The ancient city of Pompeii lies below the towering mountain of Vesuvius, and is probably most famous for the massive eruption a long time past. The Roman town was all but destroyed under layers of molten lava from Mount Vesuvius in 79AD but this helped to preserve much of Pompeii and give modern archaeologist an insight into life at that time.
The site is a UNESCO World heritage site and remains unique. Nowadays Pompeii is a district of Naples, but is still a big attraction for tourists who come to see the volcano and to tour the remains of the ancient city.
