Great Events

 

Special opening night visits and theatrical shows in the moonlight between real and virtual.

The ancient marina and the arches on the beach of Herculaneum
In 79 AD, a glowing cloud of gas and ash with a temperature of 400° rolled down the slopes of Mount Vesuvius to attack Herculaneum. The few victims found within the city, including a newborn baby in its cradle, indicate that the majority of the inhabitants had already left their homes, resorting to the sea as an escape route. When the surge reached the beach area, three hundred evacuees died instantly of thermal shock, who had taken refuge in the shelters for boat (arches), which opened on it. A boat, m 9 in length, was found capsized next to the victims.

VESUVIUS
A nighttime walk to the Great Cone of Vesuvius on nights of full moon. The experience of nature and a theatrical performance to learn about captivating and exciting places and stories of the past. In the glimmering moonlight, the volcano is transformed for today’s travelers.
The landscape will enable all those taking past to immerse themselves in the silence as they listen to the tales of ancient and modern times whispered by the crater.
Accompanied by volcanologist guides, we will live through a unique experience. Through the pages of travelers on the Grand Tour who were fascinated by this legendary volcano, tales, stories, and moving reflections on the past and present will be revealed.

HERCULANEUM
A nighttime walk between real and virtual, historical tales and the enchantment of light, theater and music amid stories of ancient buried Herculaneum. 3D projections of the eruption of Vesuvius, tours accompanied by an archaeologist, and theatrical performances for an unprecedented nighttime viewing of the excavations of Herculaneum.
The tour starts from the conference hall, where you can see the 3D projections of the eruption of the volcano. From here, an archaeologist guides you in a picturesque descent into the “fornici” (arched rooms) for an exciting theatrical performance, in which a young woman who has lost her sight recounts her carefree everyday life and the unexpected catastrophe.
The guided tour continues along the terrace of Marcus Nonius Balbus, and from here we enter the urban fabric of the ancient city, walking through its streets and amid its ancient dwellings.
