Pompeii, Italy. This history is awesome. The volcano erupted and the lava covered the whole village. Now the whole village is ALWAYS going to be remembered. I have wanted to go here for years.

In the year 79 AD, Italy& Mt. Vesuvius erupted with superheated ash that rained fiery death on several Roman cities nearby. But none was hit harder than vacation town Pompeii, which was buried in a thick layer of broiling ash in a matter of seconds.

The Roman city of Pompeii was destroyed by the volcano Vesuvius erupting in AD 79. The entire community of approximately 20,000 inhabitants was buried under 60 feet of ash and rock. The ruins stood for 1,700 years after the eruption before being discovered by workmen in 1748. The eruption of Vesuvius actually helped preserve the city's architecture, making it an important part of our understanding of life in ancient Rome.
