Gli Scavi Archeologici di Pompei, Pompeii
(4.4/5 based on 12,000+ 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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Gli Scavi Archeologici di Pompei and many more Pompeii attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Pompeii tour planner.
