Pompeii: Romans were not the first here
Pompeii was originally settled around the 7th century BC by the Oscan people who were descendants of the Neolithic inhabitants of Campania (the region of southern Italy). The port city was in a prime location for trade as well as farming. The rich volcanic soil from earlier eruptions of Vesuvius created prime farmland for grapes and olive trees.
Only in the 1st century BC the city became the Roman colony. Discover everything about Pompeii on a private tour with us!

One of the highlights of why I'm in Italy is to walk through & learn more about the life of (UNESCO World Heritage) Pompeii! Can't wait to share the pix & my experience to my students when teaching the topic on Tourism.
One of the most modern & sophisticated Roman cities that was buried under 6m of volcanic ash & pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD79.
A story that was similar to Prophet Luth & his people when the town was also buried due to explosive volcanic eruption.
