We have finally visited

Pompeii

.
This review is exclusively about the ruins.
1ruins-of-ancient-pompeii.jpgI used to think that there is nothing to look at - as the ruins are just the ruins... But it’s different when you are in those places, and it is perceived in another way. There you feel that it was someone else's home and one "perfect" day everything had ended suddenly(((...
Moreover, it is necessary to feel it living there. We stayed there for 2 nights. This location is known to be one of the most dangerous places on earth, as the volcano is about to explode, um...
Different experts from around the world follow Vesuvius, but I was feeling unsafe. The old story says that there was an earthquake before that tragic day in

Pompeii

- it's a bad sign! Earthquakes commonly happen before the eruption of volcanoes.
Luckily, nothing was shaking and nothing had erupted)))... But still, I wonder how do people live there???
The city of Pompeii is just a godsend for archaeologists!
2ruins-of-ancient-pompeii.jpgAround there are groups of tourists, who follow a guide like penguins...
If you wish to see the location with ruins, you’d better come there early in the morning!
The road in

Pompeii

is preserved from those times!!!

In those ancient times, the city was relatively big (by the standards of that time) and uniquely a wealthy one.

22ruins-of-ancient-pompeii.jpgThere were a lot of poor people in the city as well, who didn’t have the opportunity to make meals at home, so there were such “canteens” for them… 
23ruins-of-ancient-pompeii.jpgVarious "public places", such as various baths (term), temples and others are impressive by its size.
