Pompeii’s sudden burial by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD resulted in the city being remarkably preserved under layers of ash and pumice.
Beyond the grand amphitheatres and temples, personal artefacts and even plaster casts of the victims capture poignant moments of the city’s last hours.
It’s not just a few buildings; it’s an entire city with homes, markets, bathhouses, and streets waiting to be explored.
Mineral-rich waters and a lazy river, surrounded by forests and mountain views.
It’s a living history lesson for students and enthusiasts to understand Roman culture, architecture, and society.
A trip to Pompeii can be combined with visiting Naples, the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento and Capri
Witnessing the fragility of life and the might of nature can be a profound experience.
