Italy, Pompeii, 26 June 2017

Pompeii – one of the most popular tourist destinations in Italy, quite a remarkable place. The effort involved in excavating an area this large must have been immense. There are two train stations that will get you into the site, Pompeii Scavi in the West which is on the Sorrento Line and Pompei town in the East which is on another line, they both start from Napoli. I happened to get on the one that stopped in Pompei the town, which wasn’t a bad thing because there is a richly decorated Cathedral in the town, a must see. I spent 3 hours wandering around the site, it was packed with tour groups, many from one cruise ship, they were numbered and labelled hahaha very annoying.
