Pompei


The URL of my Blog is "Pompei Ruins", therefore i'm going to tell you about those amazing ruins: Pompei is located in Italy, in Campania, near Naples, and its ruins are the remains of the ancient Roman City buried by the eruption of the volcano Vesuvium.
There are temples, thermae, gyms, theaters and forums all of them incredibly well preserved by the ashes, but the greatest thing is to walk around a city built more than 2000 years ago, and still looking the same as those times.
You can feel the magnificence of the Roman Empire, their ability in building, and you can see great similarities between them and us: all over the city(it's around 0,63 km2 wide) you will find several "Thermopolium", places where people went to buy beverages and food to consume on the spot...
You can take a look of Pompei with Google Street View, but obviously i suggest to see it:



                             
This is the theatre

                             
This is a view from an higher point

                             
And that's a Thermopolium, it has holes on the counter which were used to keep stuff(food and drinks)

Conclusion: Go visit Pompei, it's AWESOME!
