A whole day immersed in the Ancient Rome, through the excursion of Pompeii and Oplontis - both destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius, which took place in 79 a.D.
Many books have been written about Pompeii, a town which was even more cosmopolitan than Rome, that was several days way of travel. When Vesuvius erupted, the most part of the city was undergoing reconstruction following the great earthquake in 62 AD and obvious signs of the effort for the reconstructions have emerged in the excavation.
Oplontis is an archaeological jewel of the Bay of Naples. Situated between Pompeii and Herculaneum, geographically it corresponds to the town of Torre Annunziata. The excavations, which were carried out in Oplontis between 1964 and 1984, have brought to light numerous villas, among which Villa B, today known as the Villa of Lucius Crassius Tertius. Inside the villa, the diggers found piles of amphorae containing goods as wine, oil and other agricultural products. Based on this finding, the building was classified as a sort of shopping mall where the goods were produced, processed and sold. These discoveries, along with the discovery of Public Baths found in 1834, helped archaeologists classify Oplontis as a medium-sized town. Although it was part of the outskirts of Pompeii and was subject to its administrative control, Oplontis had sufficient infrastructure to be considered a well-developed residential centre.
