The decorative style of pompeii was something completely new and different

The Etruscans and the Greeks had a major role in the creation of the city of Pompeii, in the region of Campania, Italy. It is situated at the foot of the volcano Vesuvius. Soon the city boasted an Hellenistic ambiance and the decorative style of Pompeii was something completely new and different. Big houses were built and, with the construction of the Serino aqueduct, running water was introduced to the region.... Therefore multiple sources were installed not only inside the house but also in the streets, which represented a real breakthrough for that time. The sources of the most sumptuous private homes were decorated with colorful mosaics and the streets were made of stone. The décor both inside and outside the homes, as with the temples and / or public buildings, also displayed statues, which visitors can admire even now, after being buried by lava from Vesivio volcano and being the object of many different excavations.

Pompeii family: a lesson of history

In my opinion, but in my experience, most of the locations may be appropriate for my family, though, if you are traveling with children too small, you must make some concessions, such as alternating visits with other moments of beach pool, playground, theme parks ... We made the first trip of its kind when our daughters were only 5 years, but since that long ago, so I have photographs on paper and slides only, leave that trip for another time . Now I am going to focus on one of those places that everyone knows. Who has not ever seen a documentary on Pompeii, even a movie. But none of that has to do with the experience of being there, walking the streets, peering into their homes and still see the charred doors, burnt cots, shops and taverns as they were nearly two thousand years ago ... the remains of people and animals trapped by the volcanic ash of Vesuvius while sleeping ... The terrible eruption of Vesuvius on 24 August 79 the city preserved from erosion and looting for nearly two thousand years, so it is easy to get an idea of ​​what daily life in the Roman Empire. Pompeii was a major in the first century big city bustling with activity, so today still shows plenty of spots typical of a large city at the time: you can stroll through the theater, the Odeon, the basilica, agora, gymnasium, enter nobles or travel holiday streets more modest houses, with their "patter" high, taverns or establishments selling prepared foods, some of which are still visible billboards , the baths ... a great way to get children and young people interested in history. We went when our daughters were 15 years old and I do not easily forget that trip. To access the ruins of Pompeii stayed in the beautiful resort town of Salerno, at the youth hostel, located in the old town. This location gave us other interesting excursions in the area that I will discuss another time.

Pompeya en familia: una lección de historia

En mi opinión, pero también según mi experiencia, la mayoría de los destinos pueden ser apropiados para ir en familia, aunque, si se viaja con niños y niñas demasiado pequeños, se deban hacer algunas concesiones, como alternar visitas con otros momentos de playa, piscina, columpios, parques temáticos... Nosotros hicimos el primer viaje de estas características cuando nuestras hijas tenían tan sólo 5 años, pero como de eso hace mucho tiempo, tanto que sólo tengo fotografías en papel y diapositivas, dejo ese viaje para otra ocasión. Ahora me voy a centrar en uno de esos lugares que todo el mundo conoce. ¿quién no ha visto alguna vez un documental sobre Pompeya, incluso una película. Pero nada de eso tiene que ver con la experiencia de estar allí, recorrer sus calles, asomarse a sus casas y ver todavía las puertas carbonizadas, los catres quemados, las tiendas y tabernas tal como eran hace casi dos mil años... los restos de personas y animales atrapados por la ceniza volcánica del Vesubio mientras dormían... La terrible erupción del Vesubio el 24 de agosto del año 79 preservó la ciudad de la erosión y el saqueo durante casi dos mil años, de manera que es fácil hacerse una idea de cómo era la vida cotidiana en el imperio romano. Pompeya era una ciudad importante en el siglo I, grande, llena de actividad, por eso hoy en día todavía nos muestra infinidad de rincones propios de una gran ciudad de la época: se puede pasear por el teatro, el odeón, la basílica, el ágora, el gimnasio, entrar en casas nobles o recorres las calles de las casas más modestas, con sus "pasos de cebra" elevados, las tabernas o establecimientos de venta de comidas preparadas, en algunas de las cuales todavía se pueden ver los carteles publicitarios, las termas... una manera estupenda de lograr que los niños y jóvenes se interesen por la historia. Nosotros fuimos cuando nuestras hijas tenían 15 años y creo que no olvidarán fácilmente ese viaje. Para acceder a las ruinas de Pompeya nos alojamos en el bonito pueblo turístico de Salerno, en el albergue juvenil que se encuentra en el casco antiguo. Esta ubicación nos facilitó otras interesantes excursiones por la zona que comentaré en otra ocasión.

They reveal impressive ruins

Along with Herculaneum, Pompeii was buried under the ashes of the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, and remained until 1748 when it was rediscovered. One of the biggest drivers of subsequent findings was King Carlos III of Spain. Actually the discovery took place 150 years earlier, in 1550, by the architect Fontana Aragonese seeking an alternative course for the river Sarno. The city is believed to have been founded in the seventh century BC and grew into a center for passage of goods arriving in the Mediterranean way of Rome thanks to Sea port which was built in the bay of Naples. Excavations have uncovered numerous buildings, some almost intact, and wall paintings, some curious as found in the House of the Faun, a brothel in which images showed the preferred postures users who chose to adopt prostitutes. The people died from the fumes toxic gases prior to the violent eruption then bury everything. Proof of this are the molds of people who have encountered the positions they were in at that time, including a pregnant woman. The dig reveals life system and construction of that time: the sources dedicated to deities served as reference to find the houses, a phallic sign directed the concerned to the house of pleasure, major roads, and tiled, bore fouling white marble boards or seashells night to shine the light of the moon or torches. The buildings on Main Street were made with the criterion of a shop or eatery next to a house, they possessed cistern, running water channeled through lead pipes, furnaces, heating. They also had an amphitheater for performing arts, fight camp for gladiators, Temples, a Grand Hotel of 1000 m2, a forum ... Pompeii was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1997 and is one of the favorite places in Italy by tourism.

Impresiona lo que revelan sus ruinas

Junto con la ciudad de Herculano, Pompeya fue enterrada bajo las cenizas de la erupción del Vesubio en el año 79 de nuestra era; así permaneció hasta 1.748 en que fue redescubierta. Uno de los mayores impulsores de los hallazgos posteriores fue el Rey Carlos III de España. En realidad el descubrimiento tuvo lugar 150 años antes, en 1.550, por el arquitecto aragonés Fontana que buscaba un curso alternativo para el río Sarno. La ciudad se cree que fue fundada en el siglo VII A.C. y llegó a convertirse en en centro de paso de las mercancías que llegaban por el Mediterráneo camino de Roma, gracias al puerto marítimo que se construyó en la bahía de Nápoles.
Las excavaciones han descubierto numerosos edificios, algunos casi intactos, y pinturas murales; algunas curiosas como las encontradas en la Casa del Fauno, un lupanar en el que las imágenes mostraban las posturas preferidas que elegían los usuarios para que adoptaran las prostitutas. Los habitantes fallecieron como consecuencia de las emanaciones de gases tóxicos previas a la violenta erupción que enterraría después absolutamente todo. Muestra de ello son los moldes de personas que se han encontrado con las posturas en que estaban en ese momento; incluso una mujer embarazada.
La excavación revela el sistema de vida y construcción de aquella época: las fuentes dedicadas a deidades servían de referencia para encontrar las casas; un signo fálico dirigía a los interesados a la casa de placer; las calles principales, además de embaldosadas, llevaban incrustaciones en las juntas de mármol blanco o de conchas marinas para que de noche brillaran a la luz de la luna o de las antorchas. Las construcciones en la calle principal se hacían con el criterio de una tienda o casa de comidas junto a una vivienda; éstas disponían de algibe, agua corriente canalizada por tuberías de plomo, hornos, calefacción. También disponían de anfiteatro para representaciones artísticas, campo de lucha para los gladiadores, Templos, un Gran Hotel de 1000 m2; un foro...
Pompeya fue declarada Patrimonio de la Humanidad en 1.997 por la UNESCO y es uno de los lugares de Italia preferidos por el turismo.

You can write tuPompeia was once an ancient city of the Roman Empire situated 22 km of modern Naples in Italy, within the current city of Pompeii. The ancient city was destroyed during a major eruption of Vesuvius on 24 August of the year 79 AD The nearby towns of Herculaneum and Stabia were also affected. The volcano eruption has caused an intense shower of ash that buried the city completely, which remained hidden for 1600 years before being rediscovered by chance by a farmer who, while working in the region, located a city wall. Over the next two centuries, the city has been excavated by archaeologists. Homes, public buildings, aqueducts (water conducting system), theaters, spas, shops and other buildings were found. Archaeologists also found objects and fresh that revealed important aspects of the daily life of a typical city of the Roman Empire. But what most impressed the researchers were the petrified bodies in protective position, which were hit by volcanic lavas. Since then, excavations have provided a remarkable archaeological site, which allows a detailed view of life in a city of Roman times Antiga.Actualmente, the ruins of the archaeological site of Pompeii is visited by thousands of tourists from around the world. Walking in Pompeii is a mixture of feelings and emotions, because on one hand thousands died victims of the eruption of the volcano and many were petrified, we think that we have not seen at the museum are no longer able to visit, but otherwise is fascinating to see the organization of this city and the people there 1930 years ago and imagine a day will their day, Pompeii was more organized and complete than many cities are now'd marina, market, shops, theater coliseum, forum, baths, roads , house tours and they were all beautiful, like the ruins of the buildings are very well maintained for years that were buried can be seen the paintings in homes and shops, entries with pictures of houses on the ground, the sources were at the entrance of the houses, all the streets have names, some home are identified who they were, is really fascinating. But little is 1:30 a.m. to see Pompeii, the ruins of the city are huge and each one requires attention and was so much to see, but how we intend to return to this area is certain to return to Pompeii to end our visit and also see Herculaneum you think by what we read was still richer. We recommend this trip to everyone, it is impossible to explain in words just going over there and seeing with their own eyes and feel this mix of emoções.do what you want, what you like most, your personal experience ... Everything!

Passear em Pompeia é um misto de sentimentos e emoções, porque por um lado milhares de pessoas morreram vitimas da erupção do vulcão e muitas ficaram petrificadas, nós isto não vimos pensamos que estejam na parte do museu que já não conseguimos visitar, mas por outro lado é fascinante ver a organização desta cidade e do povo há 1930 anos atrás e imaginar a o dia á dia deles, Pompeia era mais organizada e completa do que muitas cidades são agora, tinha marina, mercado, lojas,teatro coliseu, fórum, termas, estradas, passeios e as casa eram todas elas lindissimas, como as ruinas dos edificios estão bastante bem conservados para os anos que estiveram soterrados consegue-se ver as pinturas nas casas e nas lojas, as entradas das casas com figuras no chão, as fontes que tinham na entrada das casas, todas as ruas tem nomes, algumas casa estão identificadas de quem eram, é realmente fascinante.

Mas 1h30 é pouco para ver Pompeia, as ruinas da cidade são enormes e requer atenção a cada uma e portanto muito ficou para ver, mas como tencionamos voltar a esta zona é certo que voltaremos a Pompeia para terminar a nossa visita e ver também Herculano, que pelo que lemos penso que ainda era mais rica.

Recomendamos esta visita a todas as pessoas, é impossivel explicar mais por palavras só indo lá e vendo com os próprios olhos e sentir este misto de emoções.do o que quiser: o que você mais gostou,a sua experiência pessoal... Tudo!

A trip back

Italy is, as we all know or have heard, a trip to the past. Being in the ruins was seen as see the history books to life, witnessing everything we see in movies and think a little more in those tall tales that we had in class about gladiators and maidens. It's a magical world, different to life in Uruguay, and everything that's epic, everything is special and valuable, the goal is always preservation. No notice, as in other world capitals, a need to build more and more, to have technology in every corner, but rather to preserve what is already done, its main attraction is not the future but the past because is unique in the world, and in many cases the mixture is both. I became aware that every rock means thousands of years of history, and the work of dozens of scientists to find out every detail. Certainly, despite its historical and ancestral essence, is a very systematized for tourism, which is understandable. Everyone should go (and back in my case), know that part of the story alive without it, much of what we've learned in our mind makes sense. The tourist who really appreciates what you see, do not bother, the Italians recognize the distance to it from one who simply seeks the photo to Facebook, and they do notice. I want to believe that I am part of the first category and that is why I found the Italians, warm and helpful people who are no doubt aware of the value that foreigners mean for your business. Not a common walk is a walk to a beautiful world, unique, special, created to revive what we just heard. Without more, a real trip to the past.

Un viaje atras

Italia es, como todos sabemos o hemos escuchado, un viaje al pasado. Estar en las ruinas fue ver como ver los libros de historia tomar vida, presenciar todo lo que vemos en las películas y creer un poco mas en aquellos cuentos exagerados que nos contaban en clase sobre gladiadores y doncellas.
Es un mundo mágico, distinto a la vida en Uruguay, y todo allí es épico, todo es especial y valioso, el objetivo es siempre su preservación. No noto, como en otras capitales del mundo, una necesidad de construir mas y mas, de tener tecnología de punta en cada rincón, sino mas bien de preservar lo que ya esta hecho, su atractivo mayor no es el futuro, sino el pasado porque es único en el mundo, y en muchos casos la mezcla se ambos. Me hice consciente de que cada roca significa miles de años de historia, y la labor de docenas de científicos para averiguar cada detalle.
Sin duda, a pesar de su esencia histórica y ancestral, es un lugar muy sistematizado para el turismo, lo que es comprensible. Todos deberíamos ir (y volver en mi caso), conocer esa parte viva de la historia que sin ella, mucho de lo que hemos aprendido no cobra sentido en nuestra mente. El turista que realmente aprecia lo que ve, no molesta, los italianos reconocen a la distancia a éste de aquel que simplemente busca la foto para Facebook, y lo hacen notar. Quiero creer que formo parte de la primer categoría y por eso mismo he encontrado en los italianos, personas cálidas y serviciales que sin duda son conscientes del valor que los extranjeros significan para su negocio.
No es un paseo común, es un paseo a un mundo hermoso, único, especial, creado para revivir aquello que simplemente hemos escuchado. Sin mas, un verdadero viaje al pasado.

Thanks to modern technology, in pompe...

This city was founded several centuries before the Christian era by the Osci, but spent his best years in Roman times, specifically, during his last decades. Situated in a central location near the mouth of the River Sarno, near places of great movement had as farms and stay where Citizens of Rome and Naples spent their holidays. At the time of the destruction the city had a large market, a tavern, small restaurants, brothels and even an amphitheater. This historic site, the WAS DECLARED World Heritage Site in 1997, and all that is seen there is very Important to define ways and customs of his time. Something interesting that has revealed the recent archaeological work, is that Pompeii was regularly hit by earthquakes of various intensities, and therefore many of its buildings and higher ENHANCED Esteban restored to prevent damage, and even small plaques were found in public buildings , showing who or who had been the benefactors of stories renovations, including, it is said that before the final eruption had been remodeled several electoral areas with an interest in the upcoming elections. Another interesting fact is that the ruins remained hidden for nearly 1500 years, and yet already discovered, it took 150 years for that then the King of Naples Charles VII (Charles III of Spain) sponsored the first archaeological expeditions in the year 1759. Since then, a few years ago, these ruins that had not been properly maintained and protected, nor had sufficient resources Intended for research and conservation. Currently, have been recovered around 2,000 bodies with a technique that allows you to fill the spaces where human bones were found, and this has allowed up to see the expressions on the faces of the victims. The experience provided by these formidable ruins is extraordinary, for that reason the ruins of Pompeii is currently one of the main attractions of the province of Naples, and a must for lovers of history, archeology and culture.

Esta ciudad fue fundada varios siglos antes de la era cristiano por los Oscos, pero vivió sus mejores años en la época romana, específicamente, Durante sus últimas Décadas.
Situada en un punto central muy cerca de la desembocadura del Río Sarno, muy cerca tenía lugares de gran movimiento como granjas y la estancia donde Ciudadanos de Roma y Nápoles pasaban sus vacaciones. En el momento de la Destrucción la ciudad Tenía un gran mercado, una taberna, restaurantes pequeños, casas de citas y hasta un anfiteatro.
Este sitio histórico, la FUE DECLARADO Patrimonio de la Humanidad el año 1997, y todo lo que ahí se observa Es sumamente Importante para definir usos y costumbres de su época.
Algo interesante que ha revelado el trabajo arqueológico reciente, es que era de Pompeya regularmente azotada por terremotos de distintas intensidades, y por ello muchas de sus edificaciones restauradas Esteban REFORZADAS y mayores para evitar daños, e incluso, se encontraron pequeñas placas en los edificios públicos, que mostraban quién o quienes habían sido los benefactores de cuentos remodelaciones, inclusive, se afirma que antes de la erupción final, se habían remodelado varias áreas con un interés electoral por la cercanía de las elecciones.
Otro Hecho interesante, es que las ruinas permanecieron escondidas por cerca de mil quinientos años, aún y ya descubiertas, tuvieron que pasar 150 años más para que entonces el Rey de Nápoles Carlos VII (Carlos III de España) patrocino las primeras expediciones arqueológicas en el año 1759.
Desde esa fecha, hasta hace pocos años, estas ruinas que no habían sido cuidadas y protegidas adecuadamente, ni tampoco se había Destinado suficientes recursos para su investigación y conservación.
Actualmente, se han recuperado al rededor de 2.000 cuerpos con una técnica que permite rellenar los espacios donde fueron encontrado huesos humanos, y esto ha permitido hasta poder ver las expresiones en los rostros de las victimas.
La experiencia que brindan estas formidables ruinas es extraordinaria, por esa razón la ruinas de Pompeya es en la actualidad, uno de los puntos más visitados de la provincia de Nápoles, y visita obligada para los amantes de la historia, la arqueología y la cultura.

How to get from rome to pompeii

Visit Pompeii just takes you one day, but wonderful. The city holds many houses and buildings with nearly two thousand years. It's amazing how you can walk the empredado of its streets, see the traces of carriages and stand before the gates of his former palaces. First, it is very easy to get. Simply take a train from Rome to Naples in Termini, then take the Circumvesuviana, a small train / subway that takes you there. Right to the door. Pompeii Once inside you have to lose. Sometimes it's better to wait a while to feed everyone alone to enjoy the silence of the piedas. Imagine how they lived, how they related. The best was definitely the evening, but of course, then played with a flashlight walking to avoid tripping. I recommend not to miss the amphitheater, mosaics, and the bar / restaurant, you will need to regain strength, but you can take the food you want.

Cómo llegar desde roma a pompeya

Visitar Pompeya apenas te lleva un día, pero es maravilloso. La ciudad mantiene muchas casas y edificios con casi dos mil años de vida. Es impresionante cómo puedes recorrer el empredado de sus calles, ver las huellas de los carruajes y pararte ante las puertas de sus antiguos palacios. Lo primero, es muy fácil llegar. Basta con coger un tren desde Roma a Nápoles en Términi, para después tomar el Circumvesuviano, un trenecito/metro que te lleva hasta allí. Justo hasta la puerta.
Una vez dentro de Pompeya te tienes que perder. A veces es mejor esperar un rato a que avance todo el mundo para disfrutar a solas del silencio de las piedas. Imaginarte cómo vivian, cómo se relacionaban. Lo mejor fue sin duda el atardecer, aunque claro, luego tocaba andar con una linterna para no tropezar. Recomiendo no perderse el anfiteatro, los mosaicos, ni el bar/restaurante, que te hará falta para reponer fuerzas, aunque te puedes llevar la comida que quieras.

Fantastic city

Pompeii, near the Italian city of Naples, was completely buried for over fifteen hundred years ago by mud and ash resulting from the eruption of Vesuvius and larvae, located between these two cities, and that is dormant today. After many years, Pompeii was rediscovered under a lot of mud, exposing its beautiful ruins, which contributed to the study of the habits of ancient civilizations. Narrow streets of stone, remains of houses and amphitheatres and a house that has probably served the local prostitution, with its stone bed and drawings at the entrance, exposing the relationships available to patrons, like a "menu" of what could be done in that house. It really is a fantastic look that will never be forgotten by all who pass by Pompeii

Cidade fantástica

Pompéia, cidade italiana próxima de Nápoles, foi totalmente soterrada há mais de mil e quinhentos anos atrás, pela lama e cinza resultantes da erupção e larvas do vulcão Vesúvio, localizado entre estas duas cidades, e que hoje se encontra adormecido. Depois de muitos anos, Pompéia foi redescoberta abaixo de muita lama, expondo suas belíssimas ruínas, o que contribuiu para o estudo dos hábitos de civilizações antigas. Estreitas ruas de pedras, restos de residências, além de anfiteatros e uma casa que provavelmente tenha servido de local de prostituição, com sua cama de pedra e desenhos na entrada, expondo os relacionamentos disponíveis aos frequentadores, como se fosse um "cardápio" do que se poderia fazer naquela casa.

Qued love

I worked day and night with my team and after a year of effort, we succeeded. An app that is a window to the past with 3D illustrations and pictures of high quality. In addition to video and audio description that transport you. On my next visit (yes, I'm a little recidivist hehe) I'll take with me!

A trip to the past

We travel to Pompeii on the Circumvesuviana, the train that runs along the bay from Naples to Sorrento. In that hot Sunday in June was Neapolitans crowded noisy, happy to go to the beach on the holiday. We entered the archaeological site of Pompeii through the Marine Gate, which once connected the city to the port. From there you can reach the forum, the center of all Roman city with the market, the basilica and the temple of Jupiter. In this area there are many groups of tourists, who faithfully follow their guide with the flag. Instead the wonder of Pompeii is lost in its streets that still have the original pavement, with the traces of the ruts of cars and raised crosswalks, or visit the many buildings, some with painted or electoral propaganda advergames on their facades. There are all kinds, loved the shops, especially the bars or thermopolium where one can lean on the bar as in our bars, but there are dry cleaners, ovens and many brothels. Public buildings are extraordinary, in the main baths are no dependencies hot baths, warm and cold, demonstrating the well-being of the body cult who had the ancient Romans. Of the two theaters, the small retains the original marble tier. By way of ABUNDANZA you reach the amphitheater at the edge of town, and if you sit in the stands and close your eyes, you can almost feel the audience roaring with bloody gladiatorial combat. Roman villas were very luxurious, with its gardens, colonnaded courtyards and fountains, numerous frescoed rooms where the predominant red and beautiful mosaics. Of these the most impressed me was the villa of the Mysteries, located outside the city walls. A huge mansion that in its heyday had a sea view, has many rooms, of which the triclinium is decorated with magnificent frescoes that seem to represent the initiation rites of a woman. In one of the corridors is a glass case with the body of a girl lying face down, hands covering his face. It is one of the most famous casts of the inhabitants of Pompeii, who died due to the terrible eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD that destroyed the entire city. The body was decomposed with the passage of time, but left its mold in the layer of fine ash consolidated, many archaeologists centuries later filled with plaster, leaving a perfect image of the girl at the time of his death.

Un viaje al pasado

Viajamos a Pompeya en el Circumvesuviano, el tren que recorre toda la bahía desde Nápoles a Sorrento. En ese domingo caluroso del mes de junio iba abarrotado de ruidosos napolitanos, alegres por ir a la playa en el día festivo.
Entramos en el recinto arqueológico de Pompeya por la puerta Marina, que antaño comunicaba la ciudad con el puerto. De ahí se llega rápidamente al foro, el centro de toda ciudad romana con el mercado, la basílica y el templo de Júpiter. En esa zona hay muchos grupos de turistas, que siguen fielmente a su guía con la banderita.
En cambio lo maravilloso de Pompeya es perderse por sus calles que aún conservan el pavimento original, con las huellas de las rodadas de los carros y los pasos de cebra en relieve; o bien visitar los numerosos edificios, algunos incluso con pintadas de propaganda electoral o anuncios de juegos en sus fachadas. Los hay de todo tipo, me encantaron los comercios, sobre todo los bares o thermopolium donde uno puede apoyarse en la barra como en nuestros bares; pero también hay tintorerías, hornos de pan y numerosos burdeles. Los edificios públicos son extraordinarios, en las termas principales hay dependencias de baños calientes, templados y fríos, lo que demuestra el culto al bienestar del cuerpo que tenían los antiguos romanos. De los dos teatros, el pequeño conserva la grada de mármol original. Por la vía de la Abundanza se llega al anfiteatro en el extremo de la ciudad, y si uno se sienta en la grada y cierra los ojos, casi puede sentir rugir al público ante un combate sangriento de gladiadores.
Las villas romanas eran de gran lujo, con sus jardines, patios con columnas y fuentes, numerosas habitaciones decoradas con frescos donde predomina el color rojo y mosaicos bellísimos. De todas ellas la que más me impresionó fue la villa de los Misterios, situada fuera de las murallas de la ciudad. Una enorme mansión que en su época de esplendor tenía vistas al mar; posee numerosas habitaciones, de las cuales el triclinium está decorado con frescos magníficos que parecen representar los ritos de iniciación de una mujer . En uno de los pasillos se encuentra una urna de cristal con el cuerpo de una joven tumbada bocabajo, con las manos cubriéndose el rostro. Es uno de los más famosos moldes de los habitantes de Pompeya, que murieron debido a la terrible erupción del Vesubio en el 79 AD que destruyó totalmente la ciudad. El cuerpo se descompuso con el paso del tiempo, pero quedó su molde en la capa de finas cenizas consolidadas; muchos siglos después los arqueólogos lo rellenaron con escayola, dejando una imagen perfecta de esa muchacha en el momento de su muerte.

Pompeii

In the shadow of Vesuvius Pompeii still there. A city stopped in time in the year 79 AD, must and will not leave you like. Surprise all state buildings and especially emptying people trapped and you can contemplate, seeing the fear in their faces ... Quite impressive. Also Herculaneum, which suffered the same fate worth a visit to see even more details of their daily lives, all being smaller and is strongly recommended and is close

Pompeya

En la sombra del Vesubio sigue ahi Pompeya. Una ciudad parada en el tiempo en el año 79 dC, visita obligada y que no te dejará igual. Sorprende el estado de todos los edificios y sobretodo el vaciado de personas que quedaron atrapadas y que puedes contemplar, viendo el miedo en sus rostros... Algo impresionante. También Herculano, que corrió la misma suerte vale la pena visitarlo para ver aun más detalles de su día a día, todo y ser más pequeño es totalmente recomendado y es cercano

Pompei

Lupa in latino significa prostituta, e le lupanare erano le case di piacere dove andavano le persone comuni. I signori le ricevevano nelle loro ville o si divertivano con le loro serve. Sui muri ci sono disegni erotici che erano di ispirazione, e lamentele da parte dei clienti che avevo contratto malattie veneree, per colpa delle ragazze. Esse non potevano indossare le vesti lunghe, che erano esclusivamente per le matriarche, le signore rispettabili di Pompei- teatro grande e teatro piccolo

El 24 agosto del 79 d.C., un temblor interrumpió la rutina de Pompeya. El temblor fue seguido de una erupción que propulsó roca ígnea volcánica a más de 20.000 metros de altura. El viento transportó la ceniza y las rocas que acabaron descargando sobre Pompeya. En horas, la quedó cubierta por tres metros de rocas y cenizas volcánicas.
Gracias a que la ciudad quedó totalmente, hemos podido aprender como era la vida en la época de esplendor del Imperio romano.
