A view over Pompeii toward Mount Vesuvius - Pompii, Italy. Cool. Was just here and blown away by how big it was. This gives you a good sense of the city.

The city of Pompeii is a partially buried Roman town-city near modern Naples in the Italian region of Campania, in the territory of the comune of Pompei. Along with Herculaneum, Pompeii was partially destroyed and buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79.
