What travelers say:

[Pompeii] It has been over 3,000 years since its formation in the eighth century BC, when it was built in the small fishing village of the natural good port of the Mediterranean ~ Pompeii, and it gradually developed into a city. By the sixth century AD, the magnificent ancient city of Pompeii was completed. The town was the second largest after Italy and Rome. The magical temple of the sun, the colossus, the grand theater, etc., attracts the rich merchants and nobles of the Mediterranean surrounding the city, while the volcano Vesuvius in the north of the city, due to several eruptions, brings the ancient city of Pompeii with geothermal hot springs.

Additional Information

Introduction

The ancient city of Pompeii is located near Naples in southern Italy. It was once a small town with its back to the mountains and its front to the sea. After the whole city was destroyed by the sudden eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the northwest, its streets and houses were buried deep in volcanic ash, which nonetheless preserved the life scenes of Pompeii from more than two thousand years ago. Later, this huge archeological site was gradually excavated. Now tourists can visit remains that were once buried in ashes, such as the ancient Roman amphitheater, private mansions, and wall reliefs on the public square.
