Pompeii: things to know and tips

Pompeii, excavated for about four-fifths of its entire urban area, is the most important and famous archaeological site in the world. It represents a treasure of a priceless historical value, as it’s the one and only excavation (along with that of Herculaneum) that can give back to the visitor an ancient Roman town in a condition of perfect preservation.

The eruption of Mount Vesuvius on that tragic morning of 79 AD buried Pompeii under a blanketof ash and lapilli, almost 10 meters thick, and thanks to these same volcanic materials the city has remained intact over the centuries till the present days.

Walking through the ruins of Pompeii is a unique experience, almost like taking a trip back in time: you can breathe the atmosphere of public life in ancient times. In fact you can visit the private residences, luxurious or humble, preserved with all the items of Roman shops, taverns, bakeries and markets; but even the big gym, the temples and the court, which was the centre of the Pompeian social life.

An exciting tour of the archaeological site of Pompeii, possibly with the company of an experienced guide, is absolutely fundamental for anyone who is visiting the Campania region.
