In the archaeological site, the ancient Roman city, buried by the sudden eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, has been brought to the light. The rain of ash and lava and the resulting thick layer of dust have crystallized, preserving Pompeii for centuries.Brought to the surface, Pompeii is the most visited archaeological site in the world.Amalfi is an internationally renowned tourist destination and famous for its incomparable beauty and mild climate, the town on the southern coast of the Sorrento Peninsula, known as the Amalfi Coast, is closed by the foothills of the mountains Lattari.
