... It was a very sad thing to see.
We also went to the top of Vesuvius and looked down into the crater. There are active fumaroles in there, perfuming the air with sulfur. The view from the top was spectacular. We could see Naples and probably Pompeii and Hurculanum. There are many, many people living right on top of the areas that were destroyed.

I have an address for Camping Zeus. Wasn't sure if we should use it to get to ...
... wasn’t as I had pictured. Learning all about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius at school and how the city of Pompeii was buried under a layer of lapilli thus preserving a slice of life in August AD 79, I always visualised everything covered in a black layer of lava type rock. It is obviously not the case!! It has all been excavated unveiling beautiful mosaic floors, marble tables and colourful frescos. We spent around four hours wandering up and down its streets, the ...
