On this tour of Pompeii, a city preserved by a volcano in 79 AD, we'll walk the ancient streets remarkably like our own. We'll hear about that incredible August day, 1900 years ago, when ash rained down from Mount Vesuvius, turning the sky black and encasing Pompeii in a time capsule; stop at ancient cafeterias and bars; cross in Roman crosswalks; marvel at the mosaics, the frescoes, the still-brilliant colors; see the pipes that brought running water to homes and fountains; envy how the very rich lived; visit the baths and theatres, gardens and stores; view plaster casts of the citizens of Pompeii as they died; see a bakery, a laundry, a brothel, and ancient graffiti still clear on city walls; and stand where the Gladiators trained and where they fought in the first Roman Amphitheatre ever.
