Pompeii Ruins :
It’s an incredible well preserved roman town buried under 20 feet of ashes during the main eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. , here , every year , about 3.000 000 tourists can live a very touching experience when they visit the recreation of the bodies made with chalk that show the agony of the inhabitants of Pompeii after the eruption, because of the hot gases coming from the volcano.
Herculaneum ruins :
located in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, Herculaneum was buried by the same eruption of the Volcano , but in a different way to Pompeii. Volcanic material and gases travelled down the crater and hit the ancient city at high speeds and at a very high temperatures. So Herculaneum was covered by 75 feet of hot mud and volcanic materials that “saeled” and preserved the city.
Oplonti ruins :
These excavations situated in the ancient Roman town of Oplontis the modern Torre Annunziata, about ten metres below modern ground level are made of two villas, but only one can be visited (the Poppea’s villa). Evidence suggests that it was owned by the Emperor Nero, and it is believed to have been used by his second wife, Poppaea Sabina, as her main residence when she was not in Rome.
En fact The elite of the Roman Empire use to spend long vacation time in their luxurious villas around the bay of Naples.
Here you will really understand how the aristocrats from Rome spent a good time enjoying the weather, the climate and the products of the Bay of Naples. You will see the best preserved frescoes and mosaics, things that are unfortunately not available in Pompeii.
