🌋 Pompeii 🌋
More than an archaeological site, it is a moment in history that has remained frozen in time.
Located in Italy, not far from Naples, it is an extraordinary ancient city which was buried in 79 AD. BC following the eruption of Vesuvius.
A city which was completely frozen under several meters of volcanic sediments for almost two millennia until its rediscovery in the 17th century.
It would have been founded by Oscans (a people of ancient Italy whose origin remains unknown), even if at the time of its disappearance, it was a Roman colony.
A truly incredible site due to its remarkable state of conservation which constitutes an invaluable testimony to ancient Rome .
It thus conceals truly splendid archaeological and artistic treasures.
Amphitheater, temples, forum, terms, villas, sculptures, mosaics and even frescoes, the city is fascinating and magnificent.
