As part of our day in Naples, we visited the nearby ruins of the city of Pompeii. We were able to see Mount Vesuvius while the sun was rising from our boat early that morning.
When Mount Vesuvius, the nearby volcano, erupted the city was buried and covered in ash. Much of the city and objects that laid underneath was well preserved.
These stepping stones were how they crossed the street.
There was such an eerie feeling seeing all the objects and even bodies that had been preserved by the ash. Such an unbelievable tragedy. The city was fascinating.
