Marvel at the city of the super rich in ancient Roman submerged beneath the sea, still exquisitely preserved after over 2000 years

It is known that the Roman buildings and structures here have maintained its opulent and magnificent splendor for over 2,000 years, despite being submerged under the water.

Scientists have just uncovered a secret metropolis submerged under the water that is home to several magnificent and opulent structures.

More precisely, in ancient Rome, this served as a residence for the affluent elite.

The city of Beiae, which served as a social hub for affluent Roman families, abruptly submerged under the waves of the Bay of Naples, Italy, around 1,700 years ago.

According to historians, volcanic activity caused the shoreline to abruptly withdraw 400 meters below the surface, raising water levels and burying the whole city. As a result, the majority of the city fell down beneath the sea.

Surveys have shown that certain ancient buildings, which have been immersed in seawater for about 2,000 years, are still mostly intact.

When Naples-based photographer Antonio Busiello photographed the remains, he discovered that the walls, sculptures, mosaics, and pathways had all held strong throughout time.

The 45-year-old guy revealed: “The architecture and villas continue to withstand the effects of aging, and the mosaics remain exquisite.” Luxuriance and value are still evident in this undersea complex “sect in this area”.

He continued: “Diving to see these ancient Roman ruins underwater is something very difficult to describe and it is truly a wonderful experience.”

It is known that at Baiae’s height, emperor Nero, general Julius Caesar, military commanders Pompey and Marius, and emperor Hadrianus all called the city home.

Among the attractions of today, the Pisoni and Protiro villas are the most impressive due to their intricate mosaics.
Underwater diving in Rome earlier this year prompted Dr. Barbara Davidde and historians and scientists worldwide to draw certain conclusions. The results were documented in a booklet titled Secret Sunken in Rome.

The archives showcase the immensity of the villa, together with its valuable sculptures, amazing mosaics, thermal bath, cobblestone streets, and even a “nymphaeum” or cave of pleasure located around 241 miles south of Rome.

Scientists are still working to unravel the mystery of this old Roman manuscript at the moment.
