According to ancient tradition, Pompeii was founded by the Osci in the 8th centuri BC. The first fortuitous contact with the remains of Pompeii came between 1954 and 1600 when the architect Domenico Fontana came pon some ancient buildings, their walls covered in inscriptions and paintings. The archaeological site rest upon an ancient lava flow that slopes sharply from north to south. The old inhabited area is enclosed by a circle of walls, through which there are six gates, four of these are located at the end of the city’s two main arteries, “ Via Della Marina” continuing along to “Via Dell’Abbondanza”. Archaeologist have divided Pompeii into “nine regions”, delineated by the major roadways; each region is subdivided into “Insulae”, similar to today’s city blocks, which sometimes correspond to a single home or a public building, while in many cases they have a multiple entrances, each of which is numbered. Therefore, every Pompeii building is marked by two or three numbers: that Region, That of the Insula, and, if there is one, that of the entranceway. The first is indicated in Roman numerals, while the other two are in Arabic Numerals. Finishing approx. at 01.00 pm Optional tour for Mount Vesuvius
