What travelers say:

Pompeii, Italy, was buried under 4-6 meters of volcanic ash and pumice when the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. The excavated city, mostly preserved under ashes, provides a unique snapshot of life in Rome, frozen at the moment it was buried, and provides a very detailed account of the daily lives of its inhabitants.

Additional Information


The ancient city of Pompeii is located near Naples in southern Italy. It was once a small town with its back to the mountains and its front to the sea. After the whole city was destroyed by the sudden eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the northwest, its streets and houses were buried deep in volcanic ash, which nonetheless preserved the life scenes of Pompeii from more than two thousand years ago. Later, this huge archeological site was gradually excavated. Now tourists can visit remains that were once buried in ashes, such as the ancient Roman amphitheater, private mansions, and wall reliefs on the public square.
