Kitchen in Pompeii, Italy

This week’s travel photo is of the remains of a kitchen in the ruins of Pompeii, Italy. Pompeii is one of the most popular ancient RomanĀ archaeological sites in Italy, and the ruins are surprisingly well preserved due to being covered in volcanic ash from nearby Mount Vesuvius for nearly 2000 years.

It truly is amazing how well that place is preserved! Who knew ash would prove to be so helpful in this manner? I loved the stories of how life was lived in Pompeii when I was there last year. Just so very fascinating!
Great blog, by the way!
