Ancient Ruins of Pompeii



As an ancient history student in high school there have always been a handful of historical locations in the world that i would love to explore, one being the Mt Vesuvius and the Ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. 

We left Rome for a day trip down to Naples. The drive was around 3 hours including stops for petrol and food. After arriving at the main gate of Vesuvio National Park, rangers notified us that the park was closed due to unpredictable climate. So we decided to make our way to the excavation site of Pompeii to begin exploring.

You cant begin to understand what the lives of citizens of Pompeii was like in 79AD when Mt. Vesuvius erupted until you visit the ruins. A peaceful sight with haunting memories.
