Pompei

I can translate the writing on the walls...

- Pompeii by Bastille

You certainly wouldn’t have thought this tip would be on an Italian bucket list were you reading in AD 80. Only a year before that, the town of Pompeii – a sort of Ibiza retreat for Roman 18-30s – had been totally ravaged by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Its deluxe villas were under ash. Many of its people were lost. Archaeologists have now uncovered the town and revealed a time capsule of Roman interest. You can go and wander what’s considered to be one of the most immersive ancient sites in the world. It’s got mosaics, market squares, temples, and even brothels complete with risqué wall murals.
