Pompei

Forever stuck in a pretty bad day 1,700 years ago.

out of 5

Pompei is a city frozen in time. The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD buried the city in ash and pumice, preserving it for over 1,700 years. Today, visitors can wander the narrow streets and squares, peer into homes and shops, and get a glimpse of what life was like in this vibrant Roman city. The Archaeological Museum houses some of the most impressive finds from the excavations, including the body of a man who was buried alive by the eruption. Don’t miss the Villa of the Mysteries, with its stunning frescoes, and the Temple of Apollo, one of the best-preserved ancient temples in Italy.
