“Pompeii. The liveliest of the dead cities” [cite Pliny The Younger]
Pompeii is not a ghost town, because everything you are going to see speaks about life, the life of 2000 years ago. It’s a city where men, women, children, merchants, craftsmen, politicians lived...and everything speaks about them. Pompeii was crystallized from the eruption of the volcano, but today you can relive it; here you can breathe this life, and we want to make you feel this life in the ruins.
As all history books witness, Pompeii was an important ancient Roman Town whose story was completely marked by the terrible Vesuvius eruption in 79 AD. As a result of the ruins' discovery in the 16th century and a lot of excavations, Pompeii is now an essential Italian tourist destination. Nowadays the Pompeii tour gives us the privilege to appreciate some following relevant attractions brought back to life, such as:
Pompeii was not the only town involved in the Vesuvius eruption: Ercolano, Stabiae, Oplontis were also destroyed during the terrifying eruption of 79 A.D. It means that an important archaeological richness characterizes some of the most famous Vesuvian towns situated on the foot of the volcano.
