I'd love to visit Pompeii one day, and hopefully climb the volcano that destroyed the little town below.

I studied Pompeii and Herculaneum in year 12 (Pompeii being pictured) and so am determined to experience it for myself.

Herculaneum, Pompeii sister city, also buried in the eruption. Was hermetically sealed by the ash and lava so many items such as bone and wood were preserved, which was not the case with Pompeii. However, there is a modern city above herculaneum, so only about 25% has been excavated.

Pompeii side street...bucket list place since I was in school

Pompeii - an amazing place. I read recently that some buildings are collapsing - very sad as it's an amazing place.

Pompeii - this architecture was the standard by which they lived - what is our current standard - the strip mall and the mini mart - our architecture will not hold up to the test of time
