From Rome, I took a day trip down to the ruins of Pompeii. It was about an hour and a half train ride from Rome. We had to stop in Naples and change trains.
The city of Pompeii was completely destroyed and buried by the eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius. Since then, the city has been completely excavated and is pretty much perfectly preserved as it was almost 2,000 years ago. Even some of the people are in the same positions they were when the volcano erupted and covered them. It’s really crazy!!
Here are a few more pictures of the city.
After wandering through Pompeii for a few hours, me and a friend of mine caught the train back to Naples. The only thing we wanted out of Naples was a pizza, since it is the birthplace. We finally found a place, had a delicious pizza, and then caught a train back to Rome.
