What people are saying:

Pompeii was an ancient city in Rome, and when the eruption of Vesuvius in 79, it was buried 4-6m deep under volcanic ash and pumice. As a result, most of the city is preserved under ash, providing a unique snapshot of life in Rome, frozen when buried by volcanic ash, and providing a very detailed insight into the daily lives of its inhabitants. Once a wealthy city, it was filled with fine public buildings and luxurious private houses decorated with fine furniture and art.

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.
