Pompeii is an ancient city that was destroyed in its prime by the eruption of a volcano, the iconic Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Despite all of the destruction, the layer of ash which covered the ruins of the city preserved it and it still stands today in great condition.
A former highly advanced city, visitors can walk through its ruins to explore the Temple of Jupiter and the Temple of Apollo, The House of the Faun( Casa del Fauno) and the Amphitheatre. There are also plasters casts of the unfortunate victims of the disaster, buried under the ash forever.
Naples is home to seasonal and fresh foods that are also cheap, resulting in a delicious cuisine that is quite affordable. Food is a big deal in Naples, and trying local dishes is one of the best ways to connect with people at a new destination.
