Description

History

Ancient Pompeji was located in Campania close to Naples and became famous on august 24th, 79 A.D. when the vulcano Vesuvius broke out and buried the city in ash. The almost 700 year old town and its

20 000 inhabitants were buried completely and therefore were preserved for posterity. Walking through Pompeij feels like being back in time. Many preserved buildings like the brothel, where you can still see erotic paintings on the wall, help you understand life in earlier times. Pompeji really deserves being a UNESCO world heritage.

 

Comprehensive water supply, sideways, non-traffic zones and public thermal baths, all provided in old Pompeji and all you needed for a good life in ancient world.
