Pompeii is one of the most popular tourist attractions around Naples and if you choose to opt for this excursion you will not be disappointed. The city of Pompeii was destroyed by the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. It was completely buried under meters of ash and pumice and remained unknown to the rest of the world for nearly 1700 years until it was discovered by pure chance. Since then, excavations and restoration work never stopped and Pompeii was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Thanks to the immense amount of research and restoration you will be able to relive what it was like to live in a Roman city thousands of years ago and you can be sure to experience something you won’t forget.
