Overview

Owing to the eruption of the volcanic Mount Vesuvius in 79 CE many Roman cities and towns were buried. In the modern age, these partially buried regions were re-discovered, and the Archaeological Areas of Pompeii is one such treasure. Herculaneum, Pompeii and Torre Annunziata were completely lost for nearly 1500 years. Declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO it attracts tourists, archaeologists and geology students from all over. A visit to the excavations gives you a pretty good idea of what life must have been like here two thousand years ago. Truly, a must visit for history lovers!
