Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision)

 

Using Google Maps, take a virtual tour of Pompeii.

When arriving at today’s link use your mouse to move around the location to explore the ruins. When you have finished with your interactive exploration, look in the lower right-hand corner and select the stacked arrow icon to reveal additional views and more images taken by others. Here you will find images of:

  • Pompeii Archaeological Park
  • Pompeii – Porta Marina
  • Forum at Pompeii
  • House of Ancient Hunting
  • Teatro Grande
  • Porta Vescuvio
  • Temple of Isis
  • Scavi di Pompeii
  • Casa del Fuano
  • And more.

Also check out Pompeii in Pictures. Created by Pompeii enthusiasts, Jackie and Bob Dunn, see a collection of images of the excavations of Pompeii along with informative text.

When arriving at the link, feel free to read through the notes. Below all of this information is an interactive map that can be used to navigate through the tour. Be prepared to make a lot of choices to begin viewing images. Choose a region on the map, then a region map will open. Select a location, then quite often another location map will load. Make another selection to view the images. It seemed easier to navigate using the upper dropdown menu. Select a region or topic of interest, then scroll down under the map to make another selection. Use your back button to return to previous pages.

While navigation may be a little labor intensive, it is worth the effort to see this historical location.

There are also additional tours available under the “Surrounding” dropdown menu for other ancient locations in Italy.
