Pompeii was a humble Roman village whose destiny was changed irrevocably one day back in the year 79 AD. It was during this year that the nearby volcano, Mt. Vesuvius erupted, completely burying Pompeii in a massive blast of lava and ash that sealed the village away, perfectly preserved, for almost two thousand years.
There are indications that the amount of ash which originally covered the city was in excess of 20 feet tall.
In 1748, excavations began in the area, and since then numerous sections of the town have been uncovered and preserved. The city is rich is frescos, art objects, and some of the most well-preserved buildings of the time period that you can find anywhere in the world.
In fact, excavations are still ongoing and there are many mysteries left to be uncovered in the buried city. Will you be the one to find them?
Pompeii is one of only two sites in the entire world (the other being Herculaneum) where a visitor from modern times is literally able to step into the past, and experience what a Roman town was like nearly two thousand years ago.
