MEDITERRANEAN CIVILIZATIONS

From Fri, November 3 to Sun, November 5

Cost: 330€

Naples has been a hot vacation spot for not only Italians but Europeans and Americans alike since the 1700s. It has an amazing mixture of ancient and modern sights, which continues to attract visitors to this day. It is now one of the most populated cities in Italy and has become a much safer and enjoyable place to visit once again.

Capri is the pearl of the Bay of Naples, often called the Pearl of Italy. Capri's natural beauty originally brought ancient Roman Emperor Tiberius to build the famous Villa Jovis on the Island. The cities of Capri and Anacapri have an aristocratic feel to them due to the development in the 19th and 20th centuries. For about the past two centuries Capri has served as a home for expatriates, artists, and eccentrics as well as a vacation destination for many.

For the last two hundred years Pompeii has been painstakingly brought back to life after its burial in the Vesuvius eruption of 79 a.d. The excavations began in 1748 and continue to this day. It is still unkown when the ancient city of Pompeii was established, possibly the 8th or 6th century b.c. It was a flourishing commercial center for most of its lifetime. In 63 a.d, it suffered a devastating earthquake, yet it continued to flourish and even increase its wealth and influence. The final nail in the coffin though, was the eruption of Vesuvius on 24 August, 79 a.d. when the city was covered with pumice stone and ash.
