Italy - 9, Pompeii

Hi, On our way from Sorrento to Rome we stopped at Pompeii for a few hours.  The photos should provide a general impression of what can be seen there.

One thing that is very different from the other Roman ruins we have seen is the presence of statues, some huge.  Samples are above, below and scattered through out the post.

Bits of some of the murals survive.

Here are the rooms of two homes (above and below).

This art work was part of a ceiling.

From Pompeii our group drove to Rome where we were dropped at our hotel at the airport.  The next morning we would fly to Barcelona, Spain.  Thanks for looking.
