Following the mighty Mount Vesuvius’ destructive eruption in AD 79, the ancient city of Pompeii was little more than a distant memory. That is, until budding architect Domenico Fontana came across the site when digging a canal in the 16th century. Remarkably well-preserved for centuries thanks to a thick layer of volcanic stone from the Vesuvius’ eruption, the humble town of Pompeii stands today as a UNESCO heritage-listed site, providing travellers with a once-in-a-lifetime glimpse into ancient eras gone by. Stroll the streets of Pompeii and poke around in Pompeii attractions like the millennia-old homes, shops, temples, cafes, amphitheatres and even the local brothel. See how the other half lived during this age-old era, uniquely fossilised and now one of the most compelling archaeological sites to date.
