Rome may not have fallen in a day, but Pompeii did – literally! It took just one day – 24 August, 79 AD, for it to get buried for the next seventeen centuries, under the volcanic ash of the fierce Mount Vesuvius.
A skip-the-line Pompeii ticket allows you to dodge the long lines and enter the excavation site where Pompeian villagers and aristocrats once went about their daily activities. If you believe Pompeii was just another Roman city with its myriad tales of warfare, gladiatorial fights, historical monuments and grandeur? Think again. During the first century AD, the city developed into a sprawling tourist destination with luxurious resort for its wealthy visitors, Roman villas, an amphitheatre, several temples, brothels and highly mechanized waterway systems.
Off to the past and on to the present, Pompeii is now a major tourist attraction. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it attracts more than 2 million visitors every year.
The lost city of Pompeii has an intriguing tale. Get, set to travel back in time and experience it like never before!
