What is Pompeii?

As you probably already know, Pompeii was once a thriving Roman city that was buried under volcanic ash after a violent eruption from Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. A tour of this vast archaeological site features ancient streets, houses and ruins, giving you a sense of daily life in the Roman times. 

Garden of the Fugitives 

The most heartbreaking section of Pompeii is the Garden of the Fugitives, where plaster replicas show the last moments of the men, women and children who were stopped in their tracks, asphyxiated by gases from the eruption and then slowly buried in ash.
