Pompeii was not terribly impressive. It’s just like any other Roman ruins, since all the items and wall coverings have been carried off to museams. There is not really anthing to see but Roman streets and stray dogs (and a replica of a brothal, if you are that kind of person, and I’m not.)
Here are some photos I took.
Some have wondered how I could be disappointed in Pompeii. Too high expectations from looking at photos of it is the most likely cause. (I went expecting a Roman city with no people, and bread still on the tables.) Either that our tour guide did not show us very much. Even my photos here show the fascinating details of the city that take some looking to discover. If you go to Pompeii, just plan on seeing a bombed out bunch of brick buildings. Then, the touches of ancient life that you do find will be impressive.
