The devastating volcanic eruption dramatically suspended the city as it was going about its daily business. Stroll through the Forum, The House of the Faun, Il Lupanare, and the Teatro Grande, and discover this remarkable UNESCO World Heritage Site for yourself.
