About this tour
Dear friends, this is another tour that we usually suggest to everyone who comes to visit my website, the whole world knows the story of the Roman city of Pompeii frozen in time by the volcanic ashes of Vesuvius during the eruption of 79 AD. ! Visit the most important ruins of Pompeii, and during this tour we also suggest to visit a small winery on the way where we can taste one of the beautiful vineyards of only wine in the volcano area, and if you want you can taste genuine local products combined.
Some curiosity about Mount Vesuvius & Pompeii :
1. It’s formed of two volcanoes!
That’s right; Mount Vesuvius doesn’t stand alone. While the ‘main peak’ is named Vesuvius, there is another mountain which is attached to it, Monte Somma. Atop this second mountain is a caldera, or crater, which was created following a previous eruption. Mount Vesuvius actually grew out of the top of Monte Somma.
2. The people of Pompeii didn’t realise they lived next to a volcano
Before the devastating eruption of 79 AD, the inhabitants of Pompeii had no idea they lived beside a volcano since it hadn’t erupted in around 1,800 years. In comparison, it’s been very active since, having erupted 6 times in the 18th-century, 8 times in the 19th-century and 3 times in the 20th-century. It last erupted in 1944.
3. Before 79AD there was no name for volcano
Following the devastating eruption, it was named after the Roman God of the Flame and Metal Forgery – Vulcan.
