Attractions to visit in Pompeii Tour
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 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:
- The remains conserved in the Antiquarium Museum. This building contains several ancient objects as amphora, containers, statues representing divinities etc. Thus, this Museum constitutes a testimony of the inhabitants’ every-day life.
- The Ancient Teatro Grande and Teatro Piccolo. These very aged theatres increase in a considerable way the historical and artistic heritage offered by Pompeii.
- The Pompeii forum. All Roman cities were built with the idea to locate forums at the centre; this is due to the conviction that the roman square represented the social life core. As a matter of fact the forum was the part of the town where markets took place and people met to talk about different topics. Once entered the forum, tourists will be able to admire the Temple of Jupiter.
- The Stabian Baths. It was a structure very much appreciated by Romans: it was regarded as the place where roman citizens could relax and restore themselves.
Pompeii was not the only town involved in the Vesuvius eruption: Ercolano and Torre del Greco were involved too. It means that an important archaeological richness characterizes these towns. The Pompeii tour includes also an interesting walking among these memorable places.
