Day trip to Pompeii
Everybody in the world knows Pompeii.
Videos, films, articles tell all details of the day that the eruption of Volcano Vesuvio tokeaway thousand of people’s life away.
Today the ghostly ruins of ancient Pompeii (Pompei in Italian) make for one of the world’s most engrossing archaeological experiences.
Much of the site’s value lies in the fact that the town wasn’t simply blown away by Vesuvius in AD 79 but buried under a layer of lapilli (burning fragments of pumice stone). The result is a remarkably well-preserved slice of ancient life, where we can walk down Roman streets and snoop around millennia-old houses, temples, shops, cafes, amphitheatres, and even a brothel.
