With a guided tour in Pompeii and Herculaneum, you can begin your exploration of the mystery of the two towns were time was "frozen" and where you can see all the aspects of the roman everyday life.
In the first century AD the Roman Empire had many cities, but none located in a more beautiful setting than those lining the Bay of Naples.
On August 24rd, 79 AD, Pompeii looked like any other bustling, prosperous ancient city but just three days later, on August 26th, the city fell silent and the place itself had literally vanished from the face of the earth.
Gradually grass and vines covered the land where the towns had stood and the local people eventually forgot even their names.The imagination of Europe was ignited and suddenly, the classical world was in vogue. Philosophy, art, architecture, literature and even fashion drew upon the discoveries of Pompeii and Herculaneum for inspiration. The Neoclassical movement was under way. Now, more than 1900 years after that fateful August morning, we are learning more and more about the last days of Pompeii.
