Pompeii is a seaside city near Rome that was covered over by a volcano in the first century AD. One our
visit, we saw evidence of a very orderly city made of stone that was actually quite sophisticated. The city
has roads, gutters, crosswalks, sidewalks and even flowing water systems like drinking fountains, animal
troughs and fountains. There are many civic sites like sports arenas, theaters and markets.

What are your favorite ancient cities to explore?
We loved the day that we spent exploring Pompeii on our own. There are many famous sites in the front
of "the city", but it takes lots of time to explore to the sites further back. Pompeii is such an interesting
city as it almost seems like it could be remodeled with roofs and electricity to become a very comfortable
and exciting city to live in today.
