POMPEII IN THE SHADOW OF VESUVIUS

posted in: Italy | 0

The remains of Pompeii were dug up in the 16th century after it remained buried for 1500 years since the devastating eruption in 79 AD. Vesuvius still looms high over the town which is swamped with tourists like us who came on a day tour from the cruise ship that docked in the nearby port of Naples. Much of the well-preserved city can be explored and going around it gives you a glimpse of everyday life in ancient Roman times from the cobblestone roads to the architectural design of houses and the food that the people ate. I teaches you history live so the trip was well worth it.
