Walking Among the Ghosts of Pompeii (20 photos)

Naples-LocatorSeptember 4, 2013

An early port-of-call on our recent Mediterranean cruise was Naples. Nearby Pompeii was first settled in the 6th or 7th century BC by the Greeks. It was conquered by Romans in 80 BC. In 79 AD, a cataclysmic eruption of Mount Vesuvius buried the town under 20 feet of ash and pumice.
