Naples and Pompeii

We arrived in Naples on September 10th and stayed until the 12th. We didn’t spend much time in the city of Naples it self, since the main purpose of this stop was to visit Pompeii. We spent about 5 or 6 hrs milling about the ruins and listening to a podcast that Christian downloaded from the internet. The commentator liked to mention that whatever we came across in the city displayed some behaviour that is “just like we do today.” The following day we visited the Archaeological museum in Naples which has an incredible collection of artifacts and art found in Pompeii and Herculaneum. I was particularly interested to see their famous collection of illicit frescoes, but the exhibit was closed because they were under-staffed. At least we got to see the brothel in Pompeii though.

This place was recommended to us by my dad and stepmom. There are only two kinds – meaning that they have absolutely perfected these two varieties.
