The most famous archaeological site in the world is not hard to name: Pompei. The luxurious resort for the Roman Empire, buried under the ash and lava erupted by Mount Vesuvius on August 24, 79 AD. At the time of its destruction, Pompei was a thriving commercial port in southwestern Italy.
While the first occupations at Pompeii date to the 6th century BC, the city grew slowly over the centuries, blossoming with the Roman occupation beginning in 81 BC. Mount Vesuvius. It’s one of the three volcanoes in Italy and still quite dangerous since it is the only explosive one left in Europe still active. You can actually see it from the highway on the way to Naples. It’s about 4200 feet high and at the bottom there are more than 700.000 people that live there. The last eruption was back in 1944 during the second world war and the eruption was filmed by the American soldiers which were occupying the area.
