This excursion takes us to discover the most famous archaeological excavation: Pompeii and Herculaneum. During the Vesuvius eruption in 79 A.C., Pompeii was buried by ash and lapilli, Herculaneum was covered by a torrent of mud and ash . Thanks to the excavations stared in XVIII century and, still in progress, Pompeii offers the ancient scenary of the old streets, the thermae and, rich Roman’s Villa. Today is still possible to admire the frescos in the typical red “Pompeian”, adorning the walls and the floors of the villas. Because the torrent of mud that flooded it, Herculaneum kept intact many objects and many parts of the houses in wood, which are well admirable today. Anyway most part of the old city is still buried and, many treasures yet to be discovered. In the afternoon we came back to Sorrento.
