In the middle of the first Century A.D. the Roman Empire covered most of the known world. Rome stood magnificent and unassailable. Not far to the south, in the shadow of Vesuvius, stood the port-city of Pompeii, the playground of nobles. Pompeii gloried in its commerce and culture, yet the forces of decadence and corruption that issued from Rome were taking hold. But a new spirit of faith was whispering through the land, a whisper that would soon turn into a shout and forever determine the faith of the Empire, and Pompeii.

 

Welcome to Pompeii,
the city which has everything your heart may desire

 
We have the Temple of Isis for the religious types among you. However, a word of warning - please make sure you have enough money with you before entering the Temple, otherwise we cannot guarantee that your prayers shall be answered.

If it is a more earthly variety of pleasures you're after, then the Tavern is the place for you. There you can sample the finest wines Pompeii has to offer, as well as certain -- other -- things. If it's a good game of dice you're after, there's certain to be people of the same mind in the Tavern at all times of the day, or night. Just make sure you can afford all the entertainment this fine establishment has to offer.

If you would like to see something a bit more exciting, then the Arena is the place to go to. Pompeii has the finest, bravest and toughest gladiators in all of the Empire. Enjoy the Games, your satisfaction with the action is guaranteed.

Perhaps you're interested in getting to know some of the locals? No problem. Pompeians are a friendly sort and they welcome visitors with smiles and open arms. Well, most of the time, anyway. So, pop in and visit the various noble houses and mingle.

For those among you in want of a little culture, we recommend a tour at Philos' Studio. Philos the Greek is one of the finest artists Pompeii has to offer.

And, after a long day, or night, of fun may we suggest a visit to the Baths. There's nothing more relaxing than a soak in a hot pool and a nice massage. Try it, you won't be sorry.

If, despite of our best efforts, you have complaints, or, gods forbid, you have got yourself into trouble with the law, please go to the Forum and state your business before the Magistrate. Unless it is the re-election time, your business shall be handled swiftly and fairly.

If you wish to leave our fair city, although why anyone would is beyond us, then you better head for the Marina where you shall find a selection of fine ships, ready to take you wherever your heart may desire.

Bon Voyage and Welcome Back Soon!

The Last Days Of Pompeii was originally written by Edward George Bulwer-Lytton. The mini-series my site is dedicated to was written by Carmen Culver and directed by Peter Hunt. No infringement is intended. TLDoP is simply one of my favourite television series ever and this is my small tribute to it and to all the wonderful talent that made it happen in the first place.
