Visiting Pompeii as people form ancient antiquity.
Тo visit Pompeii dressed as citizens of Roman empire it was a dream for us. Fortunately it happened after we manage to make this trip possible. We love history of Pompeii, and the thought of temples, streets and all of the antiquity there, all this excites us. We used to read books on Bulgarian and English аnd we discussed a lot on the subject. In short, we (me and my twin brother) was a huge geek from the get-go.
Being such a huge history geek, visiting Pompeii, the city destroyed by Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, has always been high on my list of things to do. The falling ash came so quickly it preserved the city just as it was. It’s a place frozen in time. This year 2013, we finally managed to visit it, reincarnated as Roman citizens.
We’ve traveled tru Italy and seen plenty of marvelous ruins, but this is one of the best. The buildings, the frescoes, the streets, the pots, the bodies-everything is so well preserved аnd even though a lack of upkeep has taken its toll on the site, I still found it a fascinating place to spend the day. My only hope is that the Italian government will get its act together to keep this site from falling into further disrepair. Located near Naples, Italy, Pompeii takes a full day to see.
So many places we visited!The most crowded place in Pompeii, the forum is right near the main gate. It was the main center of life in Pompeii and is also were you can go see the relics they found.
This huge amphitheater is where Pompeans held the ancient games that entertained them. The Lupanar of Pompeii, House of the Faun in Pompeii, the Villa of the Mysteries in Pompeii.
Wonderful recalls from this re-enacting journey.
