Pompeii - They thought it was only a mountain! (April 11th at 10:00am)
Buried under a thick layer of ashes during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD, Pompeii was rediscovered by chance more than 250 years ago, giving as a precious insight into the everyday lives of ancient Romans. We will see the Forum, streets, houses, shops and a bakery with the oven still intact.
FUN FACT#1: Carbonized bread was found inside an oven in a bakery perfectly preserved, as well as grape seeds. Wine using the same variety of grapes was made a few years ago.
FUN FACT#2: The Pompeians thought that the Vesuvius was just a mountain as it had not erupted for centuries and was covered with vegetation up to the top as shown in a fresco found in Pompeian house.
