    Herculaneum

    The city of Pompeii was buried nearly instantly in 20 feet of ash in 79 A.D. when Mt. Vesuvius erupted. The ash was hot and breathing it would feel like swallowing tiny shards of broken glass. "Painful" is putting it mildly.

    The Sunken City of Baia, Italy. It was a Roman seaside resort on the Bay of Naples.Baiae was even more popular than Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Capri. Baiae was sacked by Muslim raiders in the 8th century AD and was deserted because of malaria by 1500. Because of coastal subsidence most of Baiae is now under water in the Bay of Naples, largely due to local volcanic activity.
