Destroyed city

Pompeji was an ancient city close to Napoli, Italy that was destroyed by an eruption of volcano Vesuvio in the year 79 CE. The city existed for 700 years until its history suddenly ended. Today 44 hectares are visible again and you can walk through houses and amphitheatres.

You can see mosaics, carafes and walk through ruins which let you feel the old city structure and the life within. Since 1997 Pompeji is a UNESCO world heritage site – two million tourists get here each year.
