Amalfi – day 4 – Pompeii and more cooking

Scroll down to content

Pompeii was a sophicated ancient town near the coast of the Bay of Naples.  It was buried under meters of ash and pumice after the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuivious in 79AD.  The ash was blown over Pompeii in a freak windstorm and the ashes and gases literally stopped all forms of life in a matter of moments.  I was surprised to see that it is still an active archeological site with active digging going on.

The original arena still looks incredible

After we toured Ancient Pompeii we had lunch at the “New Pompeii” then came home for a refreshment before we started to cook dinner.
