The ancient city Pompeii was buried under volcanic ash in 79AD when Mt Vesuvius erupted. The ruins still stand and the area was huge - took 3 hours to cover half the grounds. #pompeii

Mother nature’s fury... these ruins is all that remains of the once rich and vibrant Roman port city of Pompeii after Mt. Vesuvius (background) erupted and buried everything with volcanic ash up to 6 meters deep back in 79 AD. Vesuvius has erupted several times since then making it the only active volcano on mainland Europe for the last one hundred years. It’s last eruption was in 1944 . . . . . . . . . #pompeii #iitaly #mountvesuvius #travelstoriesworld #amateursalbum #natgeoyourshot #earthtraveler #planet_earth_shots #yourshotphotographer #photography

Some more stuff found in the #pompeii ruins, probably from a "sorceress" because these things were likely used in fertility and/or love rituals. Things also found in Pomeii that should be noted: a horse that was saddled up and ready to go (didn't make it, obvs) and sexy murals (think Caligula). 🤭 #witchystuff #artifacts #smithsonian

Aug 17, 2019

#pompeii 🇮🇹 Pompeii one of the most significant proofs of Roman civilization and, like an open book, provides outstanding information on the art, customs, trades and everyday life of the past. The city has re-emerged from the darkness of centuries precisely as it would have been when it was unexpectedly buried in the thick layer of ash and lava which poured down from the devastating eruption of Vesuvius. It was the year 79 A.D. The scale of the tragedy was appalling: in what had been one of the most active and splendid Roman centres, life came to a permanent standstill. The thick layer of volcanic material which submerged it, made up to a large extent of ash and lapilli - non-hard material, unlike that which covered Herculaneum and which solidified into extremely hard stone -has meant that the city has remained intact until the present day, not only as far as its buildings are concerned, but also as regards the contents inside the houses and shops, providing an absolutely fascinating picture of "daily" life. The signs on the shop doorways indicate the activity carried out there or the name of the owner. Alongside the elegant villas belonging to the nobility and the luxurious residences of the middle class, stand modest houses where several families lived. The peasant dwellings on the other hand are situated. The houses still contain furniture, ornaments, gold and silverware, work tools, kitchenware, bronze and terracotta.

#pompeii 🇮🇹 Pompeia foi uma cidade do Império Romano situada a 22 km da cidade de Nápoles, na Itália, no território do atual município de Pompeia. A antiga cidade foi destruída durante uma grande erupção do vulcão Vesúvio no ano 79, que provocou uma intensa chuva de cinzas que sepultou completamente a cidade. Ela se manteve oculta por 1600 anos, até ser reencontrada por acaso em 1748. Cinzas e lama protegeram as construções e objetos dos efeitos do tempo, moldando também os corpos das vítimas, o que fez com que fossem encontradas do modo exato como foram atingidas pela erupção. Desde então, as escavações proporcionaram um sítio arqueológico extraordinário, que possibilita uma visão detalhada na vida de uma cidade dos tempos da Roma Antiga.

"A visit to Pompeii can be both fascinating and overwhelming. But if you know how to look youll find traces of daily life there that will lead to a surprising discovery; the city's ancient inhabitants weren't that different from the tourists who roam its streets today." • • • #pompei #pompeii

Naples proved to be the most relaxing stop of valbertrinehart and my trip through Europe. Despite the chaos of the city, we enjoyed every minute. From Pompeii to Capri and back again, we were overwhelmed by everybody's hospitality and kindness. Not a bad end to an amazing trip! #valandty2019 #gaycation #pompeii #capri #naples #napoli

Aug 17, 2019

This parasol has a story to tell..... 10 years ago on an incredibly hot day in Pompeii she caught my eye, (pink to make the boys wink naturally) intricately made from bamboo fabric and string and frankly an absolute necessity to deflect the rather intense sun that decided to bear down. I didn’t stay long in Pompeii, despite having purchased the parasol, not sure if it was the heat or the place or the throngs of tourists morbidly clamouring over the somewhat tragic moulds but the combination was a massive turnoff and so I exited having spent less than an hour there much to the dismay of one of the tour guides (who I wasn’t with) who noted the premature departure and bellowed out “but you only just arrived” as I ran out under cover. Since then she has made the occasional appearance but of late lay languishing in a cupboard at my parents’ place. Now she has been adopted by a very eager little new owner who calls it her “sun umbrella” and quite honestly it suits her demeanour and brings far more joy in this role. I wonder what other stories this parasol has to tell from time before Pompeii and time beyond the recent rediscovery...... Just a little reflection on random objects that may have secrets to share.... What stories do your things have? #parasol #pinkparasol #hotsummers #pompeii #origins #storytotell #happytimes #allkindsofmagic #chinesecraft #wooden #sunlight #filter

Fiat 500 - автомобіль , символ Італії 🇨🇮. Почав випускатися в далекому 1957 році. І здавалося б, таким автівкам місце тільки на виставках чи музеях🏰, так ні! Їх і тепер часто можна зустріти на вулицях Італії в робочому стані. І не тільки в якості таксі для принади туристів🚕, а і у аматорів - автомобілістів, вікової категорії 60+. Принаймні я бачила саме таких. #iuna_blog #fiat500 #italy #pompeii # bambino #top #instagram #instalike #фото

#pompei Walking in the past frozen by Vesuvius eruption on August 24, 79 AD. Impressive how the water distribution system, the streets’ lighting, the urban design, even the good governance of trade and foreign currency exchange were set. Democratic elections for politicians were conducted every year! Even prostitution was regulated in a district! I didn’t feel, I’m 2000 years back as we don’t enjoy many of the above. #history #vacation #summer #italy #pompeii
