Nestled at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, is Pompeii. Throughout the height of the Roman Empire, it was quite the lively city. As a result of a volcanic eruption, the town was covered in molten lava and ultimately "frozen in time." The city laid silent for almost two thousand years, until it was excavated. A picture of life in Roman times was revealed. What lies beneath was the town of Pompeii, perfectly preserved because of the layer of volcanic ash that had covered it for centuries. Today it remains one of the most compelling archaeological sites and by far one of the most visited Italian attractions. We will take a guided tour of the site, where we will see the houses, theatres, arenas, temples, and public buildings where its original inhabitants lived, worked, played, and worshipped. Lunch is included.
What to bring: Water, comfortable walking shoes, hat, sunscreen.
