Nothing compares to the magic and mystery of Pompeii. You view the seemingly tranquil Mt. Vesuvius and then walk among the remains of a city buried underneath 30 feet of ash during its violent eruption. Pompeii transports you back in time to antiquity. The affluent Roman
town burried during the devastating aruption of Mt. Vesuvius in A.D. 79
gives a complete picture of what daily life must have been like 2000
years ago. Baths, theatres, taverns, shops and houses show striking
sophistication of its inhabitans.
The undervisited Villa Poppei in Oplontis, a short drive from Pompeii,
was once a beautiful sea from residence of a wealthy family. The area to
visit is small but it worth stopping by to see magnificantly preserved
frescoes, some of the best from Ancient times.
