F.A.Q.


  • How was Pompeii accidentally discovered?

Pompeii was first rediscovered in 1599 during the construction of an underground channel to divert the river Sarno away from the city of Naples. While digging the channel, workers unearthed some ancient frescoes and inscriptions, which led to the realization that they had stumbled upon an ancient site. However, this discovery was not extensively investigated or recognized at the time.

The second, more significant rediscovery of Pompeii occurred in 1748 when a group of explorers led by Spanish military engineer Rocque Joaquin de Alcubierre was digging a well. They accidentally stumbled upon the ancient city buried beneath layers of volcanic ash and pumice from the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. This rediscovery sparked widespread interest in the archaeological excavation of Pompeii and led to the systematic exploration and preservation of the site.


  • What is the prettiest town in the Amalfi Coast?


Determining the "prettiest" town on the Amalfi Coast is subjective and can vary depending on individual preferences. However, many people consider Positano to be one of the most picturesque towns on the Amalfi Coast due to its stunning scenery, colorful buildings cascading down the cliffside, charming streets, and beautiful beaches.

Other contenders for the title of the prettiest town on the Amalfi Coast include Amalfi, with its historic cathedral and dramatic coastline views, and Ravello, known for its elegant gardens, stunning villas, and panoramic vistas. Ultimately, the prettiest town on the Amalfi Coast is a matter of personal opinion, and each town has its own unique charm and beauty to offer visitors.
