Pompeii 龐貝古城 Part II
Pompeii is a ruined and partially buried Roman town-city near modern Naples in the Italian
region of Campania, in the territory of the commune of Pompeii. It was destroyed and completely
buried during a long catastrophic eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius spanning two days in 79 AD.
The eruption buried Pompeii under 22 meters of ash and pumice, and it was lost for nearly 1,600 years
before its accidental rediscovery in 1592. Since then, its excavation has provided an extraordinarily
detailed insight into the life of a city at the height of the Roman Empire.
There were many fascinating stories to listen to and things to see and if you have
the opportunity to see it, I recommend you do so!
