Easy Day Trips From Tre Cancelle

to Pompeii, Herculaneum and Vesuvius


  



Pompeii and Herculaneum / Ercolano, two Roman towns preserved in time when the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, in 79AD  caused them to be engulfed by a pyroclastic surge of searing hot toxic gas and volcanic ash.  These ancient Roman settlements lay buried for 1600 years, however archaeological excavations of these sites have provided an intriguing insight into Roman life.



The site at Pompeii is large and spread out, with the remains of a Roman forum, a Basilica, an Amphitheatre, a  Gymnasium, Baths, Botanical gardens, shops, bars, bakeries, villas and even a brothel. The ancient streets are paved in large flat volcanic stones, some visibly worn away by Roman carts.
