Details

A guide for travellers and armchair travellers alike, we visit each building in Pompeii, beautifully photographed and described. The discovery of the lost city of Pompeii destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in 29AD was a turning point in the understanding of the ancient world. For the 1st time an intact way of life had been preserved, caught as if in a photograph, showing daily life from noble villas to the simplest of Farmhouses. While this is important to the archaeologist and historian, everyone who enters the city is gripped by a sense of genuine adventure. It is this sense of voyaging into the past that is captured by Salvatore Nappo in his livley text, while the photographs and maps make both the site visitor and the armchair travvler aware of a moment inhistory that through a cataclysmic event will endure for ever.
