This is what you might see during a one-day (7-hour) tour of Pompeii's Roman ruins in Italy. Note - The city is huge. You won't see everything in a day and some areas are usually closed for conservation.

About this Pompeii mini-documentary:
Pompeii was an ancient Roman city near Naples, in Italy. It was mostly destroyed and buried under 4 to 6 meters of volcanic ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.
Today it’s some distance inland, but in ancient times was nearer to the coast. Pompeii is about 10 km away from Mount Vesuvius and covered a total of about 66 hectares.
About two thirds of the city has been uncovered.

The film features the ancient theatres and amphitheatre, streets and homes, bars and baths of ancient Pompeii.

The film ends at the Garden of the Fugitives, where there are casts of victims who died while attempting to flee and were then buried by volcanic ash and pumice.
