Visit the Roman city Pompeii in Italy - Bucketlist #33

Famous for being the Roman city that was destroyed by the Vesuvius eruption in 79 a.C. Two thousand people died, and the town was abandoned for many years.

When a group of explorers rediscovered the site in 1748, they were surprised to find that Pompeii was practically intact under a layer of dust and debris.

Thanks to the buildings, artefacts and skeletons found in the buried city we were able to discover a lot about everyday life in the ancient world.
