Information about Pompeii
For an absolutely wondrous vacation spot, Pompeii is unlike any other and totally outstanding. The city of Pompeii was an ancient Roman town-city near modern Naples in the Italian region of Campania and a magnificent area to visit. Pompeii has a Mediterranean climate, indicating that summers are sunny and hot, though they are alleviated by a gentle sea breeze. A close look into history is found within this city.
Pompeii, along with Herculaneum and a number of villas in the surrounding region, was mostly devastated and concealed under ash and debris in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. The objects that lay beneath the city have been well preserved for centuries as a result of the absence of moisture as well as air. These artifacts provide an extraordinarily detailed insight into the life of a city during the Pax Romana. Pompeii has been a tourist destination for over 250 years. The 2,000-year-old Schola Armatorum called House of the Gladiators had collapsed in November 2010.
This construction was closed to visitors; however, its outside was observable to travelers. Although no immediate conclusion as to what triggered the edifice to collapse, it has been suggested that water permeation after heavy rains might have been accountable. The Amphitheatre of Pompeii is the oldest surviving Roman amphitheater. It is located in the ancient Roman city of Pompeii, and was buried by the eruption of Vesuvius. Taking a trip to Pompeii is sure to be a unique and cherished journey to always remember.
