Italy’s appeal with its blue seas, stunning landscapes and Mediterranean lifestyle goes back a lot further than the first all-inclusive package holiday. Even in AD 79, the Romans recognised its allure, travelling to their holiday destinations of choice, Pompeii and Herculaneum. Like the modern tourist, the Romans created a resort to satisfy all their holiday pleasures and Pompeii was no different.
The town set the standard for the modern seaside resort equipped with bars, restaurants, baths and even theatres and brothels to entertain the passing traveller. Today, set against the awe-inspiring silhouette of Vesuvius and the Mediterranean coastline, lays what looks like a 3D blueprint map of modern-day Naples. The haunting remains of an ancient Roman town, preserved right down to the streets, bedrooms, and bakers’ ovens, as if the residents have only just left.
