Despite having an illustrious history as an Oscan, Samnite and Roman settlement, Pompeii's best-known incarnation is, ironically, that of a buried city. Due to the numerous layers of volcanic mud and ash spewed forth by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D., Pompeii has preserved its Roman-era layout and offers a fascinating and detailed look into the daily life of its people. Since its unearthing in the late 18th century, Pompeii has remained one of the most important archaeological sites in Italy and is unparalleled in its preservation of an ancient city.

After meeting our docent in Naples, we will enjoy the short drive out to the archeological site of Pompeii. Taking advantage of this time, our docent will provide a historical narrative that will set up the context for viewing and understanding the city. Upon arriving, we will move swiftly on to the ancient roads, allowing us to explore homes, stores, temples and public spaces which narrate the social, cultural and political themes present in Pompeii. We will pay special attention to the construction and decoration of private homes, most notably the magnificent frescoes of the Villa of the Mysteries. The moving remains of the desperate inhabitants attempting an escape from impending doom create an immediate and emotional experience.

Our three and a half-hour delve into the reality of this city will be led by a docent who specializes in archeology or classic history, and who possesses a deep knowledge of the various aspects of the site of Pompeii and its context within the Roman empire.
