Travel Through Time in Pompeii.
Pompeii stands as the most captivating and renowned archaeological site globally. The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. entombed the city under a ten-meter thick layer of ash and lapilli. The vast majority of Pompeii’s citizens fled their homes, meeting their end on the coastline. The few who stayed behind perished in their homes’ underground areas, their casts now bearing testament to the catastrophe. A stroll through Pompeii’s excavations offers a unique journey through time, where you can grasp the antiquity’s day-to-day atmosphere. Notable landmarks include the Villa dei Misteri, known for its magnificent frescoes, and Via dei Sepolcri, a street lined with burial monuments leading to Herculaneum. Visiting Pompeii takes approximately two hours.
Unearth the Secrets of Herculaneum.
Herculaneum, once consumed by mud and lava, reveals its history slowly through excavation. King Charles of Bourbon initiated the official excavations in 1738. By 1927, the digging of houses and public buildings began in earnest. Herculaneum was once a resort for wealthy Romans, with lavish sea-facing villas offering compelling evidence. The city’s streets, paved with Vesuvian lava or limestone, form the characteristic road grid. The house of the Mosaic Atrium, named for its black and white floor, is one of the city’s most beautiful residences. The Baths of the Forum served as the city’s primary public baths. The partially excavated Villa dei Papiri is also accessible. A tour of Herculaneum typically takes one hour and forty minutes.
