A playground for the ancient rich & famous

A warming sun and gentle sea breezes have been attracting visitors to this fair spot for two millennia. Its reputation as a playground of the ancient rich and famous resulted in the building of lavish villas and palaces, an emperor relocated to the Isle of Capri nearby, and over the centuries it has been a haven for artists and artisans, writers and poets, politicians and philosophers, and all manner of aristocrats. (You will be a welcome addition.) 

The massive eruption of nearby Vesuvius in AD 79 caused considerable damage, but the resulting volcanic ash is responsible for Sorrento’s modern day fertility, thriving olive orchards, and excellent wine.

Explorations Of Pompeii

Pompeii was a major port and center of wealth and politics until Mt. Vesuvius erupted in AD 79. This ancient site is perhaps the most famous archaic excavation in the world.

Buried for 1,700 years, the town has been resurrected and a clear picture of primeval daily life emerges from the cinders.
