Travelers will soon be able to take a high-speed train from Rome to Pompeii, the ancient city famously preserved in ash after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 C.E.
Gennaro Sangiuliano, Italy’s culture minister, announced the new route earlier this month, reports Euronews’ Rebecca Ann Hughes. The $38 million (€35 million) project will add a new stop near the Pompeii archaeological site along an existing route between the country’s capital city, Naples, and Salerno, as well as a new train station and transit hub.
