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.

Napoli

The Destruction of Pompeii, 79 AD Naples is well placed for day trips to Pompeii, Vesuvius, and hopefully boat trips to the Island of Stromboli.

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.
