Day 9 Naples

It was a wet welcome to Naples and our trip to Pompeii

This unique site is vast, a whole commercial Roman Town - frozen in time.

The streets still bear the rut marks from the chariots and carts. many of the buildings are intact (or very close too)

In one there is a mosaic of a dog that bears the Roman equivalent of ‘Beware of the Dog’

It is easy to forget how big this disaster was - over 75% of the population lost on that August night in AD79 - over 20,00 souls.

Again I will let the pictures do the talking.

Tomorrow Corsica and a trip to the forests and mountains.
