May 12th, 2009

I am touring one of Italy’s most popular tourist attractions. A city destroyed, and completely buried, during a long catastrophic eruption of a volcano spanning two days in AD 79. Although it was discovered in the 16th century, serious excavation began only in 1748, revealing a city petrified in time. In some buildings paintings and sculpture have survived, and graffiti is still visible on the walls – this I gotta see!

Where am I? What is the name of the volcano?


The correct answers are Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius. What a chunk of the top of that mountain is missing, huh? The guidebook said to allow a full day to explore, and as usual, it was right on the money. Of course, I spent 6 hours and only explored the very perimeter of the site. I have it on my plan to return this Sunday, and get over to Naples to see the museum, you know, where all the “good” stuff is, what antiquities survived the looting in the 16th Century.

Thanks for playing. This game is now closed
