The excavations of Pompeii are a very suggestive and moving in certain places. In 79 A.C., the city was hit by mount Vesuvius eruption. For the inhabitants of that era there was no escape, the lava covered their bodies and the entire city. For thousands of years ancient Pompeii was forgotten and only in 1748 some excavations brought to light the first historical artefacts. Today thanks to the skilled work of archaeologists and historians, we can admire the remains of the Roman city in all its splendour. Buildings, ceramics, mosaics and objects of the time in excellent condition represent the most important testimony of the Roman people.
