Pompeii (/pɒmˈpeɪi/) was an ancient Roman city near modern Naples in the Campania region of Italy, in the territory of the comune of Pompei. Pompeii, along with Herculaneum and many villas in the surrounding area (e.g. at Boscoreale, Stabiae), was buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of volcanic ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. Many of the inhabitants were also buried before they could escape.
The Vesuvius National Park is a world of biodiversity to explore step by step. Plan your visit to the Park and choose whether to hike.
Mount Vesuvius is a somma-stratovolcano located on the Gulf of Naples in Campania, Italy, about 9 km east of Naples and a short distance from the shore. It is one of several volcanoes which form the Campanian volcanic arc
Our tour went smoothly and Pompeii is very interesting. Hector was our guide and spoke English (and apparently German and Spanish) very well. He was very knowledgeable however some of his jokes fell flat because they were a dated. Hector, I think in an effort to cover as much as possible in 2 hours, moved very quickly. The ground is not smooth so some had trouble keeping up with him - in fact he left all 8 of us behind once. Please note that the entry fee is not included in this tour. The documentation does not make this clear so be prepared. We gave Hector 15 EUR/pp and he bought the tickets for the group.
