From Rome we took a train to Naples and then another one to Pompeii.
What a feeling of life in the Roman Empire you get from visiting this place
preserved for us by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. I first
learned of Pompeii from The
Last Days of Pompeii as a young girl. It has fascinated me
since then. Here's a picture of the Caldarium
at the Forum Baths. I was delighted to be able to make this visit.
The audio tour was excellent, as they all are.
