The city of Pompei is one of the most famous ancient roman cities.
The modern Pompei isnt really worth a visit. But because of the huge mass of relicts and a hole city preserved from roman times, ther're a lot of bars and restaurants, also shops that sell things tourist like. If you plan to go there, take yourself time for more than one day, to watch the ancient ruins.It's amazing and even shocking a little bit if you are there and imagine what happened to those people and how suddenly. Take some pictures too.
