"Art directors will find these books invaluable, and travelers will see what [these regions] were really like."
Connie Martinson Talks Books


This book explores Pompeii with an eye toward contrasting what it is today and how it appeared before this fabled city was buried beneath a rain of ash and cinders during the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. This tour includes the Porta Marina, one of the best preserved gates to the city, as well as the Forum, Temple of Apollo, and several public walkways and private villas. Important monuments and districts are presented with overlays that clearly depict how these notable ancient sites look today and how they likely appeared when they were first built, making these titles excellent resources for travelers, students, and anyone interested in the fascinating history of Pompeii.

Published by Vision s.r.l., Rome, and distributed in North America by the J. Paul Getty Museum.
