In these places you have to enter with devotion, they are an open-air museum, they are a museum without really being it. One day nature decided so … that day in 79 AD an immense amount of lava covered them forever. He has crystallized them, immortalized in an eternal sleep …
The view from there is breathtaking, from the first terrace you see some wonder, the crater of the old Somma, the lava flow of 1944, Naples, Ischia, Capri up to the top of the crater between the various fumaroles and you realize that staying there is something impressive.
Finally to Vesuvius …
On 24 August of the year 79 AD life flowed peacefully at the foot of Vesuvius, where charming towns rose, inhabited by wealthy landowners and animated by merchants, shopkeepers and skilled artisans. That day the fury of the volcano unleashed, at any moment, and the cloud of smoke that thickened the air was only the announcement of the most imminent catastrophe: a river of incandescent lava, ashes and burning lapilli in a few hours they covered everything. The fire of Vesuvius froze that day for about two thousand years, under layers of volcanic material that returned an open-air archaeological museum, thanks to excavations begun in the eighteenth century.
Today we will retrace those places together, starting from the city of Pompeii, its Domus, the streets, the market and the whole context of a civilization that has remained intact over the centuries. After a lunch break in one of the vines spread over Vesuvius, we will admire and touch with our hands what is now the volcano among the most dangerous in the world, Vesuvius.
