POMPEI EXCURSION

Pompeii, historical town, is one of the most famous archaeological site of the whole Italy. Its ruins are part of an ancient Roman city destroyed and buried by the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 A.D.. For 1500 years it has been covered by heaps of ashes until 1748, when excavations were started.

The city, with its elliptical plan, was divided by streets that intersecting themselves formed a net-shape. Now, itís possible see the Civil Forum, a big rectangular square, which was the very heart of Pompeii, the temples of Jupiter, Apollo and Vespasian, an imposing Amphitheatre where more than 12.000 spectators could attend gladiators shows and above all itís possible see the rests of everyday life as it was almost 2000 years ago: meals and bread just cooked, young lovers still sleeping and persons trying to find refuge under the arcades
