My favorite photos of the ruins of the ancient city of Pompeii, just outside of Naples, Italy. No text, just photos. A nice preview of what a tour of Pompeii might hold for you on your next holiday. My husband is Napolitan and though we've traveled to Italy many times, this December, 2007 was the first time I had ever been to Pompeii. It was truly amazing and the photos tell an excellent story. The great part was that the sky was crystal clear and there were hardly any tourists there--so the photos are just amazing.
