Panorama of Pompeii from defensive walls

Panorama of Pompeii from the defensive walls. Pompeii (Pompeii), also called Pompeii, was considered one of the most attractive cities of ancient Rome. The buildings were built with harmony and beauty.

However, on the 24th of October 79 CE a tragedy struck the city. The eruption of Vesuvius caused great damage to the city. Hopefully, the volcanic ash which covered Pompeii, let it remain without any serious deterioration and preserved the buildings and objects which allowed us to learn how did the Roman city life look like. Besides Pompeii, destroyed were also Stabiae and Herculaneum.
