What To Expect
Pompeii Archaeological Park
An english - speaking driver will come to your hotel in Rome, and make you board in a mercedes air - conditioned minivan or sedan-Then you will make your way to Southern Italy. To reach Pompeii it takes long approximately 2 hours 20 minutes. Once there, you will meet a licensed guide who will take you through the excavations for 2 hours. Largely preserved under the ash, the excavated city of Pompeii offers a unique snapshot of Roman life, frozen at the moment it was buried and providing an extraordinarily detailed insight into the everyday life of its inhabitants. Organic remains, including wooden objects and human bodies, were entombed in the ash and decayed away, making natural molds; and excavators used these to make plaster casts, unique and often gruesome figures from the last minutes of the catastrophe. The numerous graffiti carved on the walls and inside rooms provides a wealth of examples of the largely lost Vulgar Latin spoken colloquially, contrasting with the formal language of the classical writers.
Pompeii is a UNESCO World Heritage Site status and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Italy, with millions of visitors every year. Nothing better than this site can show you the ancient roman life!
After Pompeii, you will go take a look of "what" made Pompeii at this current shape. The volcanic cone of Vesuvius. Mount Vesuvius or active volcano that rises above the Bay of Naples is best know for the eruption in 79 AD. The territory of the Vesuvius National Park is rich in natural resources, history of volcanology, breath-taking landscapes, age-old cultivations and traditions that make the Vesuvius area one of the most fascinating and most visited places in the world.
