History and teachings
Pompeii is an archaeological site near Naples, southern Italy, featuring the ruins of an ancient Roman town destroyed in 79 AD by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. It is the only archeological site in all the world that can still give a clear idea of the ancient Roman town. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Pompeii is one of the world’s most visited archaeological sites, 35 percent of the town, about 500 buildings, is currently open to the public. Its history is linked to all the other archeological Roman sites in Europe, but, what makes Pompeii exceptional is its unique character of being an ancient town “frozen in time”.
