Virtual Tour Discover Pompeii with Archaeologist
What you'll learn
This online tour is an appetizer of Pompeii: we will "escape" from our home and move back into Roman times! I'll tell you the history of the city, from the beginning to the eruption, and then to the discovery. You'll get an introduction to the daily life of 2000 years ago, discovering the private and public buildings that characterize the ancient city. During our virtual trip, we will visit some of the main attractions as the Amphitheater (Roman gladiator stadium), the Thermopolium (Roman snack bar), and the Forum (main square). I'll also share the techniques that archaeologists use to create the plaster casts of the victims of the eruption of the Vesuvius. Looking at maps videos and photos, you will have a taste of the Roman times that'll give you an idea for a future offline visit. Of course, I'll be happy to answer all of your questions, too!
