Photo Gallery

 "Pompeii was an ancient city located in what is now the comune of Pompei near Naples in the Campania region of Italy. Pompeii, along with Herculaneum and many villas in the surrounding area (e.g. at Boscoreale, Stabiae), was buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of volcanic ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79."

The city was completely covered in a thick layer of volcanic ash, and was eventually rediscovered in the eighteenth century. Since then, much of the city has been excavated and conserved. Today, you can visit Pompeii and see the sites as they were during the eruption, as well as explore the Roman-era architecture and learn about the daily life of the inhabitants. The buildings and their contents reveales day-to-day life in the ancient world. You can feel history while walking along a empty streets.
