I was amazed when I visited the city of Pompeii. Many already know the history. But to visit Pompeii is a moving experience.
This city was built in the time of 600 BC and was completely buried, along with its 20,000 residents, after a massive volcano erupted in 79AD. The city wasn’t discovered until 1748. They recovery began then and continues to this day.
I was shocked that so much of the city was still in tact. The art still on the walls in some homes. To hear the story as I walked the streets for a couple hours was incredible. I took a lot of pictures of this ancient city.
I can’t begin to imagine the horror these people experienced. I’ll now continue to read and learn more of Pompeii.
