A splendid and famous holiday resort, Sorrento stands on a terrace rising steeply above the sea. Because of its enchanting position and mild climate, sheltered by the surrounding hills, Sorrento has been a favorite resort since Romans times, and it became an elite tourist resort from the eighteenth century, its hotels welcoming such luminaries as Ibsen, Wagner and Nietzche.
This ancient city at the foot of Vesuvius was quite prosperous in Roman times. It was destroyed in 79 A.D., following the famous volcanic eruption which covered it with a layer of pumice and ash. The first archaeological explorations took place towards the mid-18th century, and excavations soon began in earnest, but not until 1860 were they conducted in an orderly, systematic fashion. It is thought that, to date, about three-fifths of the ancient town has been excavated. Pompei is one of the most important archaeological sites in the world, because it provides a complete picture of the topography and life of a Roman town.
