Wealthy Romans who were required to act conservative and austere in Rome would vacation on the Vesuvian coast, an ancient version of Las Vegas or Miami.

The Villa Oplontis in the town of Torre Annunziata is a stunning view into the world of Pompeii’s wealthy citizens at the time of the city’s destruction. Rumored to have once been occupied by Nero’s wife Poppea, the Villa is one of the most active sites for archeologists in Italy.

This conversation will take you inside, to see the zebra painted walls that designated the routes the servants could walk, the infinity pool once lined with fish tanks where revelers could choose their dinner, and the neighboring warehouse where osteo-archaeologists are studying the remains of the people who died there while waiting to be rescued by boat.

Led by Danielle Oteri, an expert on art, food and history of Southern Italy, this interactive seminar will educate listeners to this unusual and intriguing topic. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with a vivid picture of life in Pompeii during the 1st century C.E.

This conversation is suitable for all ages.

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.

A fascinating lecture with wonderful updated material and information which really shed light on the topic, accurate dating and what life was really like. I particularly liked Danielle's personal tips on taking the trains, talking to locals, etc. Danielle did a great job of making the topic engaging.
