    Pompeii ii

    October 4, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    More from what has been an excellent day touring Pompeii. It is huge and It is incredible to think how much material has been removed in order to expose the ruins. Work is still continuing with much of the area still to be unearthed. You will need all day to visit this site and you will need plenty of food and drink especially in the summer when there is no relief from the sunRead more

    Pompeii iii

    October 4, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Last few pics. It is just amazing. We would suggest that you with a get a tour guide or an audio guide. There is no information inside the ruins and the maps and paper guides are confusing and out of date which makes wandering quite difficult. It is definitely worth paying for a guide.Read more

    Home Cooked Food

    October 4, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    We are staying in a lovely room with a view of Mount Vesuvius and last night the father in law of the owner cooked us dinner and it was beautiful. We sat outside with a bottle of wine and had the anti pasti you can see and genuine home cooked carbonara. The Visa View apartment in Pompeii is a little gem of a place.Read more

    Pompei - Part 3 - plaster people

    August 13, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    So after the ash and gas killed the population of Pompei they were entombed.
    The decompensation resulted in hollow “moulds” of their last resting positions.
    Someone centuries later on discovering these decided to fill them with liquid plaster and make the plaster casts figures seen today.Read more

    Pompei- part 1

    August 13, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Great 4 hours out at Pompei.
    Easily got the early train after purchasing our “walking tour with an archaeologist” tickets-this was the best option after researching it.
    Francesca our guide was Informative with the basics of what we were looking at starting with the gate to the city, the Basillica etc.
    We learnt that even before Vesuvius covered it in ash and killed people with poisonous gases in 79AD, the City was being rebuilt due to an earthquake several years earlier.
    The Romans certainly knew how to make roads with drainage, buildings with pipework and the most amazing frescos and mosaics-the photos couldn’t do it justice

    We caught the Freccarossa fast train from Rome to Naples...reaching up to 298kph on the way. Our driver and mercedes van were waiting for us at the station and drove us to the Pompeii ruins. A private guide then took us for a 2 hour tour of the ruins which was fantastic! After the tour she took us back to a restaurant, where the driver was waiting, who then summoned the waiter who set us up at the best table in the place...we felt like VIP's! After lunch the driver (who had waited for us for 3 hours by this stage), took us to our AirBnB at Sorrento.

    Unbelievable story of the burial of Pompeii from the rocks and ash from Mt. Vesuvius. Very interesting...

    Danach war Nichts mehr wie es vorher war.

    Uppe med tuppen idag. Hyrbilen ska luftas och vi ska på äventyr. Förenade med daggpatrullen stod vi i kö för att lösa biljett till Pompei. Sen har vi vandrat på stengatorna och ruinerna. Känns i knän och vader 😎Read more

    Wir sind in Pompeji angekommen. Der Campingplatz Fortuna Village ist recht ordendlich und für €27,- den Preis wert.

    Nachdem wir unsere Vorräte wieder aufgefüllt haben gehts zum Sightseeing. Der Eintritt war sogar kostenlos. Das NO CANE Schild wurde gekonnt ignoriert damit der Charly mit kommen kann. Pompeji war ganz lässig und interessant! Leider war kein Guide verfügbar.

    Was auf der ganzen Reise noch gar nicht aufm Speiseplan war ist eine Wagenradgroße Pizza. 🍕 Das wird umgehend geändert!
