Summer vacationers traverse the globe in search of new sights and experiences, but we’ve got them all right here! It’s stay-cation time – join us for a summer series of virtual art lectures and guided tours led by professional art historians and archeologists.
This online tour is an appetizer of Pompeii: escape into Roman times!
Archaeologist and an authorized guide of the Campania Region Roberto will tell you the history of the city, from the beginning to the eruption, and then to the discovery.
You’ll get an introduction to the daily life of 2000 years ago, discovering the private and public buildings that characterize the ancient city.
During our virtual trip, we will visit some of the main attractions as the Amphitheater (Roman gladiator stadium), the Thermopolium (Roman snack bar) and the Forum (main square).
You’ll also discover the techniques that archaeologists use to create the plaster casts of the victims of the eruption of the Vesuvius.
Looking at maps videos and photos, taste the Roman times that’ll give you an idea for a future offline visit.
Please note: this interactive and hands-on event is hosted online, which means you get to enjoy it from the comfort of your living room, patio or kitchen table! An access link will be provided prior to the start of the event.
