From Rome, we traveled to Pompeii. This ancient city was partially buried by by ash during the volcanic eruption of Mt Vesuvias in 79 AD. Now, the remains are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and attracts 2.6 million visitors every year.
After our tour of Pompeii we continued to the quiet town of Sorrento, along the Amalfi Coast. This was the last stop before our journey home.
