Info about Pompei

Area:

Elevation:

Population:

Overview

Pompei is situated in the vicinity of Naples in the south-western part of Italy. The city is home to approximately 25,000 inhabitants. Pompei’s claim to fame is the ruined ancient city of Pompeii, at its outskirts.
A good time to visit is winter which is quite mild in this region. The weather is at its best in spring and autumn, but it can get very crowded. Summer temperatures escalate in July and August.
Pompeii was a lively city, rich in arts and culture and flourishing commercially. Little less than 2,000 years ago, Mt. Vesuvius erupted and set the entire city afire; ash and soil covered everything and solidified it with time.
It was rediscovered in the eighteenth century, and since, it has become an excavation site of great interest. Today, it is visited by over 2 million tourists every year.

Overall Guide : The ruins of Pompeii are on UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites list. A walk through the ruins displays life of the Romans as it would have been in the first century. The House of the Vettii, one of the biggest mansions... more with beautiful murals, the House of the Mysteries, displaying some unique frescoes, and the House of the Faun, containing an impressive bronze statue, are the town’s most important buildings. The citizens of Pompeii had two main venues for entertainment, the Amphitheatre, venue for gladiator battles and other competitions, and the thermal Bathhouse, displaying some vivid frescoes. The casts of the victims found during excavation have been filled with plaster to preserve them, and some of these are displayed in Garden of the Fugitives. The National Museum of Naples houses most of the discoveries made during the excavations. Herculaneum is a smaller excavation site in the vicinity, bearing a history quite similar to that of Pompeii.
