Gli Scavi Archeologici di Pompei, Pompeii

4.4
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.

  • Wow! Plan a whole day if you want to get through it! The story that if reports is amazing. We did about half and it took us 5 hours, there's a piece or it takes less time, but very interesting. Not really accessible for people with reduced mobility

  • Talk about the beauty of the site is superfluous. among the most beautiful in the world. my contribution aims to be of use to achieve it. If you arrive by car stand in the parking lot adjacent to the sanctuary you will pay only 2 euro for the whole day, convenient than all other solutions and equidistant (100/150 m.) from the Basilica and from the entrance of the excavations. For the rest of the visitor and defend yourself annoying official guides, even intrusiveness. I have not experienced the Apple which I enclose in photos ... that could be a viable alternative to the jungle site proposals. Have a good trip

  • A large area eftet volcano disaster in 79 years is excavated, and because the ruins are well preserved, it is almost 2000 years later possible to get an excellent picture of life in the town before the disaster. In the month of november there is room for all the tourists who flock to.
