An Australian tourist was arrested after he was caught riding his moped through the ancient ruins of Pompeii, Italy.

The 'barbarian', reported to be 33-years-old, was apprehended by security after travelling for about a mile around the world-famous archaeological park.

The tourist claimed he didn't know that he wasn't allowed to drive through the 2,000-year-old site which was famously destroyed by a volcanic eruption in 79 AD. 

The UNESCO world heritage site does not allow tourist vehicles, and fortunately in this case the park confirmed no parts of the ancient city were accessed or damaged.

The man has since been charged with 'unauthorised access'.
