The visit of Pompeii remains is a unique experience in the world: you will finally see face to face the antiquities you have read on so many books about the Roman Empire.
The event that immortalized Pompeii was the famous eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD that, in addition to Pompeii, destroyed the cities of Herculaneum and Stabiae. The first official excavation campaign of Pompeii was opened on March 23, 1748 by the abbot Martorelli. Near the intersection of the streets of Stabia and Nola were found objects, coins, statues, frescoes and the first body. The discovery of an entire ancient city, virtually intact and complete in all its components, was an incredible event worldwide. Travellers, who managed to get permission to visit it, left traces of their identity and their motivations. These included Winckelmann, Hamilton, Goethe and Mozart when he was fourteen.
After the visit of Pompeii, one can transfer to the terrace of the Virgin Mary of Positano where You can take some photos of the most precious jewel and most picturesque town of the Amalfi Coast. You'll have the chance to admire the memorable view of Positano with its almost vertical cascade of pastel houses leading down to the beach. The history of Positano is long, rich, and even a little strange. Like most Italian towns, Positano has its miraculous image: a Byzantine Madonna. The legend says that a long time ago Saracen pirates sacked the city, and, among other things, they took away the picture of the Virgin Mary. But, when on the high sea, a miraculous vision terrified them so much, they decided to bring back the image to Positano. An event that is remembered every year on August 15.
