What people are saying:

It is recommended to go to the ancient city of Pompeii. You can take the train from Naples Central Station to Pompeii Station. It is a small tourist attraction in Italy, but it is worth a visit. The second largest city in ancient Rome that saw the sky after a thousand years of sleep. The ancient city of Pompeii (Pompeii) is an ancient city in the Campania region in the southwest corner of the Apennine Peninsula. It is about 240 kilometers from Rome, near Naples in southern Italy, 10 kilometers southeast of Vesuvius. On the day of August 24, 79 AD, Mount Vesuvius suddenly erupted, and the ash, about 5.6 meters thick, erased Pompeii from the earth without mercy.

Additional Information

Introduction

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.
