The luminous environment, temperate climate, and flourishing vegetation-mainly olive and lemon groves, palms, cypresses, oleanders and orange trees – along with the majestic landscapes are the background to the remarkable historical and cultural remains spread all around and make this lake the most charming in Italy.

Pompeii has been a tourist destination for more than 250 tears. Today, it is a World Heritage Site and one of the most popular tourist attractions in Italy, with approximately 2.5 million visitors every year. Once a thriving Roman city, Pompeii was destroyed by a cataclysmic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Ash and soot engulfed the entire settlement, killing nearly 3,000 people and preserving the city in its original state. This is one of the most visited archaeological sites in the city in its original state. This is one of the most visited archaeological sites in the world. Together with the neighbouring Herculaneum, which suffered the same fare, Pompeii presents an amazing opportunity to see how people lived nearly 2,000 years ago.
It was here-on a summer’s day in the year 79 AD-that Mount Vesuvius erupted, spewing volcanic ash over the prosperous city of Pompeii. Unaware of the imminent danger, most people continued on with their daily lives. As a result, the entire town and around 20,000 of its inhabitants were buried under tons of ash and burning pumice. Almost 2,000 years later, ancient Pompeii remains preserved and the artefacts on display provide a fascinating insight into life in the roman era. Enter the ancient site with your guide and see first- hand the houses, street and public buildings locked in time by the volcanic ash. See Pompeii’s ancient piazza and Forum, where business dealing, elections, speeches and processions would have played out during roman times. Wander the site, marvel at the ancient limestone columns still standing today and capture the centuries-old scenery on camera. Continue onward with your guide to the thermal baths, where many of the townsfolk would have bathed, chatted and lived out their daily lives before the eruption. Wander down Via Degli Augustali and discover the Lupanare, Pompeii’s brothel. A 2-storey building with five rooms on each floor, the Lupanare is decorated with some of the city’s most lustful frescoes. Explore the Casa dei Vettii, a luxury residence in the town. Careful excavation has revealed a number of beautiful frescoes on the walls of the house, evidence of the wealth and stature of its former inhabitants
