Ask anyone from around the world to name a site of archaeological significance and most will immediately answer, ‘Pompeii!’
The site of Pompeii is of unparalleled importance and a trip to the area of Campania for those with even the slightest interest in history, culture, society or archaeology would be incomplete without visiting the town that was buried under a vast layer of burning stone and ash when the volcano they thought dormant, Vesuvius, erupted in AD79. Thanks to this layer of ash, everything was incredibly well-preserved so that visitors today can walk around an intact Roman town, enter houses, temples, amphitheatres and even a brothel, and truly feel what it was like to live in Roman times.
