Fortunately, it happened to be a free day when we went, so it was not clear how much the tickets were. As for why they were free, because it was a friend who arranged to buy the tickets, he didn't ask carefully when he heard about the excitement of free, so he made up for it later. Generally speaking, it is very shocking, like history, or geology, archaeological friends must not miss. Having seen the movie Pompeii's Doomsday you know that Pompei was once one of the most prosperous cities in ancient Rome and was destroyed by the eruption of nearby Vesuvio volcano in 79 A.D. The site still shows the last moment of the victim's life. In order to avoid excessive destruction of ancient Roman human fossils, only part of the image based on the victim's prototype is now displayed. Later, the old masonry used for reconstruction was mixed with the bones of residents and livestock who had no time to escape by volcanic lava, and clear bones could be seen on the walls from time to time. The towering sculptures restored from the ruins overlook the new town silently. The mobile phone can not capture the shock of the scene. The Vesuvio volcano is still active today. So thank you, comrades, living in a scientific and developed today!
The ancient city of Pompeii is very magnificent and magnificent. It was an important port hub and shipping town at that time. Last year, it went to Pompeii on December 12. It was the native Italian who was responsible for explaining that the whole city was covered by volcanic ash. It is different from the movie Pompeii's doomsday. Just watch the movie.
Very shocking, I went in the off-season of January, tourists were very few, the city was empty, the silence was terrible, really a silent empty city, even photographs have to set up their own tripod self-portrait. But that made me feel more deeply that a famous city of businessmen disappeared overnight.
Pompeii, ten kilometres below the foot of Mount Vesuvius, suffered a major explosion on Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D., which left the then prosperous city, second only to Rome, dead with more than 20,000 people. Five or six meters of volcanic ash buries the whole city. More than 1500 years later, people realized that this was Pompeii, the ancient Roman commercial center, from the objects discovered one after another, and carried out excavation work. Pompeii covers 65 hectares of land and is a volcanic eruption 56 meters high. How big a project is it to excavate the ancient city of Pompeii? From the site, the streets are straight and crisscrossed. Residential, commercial and public living areas (temples, theatres, markets) are planned regularly.
Marble and stone sculptures represent public toilets in different streets. At that time, there were public baths. There were so many angel sculptures. The plumbing of plumbing was harmful to human health. We should pay attention to the establishment of manger, the close-minded roadside stone houses, the rich houses and the genuine and powerful technology of gypsum model historical restoration.
Unfortunately and fortunately, the remains of a thousand years ago were completely preserved by the ash of Mount Vesuvius. It is hard to imagine that the civilization of BC had developed to such a degree that the roads and cars were separated and divided into one-way street, two-way street and pedestrian street. Zebra crossing had already been invented. Needless to say, the opera house and theatre, as well as geothermal facilities and saunas, the ancient Romans could not help enjoying life too much.
Because of volcanoes, Pompeii is probably the only ancient city in the world that has been preserved entirely according to its historical origins. It is our luck to see the past through history, but it is also the great misfortune of the Pompeii people. Pompeii's official website failed several times in the payment of tickets, and decided to buy tickets at the scene by chance, resulting in a failure to queue for more than an hour. It is suggested that we buy in advance to save time. It's very important to do a good job of sun protection. The train can go straight to Pompeii, because we are going to Naples, so we chose a charter train. 2-3 hours of tour time is not enough. It's almost enough for the party to sign up for this tour. Ancient Pompeii already had tap water, which is quite advanced, but the plumbing made of lead poisons people and reduces their life. Is it advanced or not?
The ancient city of Pompeii is currently open to tourists through three gates to the south. The main entrance for individual tourists is opposite the Weisuvi Loop Railway Station, also known as the Ocean Gate. The Ocean Gate was the most spectacular of the seven gates in Pompeii at that time. We entered from here, all the way up a small slope, with rugged stones underfoot. Pompeii is bigger than expected. Fortunately, it downloaded Chinese instructions and maps on the official website before departure. Otherwise, only English maps would be available at the scene. It would be totally confusing to enter the ancient city. Even if we have made full preparations in advance, it is easy to get lost in the ancient city. Many of the houses we want to see are still not found in the end. It is not enough to spend most of the day visiting the ancient city.~
Pompeii is a large ancient city. It takes half a day to visit it. It can choose the scenic spots inside, such as central square, bathing ground, theatre and Exhibition hall. The roads inside are all stone roads of different sizes. It is not recommended to wear high-heeled shoes. You can find an angle to photograph Pompeii against Mount Vesuvius. The central square is a good choice of scenic spots.
The Grand Theatre of Pompeii is located at the easternmost end of Pompeii. It was founded in the 1st century B.C. and can accommodate nearly 20,000 people. It is the oldest amphitheater in ancient Rome. It is more than 40 years earlier than the Colosseum in Rome. There are three floors of auditorium, the top of which still retains the pillars supporting the roof.
