... my concerns, Catia was a very good driver. Our new tour member was called Romeo and we became slightly concerned about him when we arrived in Positano. He didn't look so good and had to ask where we were. He was quite shaky and said that he'd only had 3 hours sleep so had drunk 5 cups of coffee already.

There are whole bodies on display that were buried in the ash. ...
... s a great guide, and I can recommend it to anyone visiting the site. (He also has ones for most major cities in Europe, but I haven't had a chance to try those yet).
I could easily fill a dozen blogs just with information about Pompeii, so I'll try and just keep it to a quick overview. Pompeii and Herculaneum were thriving Ancient Roman port cities, right up until the 24th of August 79AD. On that day, the great mountain, Vesuvius, erupted ...
