The Ruins of Pompeii Italy

Travel adventure - The ruins of Pompeii are priceless. Much of the site's value lies in the fact that it wasn't simply blown away by Vesuvius in AD 79

rather it was buried under a layer of lapilli (burning fragments of pumice stone). The result is a remarkably well-preserved slice of ancient life

where visitors can walk down Roman streets & snoop around millennia-old abodes & businesses (including a brothel).
