Admire the glorious past of the Roman Empire through its most famous ruins.
My explanation will start from the facts that preceded the AD 79 eruption. I'll tell the historical testimonies of people who lived in that time. And then I will show you the remains of the village after the catastrophe, illustrating the architecture of the buildings, the streets, the political life, the habits of the different social classes, and obviously the story of art.
Pompeii is the only archaeological site in the world that you can visit older than 2000 years exactly as it was because of the eruption materials covered the buildings completely. During the visit, we will aim to see, the baths, the forum, the frozen citizens of Pompeii etc.
