... city that likely would have otherwise been just the rocky floor plan of once existing buildings, rather than buildings that are exceptionally still intact and in some cases so much so that they're missing almost only their roofs, which didn't survive Vesuvius massive tantrum. Interesting side note Vesuvius is still an active volcano and well past due for a rumble, not extinct and cold as I had thought it to be. Another surprise of the site other than the lack of evidence ...

Napoli - Taken from the ''Hop On Hop Off Bus' tour
Mt Vesuvius - We had a great view from that touristy thing (the Hop on Hop Off Bus ' ) that our Rachel does not approve of.
- Another great shot from the Hop on Hop Off Bus

Tennis anyone? - Jennifer, if you need a venue ...
... After a very tasty lunch we went to the Archelogical Museum in a former barracks which has many items from Pompei and Herculaneum. In true Italian style for no reason some bits were closed althoguh we still saw plenty.

Tomorrow we are off to Florence. I'm not sure how nice it will be in the winter, but I guess we'll find out.
