I've been to Pompei twice, once in 1970 on an organised tour and a second time in 1990 when
we went on the train from Sorrento and walked round on our own - the latter was a much better
experience !  Pompei is fascinating with Vesuvius looming in the background, and it takes no
great effort to imagine the huge clouds of smoke and ash which enveloped the town in 79AD.
When we visited, the site appeared somewhat dilapidated - I hope things have improved since.

Did You Know.... that when Vesuvius erupted on 24 August AD 79, it engulfed not only
the flourishing Roman town of Pompei, but also the seaside resort of Herculaneum, as
well as the many wealthy villas in the area ?

Pompeii - one "i" or two ? As far as I can
ascertain - and you can see from the postcards
- the Italian spelling is with one "i", whilst the
anglicized version has two. Any other ideas ?
