- Pompeii is a city frozen in time since the eruption in 79 AD. Everyday life and gestures here have become a snapshot for posterity. Strolling through the streets of this community not only presents architectural and artistic wonders but also offers scholars a stream of information about the daily life of a Roman city.
- You will visit the Marine Gate that provides access to the Forum, the center of the city's political and economic life. The area is dominated by the Temple of Jupiter, built around 250 BC, and the Basilica, Pompeii's most impressive public building, used at the time both as a court house and as a place for commercial dealings.
- The Street of Abundance is the lower decumanus of Pompeii. Along it are many of the most beautiful houses in the city, some on two floors, belonging to the rich Pompeian bourgeoisie, with many colorful decorations which you can photograph.
- You will see the House of the Ancient Hunt, the original layout of which dates back to the mid-2nd century BC, with its refined frescoed pictorial decorations, and the House of the Faun, a sizeable, noble private residence covering an area of 3000 square meters.
