Google Earth Plug-in: Pompeii Ruins Overlay

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files

This is a map of how the city of Pompeii, Italy looked before the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius anhillated it.

Pompeii is a ruined Roman city near modern Naples in the Italian region of Campania. It was destroyed during a catastrophic eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. The volcano buried the city under many feet of ash and it was lost for 1,600 years before its accidental rediscovery. Since then, its excavation has provided an extraordinarily detailed insight into the life of a city at the height of the Roman Empire. Today, it is one of Italy's leading tourist attractions and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
