Archaeological Areas of Pompeii

Buried under layers of ash and rock for over 1500 years, the archaeological remains of Pompeii, Herculaneum and the Villa Oplontis at Torre Annunziata serve as windows into the past. The Roman town of Pompeii was buried alongside the summer retreat of Herculaneum and numerous lavish villas when Vesuvius erupted on the 24th of August, 79 CE. Excavations began full-swing in the mid-18th Century, although the site was discovered several years before in the 16th Century. Frozen in time, these well-preserved vestiges of a once-prosperous civilization are a vivid reflection of the day-to-day lives of its people. While the remnants of Pompeii and Herculaneum present a more generalized picture of Roman society, the Villa Oplontis depicts the opulent lifestyle enjoyed by the rich. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with Herculaneum and Torre Annunziata, the baths, temples, burial sites, theaters and homes of Pompeii offer an invaluable insight into the history of the Roman Civilization.

Mount Vesuvius

Partially surrounded by the caldera of the ancient Mount Somma, Vesuvius looms over the Gulf of Naples, dominating the skyline for miles around. It is the only active volcano in mainland Europe, best known for the eruption of 79 CE that buried the flourishing Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Beneath layers of ash and rock, the remnants of this ancient civilization lay frozen in time, untouched by the rays of the sun for over 1500 years. Myths and legends surround Mount Vesuvius, hinting at the dangers that hide behind its bucolic exterior while adding to its allure. Perched on the western coast of Italy, Mount Vesuvius' formidable shape can be spotted from a vantage in the ruins of Pompeii.

Stadio Diego Armando Maradona

Located in the Fuorigrotta neighborhood of Naples, Stadio San Paolo is the principal multi-sport structure in the city. Built between 1948 and 1959, the arena underwent a remodel in 1990. It is the third largest of its kind in Italy, with a seating capacity of 70,240 hosting mainly soccer matches as well as concerts and other major events. Home turf of the SSC Napoli, a European football club, Stadio San Paolo is your go-to place for some heart-pumping sports action while in the city.

Virgiliano Park

Parco Virgiliano lies at the top of Posillipo hill with a view over the entire gulf from Sorrento to Pozzuoli with the islands in the distance. The park has lovely walks with superb views over the landscape that can be seen from the parapets in the park's main avenue. This is reached via a monumental entrance at the top of Viale Virgilio. Umbrella pines, eucalyptus and Mediterranean scrub cover an area where small avenues lead down the hill to terraces over the bays beneath, including the famous Trentaremi, or to small and modern amphitheaters. It is popular with Neapolitans even late in the evening; the park has a sports center with athletics facilities and body building equipment.
