More Pompeii



This is the House of the Vettii, a grand private home in Pompeii.


The Capitolium, formerly the Temple of Jove, is at the end of the Forum, with the
ominpresent Mount Vesuvius behind.  The Forum was the center of Pompeii's
religious, civic and economic life.

Breathtaking and beautiful. I'd love to see it for myself.

Just not when Vesuvius is feeling cranky.
