Pompeii is one of the most important examples of Roman civilization which may be considered as an open book on arts, cultures, costumes and lifestyle from the past. The city has been preserved over the centuries and has remained the same as when, as a result of the enormous eruption of Vesuvius, was entirely submerged by vast sheets of lava. It was the year 79 AD.

 

Herculaneum

The city of Herculaneum, already severely damaged by the earthquake of 62, was completely destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius (79), which covered the town with an impressive mass of mud, ash and other eruptive materials. Together with Pompeii Herculaneum is one of the most important example of Roman civilization in Italy.

Today the site is occupied by the modern town of Torre Annunziata. The Villa Poppaea is an ancient Roman seaside villa situated in the ancient Roman town of Oplontis.
