The excavations of Pompeii are extraordinary material evidence of the ancient world, thanks to the state of preservation of the city, which remained practically intact after the eruption of 79 A.D. erased it from the Vesuvian landscape. Pompeii is a unique example of a typical Roman city with its villas, homes, temples, the forum, the theater and spas. Most of the city was brought back to life with appropriate excavation and thanks to this, it is now possible to reconstruct with certainty the organizational life of the ancient Romans, their uses and their customs. It is a truly amazing place and a must to visit. At the end of the visit, we continue by bus towards Vesuvius, the volcano in which, with its eruption, buried the towns of Pompeii and Ercolano.
