"Visiting Pompeii - About 10..." Day Trip to Pompeii Tip by Andrew_Mc
Day Trip to Pompeii, Naples: 27 reviews and 37 photos
Visiting Pompeii - About 10 feet (3 m) of tephra fell on Pompeii, burying everything except the roofs of some buildings. The city was abandoned and its location forgotten. In 1595, excavations discovered artifacts at Pompeii and centuries of pillaging followed. Archeological excavations began in the mid-nineteenth century. Now, much of Pompeii has been excavated and it has revealed much about how people lived during that time (and died during the eruption). There are numerous molds of people in their final moments.
