Pompeii – Italy
What remains of the devatated city of Pompeii is an archaeological wonderland that gives its visitors a glimpse of ancient Rome before Mt. Vesuvius wiped out 2,000 of the city’s 20,000 population in 79 A.D. The 66-hectare UNESCO World Heritage Site boasts extraordinarily preserved millennia-old ruins of buildings such as houses, temples, and amphitheaters that were once hubs of life and socialization in the then-flourishing sophisticated Italian city.
