    I absolutely loved the ancient city of Pompei, it was very emotional to wander about the ruins listening to the horrible story of their destiny, and trying to imagine the terror they lived during those hours.

      Hi Angela. I agree, I found myself imagining the terror that the people who lived there must have felt, while walking the streets. It was strange to be walking in these peoples homes, and the ruins are so well preserved that you can make out the different rooms of their homes, such as their kitchens with the stoves etc. It is an amazing place.

    We’re planning a big trip to Italy for this fall and will definitely put this on our list!

      Hi Kris, Italy is an amazing country and we enjoyed every minute of our time there. The history and culture is amazing. Pompeii is a wonderful but also kind of sad experience, because you can see what the people there must have gone through.
