Pompeii was destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79.  Excavations since the 18th century have revealed the city as it was in its heyday, allowing the modern visitor a wonderful opportunity to look at ancient Helllenistic and Roman culture in situ.

The public and private buildings, with their statues, wall-paintings and mosaics, provide material information on ancient theatre, town planning, interior decoration, local politics, gender and slavery.

Booking information: please call 0844 415 4151, Monday to Friday 9am - 5.30 pm. Lines open 13 September.
