The town of Pompeii is located on a volcanic terrace to the South from the majestic Mount Vesuvius. Pompeii was founded long before Romans came here, but it’s fame really started off with the Roman expansion in the second century BC. After Sulla took Pompeii during the Social War, this city became the main Roman port for the inland cities of Campania such as Nocera, Acerra and Nola. Pompeii had gained their wealth by hosting gladiatorial games in a big amphitheater and by trading goods as well as producing some of the valuable goods themselves, like the famous garum fish sauce.
According to a fascinating account of Plinius the Elder, who died himself during the second day of eruption, the towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum were devastated by a huge volcanic eruption in 79 AD. The whole coastline was completely buried under a thick layer of ash and lapilli (burning pieces of pumice stone).
