Pompeii

Print

Pompeii was partially destroyed and covered by the eruption of the Mount Vesuvius in a.D. 79 and since then it has been forgotten for centuries.

From 1700 up to now four fifths of Pompeii urban area have been dug out and it is the most popular archaeological site in the world.

Among the most fascinating sites of the excavations there are the Forum, which was the vital centre of the city, Jupiter and Apollo Temples and the Basilica, the most important public building, seat of the Court and economic life centre.

The forum is overlooked by the Vespasian’s Temple, dedicated to the royal worship and the Barns, where the cereals were collected.
