We will be driving along the foot of Mount Vesuvius, the famous volcano located near the Bay of Naples.
Here are some little knows facts about the mighty mt. Vesuvius:
- Vesuvius had a famous eruption in the year 79 A.D., completely burying the ancient Roman city of Pompeii under a thick blanket of ashes.
- Approximately 2000 people lost their lives during this eruption, and Pompeii was completely abandoned for hundreds of years.
- In 1748, a group of explorers rediscovered Pompeii! The city was still mostly intact underneath all the ash.
- All of the buildings, artifacts, and skeletons that remained in the buried city have taught us a lot about a Roman’s life in ancient times.
