Postcards from Pompeii
I wasn't sure what to expect of this Volcano-torn ancient city. What I found was a site of interesting ruins, abundant with history and meaning behind them. It was very enlightening learning about them from our guide Micele and it was awing to see how long these structures had been standing despite what they had endured. Definitely worth visiting - set in quite a cute little town with pleasant views and the great Mount Vesuvius as a majestic backdrop. If you admire history or simply appreciate the mysteriousness of ancient ruins you will find interest in this World Heritage place.
A few of my favourite snapshots from the day:
|Outside the city walls.|
|The "main" streets of Pompeii.|
|Stormy clouds on one side, blue skies on the other.|
|Their version of a shopping mall.|
|Beautiful artwork and it's colouring that has endured through thousands of years.|
|An ancient 'mansion' with a modern courtyard.|
