My Gr8 Travel Tips Photo Den – The Pompeii Ruins
My Travel Photo Den Feature is of The Historic Ruins of Pompeii.
I captured this photo while touring these amazing ruins of the Lost City of Pompeii. While enjoying our fabulous western Mediterranean cruise vacation, one of the many highlights of the trip included a visit to these remarkable ruins.
Pompeii was a very important and large ancient Roman city Naples. The massive volcanic eruption on August 24 AD 79 destroyed the entire city and the adjacent area as well. The eruption killed and wiped out everyone and everything in its path. The city was literally buried under feet and tons of volcanic ash.

Visiting the Ruins was certainly one of the highlights during our Mediterranean Cruise a few years back. I would definitely recommend a visit to the site of Pompeii, especially if you taking a cruise like we did and looking for a worthwhile Shore Excursion. For History buffs, it certainly is a site not to be missed!
