Explore an Ancient City and Be Left in Awe on a Private Tour of Pompeii
When you explore this Ancient City, you will be left in awe on a Private Tour of Pompeii because this city is world famous for its uniqueness.
On the foot of the volcano, Mount Vesuvius, lies the ruined city of Pompeii that was encased with around six meters of ash and pumice stone after the volcano erupted in AD 79.
Excavations started on the abandoned city in the 18th century and to date, almost three-fifths of the city have been uncovered. When you think that the city had three kilometres of city walls, that is a lot to be uncovered, especially as it is hard, long and tedious work.
In the early stages of excavation, any artefact that was discovered went directly to the museum in Naples, but since 1911, the archaeologists leave all artefacts in the place they are found.

Italy has a typical Mediterranean climate which means that it is cool in the winter with a good bit of rainfall. The northern mountainous areas have snowfalls that can be extreme during January. In Southern Italy however, the temperature rarely drops to freezing in the winter. The summer months are very hot with temperatures rising to 32-degree Celsius or higher. Spring and Autumn's months have lovely warm days and chilly nights. The vivid impression comes from the remains of the homes, public places and even shops.
It is hard to imagine that although many escaped the volcano, around 2,000 people were carrying on their normal life before being covered in ash, but the evidence is there for all to see.
One can definitely say that the city of Pompeii was a very unlucky city because 16 years before the volcano eruption, Pompeii suffered major damage in an earthquake and they were still rebuilding when disaster struck.
