“The ashes fell on the boats, hotter and thicker as they approached. Fragments of pumice and pebbles, blackened, burned and smashed up by the fire were falling down.. Then an unexpected slum, and the beach made impervious and unsuitable for the landfall…”
From the letters of Pliny the Younger

The Archaeological ruins of Pompeii represent an extraordinary historical evidence of the Ancient World, thanks to the conservation status of the city, remained intact after the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D.
Thanks to the excavations at the time of the Bourbons, in the XVIII century, that went on for more than a century, many districts, domus, frescos and objects were dug up.
The route crosses via dell’Abbondanza, the trade street of Pompeii, to reach public and religious monument like: Temples, Thermal Baths, Theatres, Shops, Gyms, the Amphitheatre and other massive buildings that arise in the Forum area.
The domus, nowadays, conserve wonderful frescos and marble decorations.
Thanks to the cast technique it’s possible to admire, like a picture, the bodies of the victims of the eruption.
