    The ancient ruins of Pompeii in Italy where Mt. Vesuvius erupted and destroyed the city back in 79 A.D. I first became fascinated by this place after watching Pink Floyd's "live at Pompeii" video performance. I am amazed by the fact that to this day you can see some molds of it's citizens at their time of death. #Travel #Rome #Italy #Pompeii

    Pompeii, Italy. The excavated ruins are unbelievable. The stone body "casts" of those who died will break your heart and fascinate you all at the same time. It's a great place to visit.

    POMPEII, ITALY ~ The city of Pompeii is a partially buried Roman town-city near modern Naples in the Italian region of Campania, in the territory of the comune of Pompei. Along with Herculaneum, Pompeii was destroyed and completely buried during a long catastrophic eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius spanning two days in the year AD 79. The eruption buried Pompeii under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of ash and pumice, and it was lost for nearly 1700 years before its accidental rediscovery in 1749...

Pompeii...amazing to have walked these streets!

Pompeii...yes, that is a real person encased in ash. When they tried to *open* one, they found that they are filled with *liquid*...

Pompei...one of the most amazing places I have ever been in my life. A must see for everyone in the world. (Those big blocks in the road were *speed bumps* for chariots! No kidding!!)

Pompei--why can't I find my Italy pics!? They're not on my comp, or my flashdrive, or and CD I have, but I know they're somewhere...

Pompeii Not a 'door,' but door way, or square arch in a city that was destroyed. IF there was a door, it was burned with the volcano destruction.

Pompeii ancient city in Italy covered in ash so quickly it preserved everything. The ash hardened around the corpses of the residents, leaving a tragic and unique snapshots of the destruction. One less noted oddity of these ruins are the stray dogs that live here. Silent & Soulful they watch the tourists from a distance often perched in the shadows, like guardians & ghosts.
