Gli Scavi Archeologici di Pompei, Pompeii

(4.4/5 based on 13,000+ reviews on the web)
Gli Scavi Archeologici di Pompei, a World Heritage site, was once a thriving Roman city. The famous cataclysmic eruption of the nearby Mount Vesuvius in 79 CE destroyed it, as well as nearby Herculaneum, Stabiae, Oplontis and part of Boscoreale. When the volcano erupted, the entire settlement was covered with a deep layer of ash. Nearly 3,000 people died that day, and the ash quickly settled, preserving the city in almost its original state. Today, this is an open-air museum of the everyday life as it must have been when the ancient Roman civilization flourished here. Among the thousands of objects perfectly preserved by ash are ceramic pots, jewelry, furniture, and frescoes.

  • Go to Naples and don't go the the digging of Pompeii and like going to Rome and not go to the Vatican, the seat of transcends to the time of the eruption of the volcano which devastated the city, go early because it's a huge city realmnete you need to layout and light clothes especially in the summer because you're going to walk a lot, what's worth because the gloves and magician. Never go to the park without a map in my case is not with a guide I chose to go alone because you have more freedom, the point X and the moment you see people petrified and a feeling of pain and admiration by the bodies are intact after decades.

  • It is difficult to imagine that such sophistication existed so many centuries ago. The site is well managed and the available accesses give good views of the site. Give yourself at least 4 hours to do...  more »
