Pompeii
A holiday in Italy - with all the romance and sightseeing that that brings.

A much awaited visit to Pompeii. Famous for stories volcanic eruption, and what evidence of this event was uncovered many years later.

Pompeii was an ancient Roman town-city near modern Naples, in the Campania region of Italy. Pompeii, along with neighbouring Herculaneum and other parts of the surrounding area, was mostly destroyed and buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of volcanic ash.

And now it has been uncovered, we have the opportunity to relive the days of the Roman empire, and tread those streets again.

My photo shows just one of those streets - with the volcano in the background.
