Pompeii and the Archaeological Museum of Naples
Pompeii is today, the most important open-air museum in the world. It was buried under a layer of volcanic ashes in the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Our expert will provide you with a detailed description of daily life in a Roman town.
The Archaeological Museum is one of the most important archaeological museums in Europe. The Renaissance-style palace houses frescoes, mosaics, statues, papyri and utensils discovered in the Vesuvian area (Pompeii, Herculaneum and Stabiae). Among its main collections, the Egyptian rooms and the secret cabinet, which shows about 250 erotic objects, reminding us of those infamous popular Roman pastimes.
This virtual tour will focus on the archaeological area of Pompeii. It will also include the artifacts discovered there and in the Vesuvian sites on display at the Archaeological Museum in Naples.
