Pompeii was an ancient Roman town in the Campania region of Italy.  Pompeii and the region is famous for the death and destruction caused by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Mount Vesuvius is a backdrop to the city.

All 11,000 residents the inhabitants of the town were killed in the eruption which buried the city under several tons of ash.

The site was forgotten about for 15 centuries when it was discovered.  Once again, the city was forgotten, then rediscovered in 1748.  Victims of the eruption and artifacts were well preserved because of the lack of air in the volcanic ash.

For more than 200 years Pompeii has become more and more popular as a tourist destination.  Today it has more than 2 million visitors a year.
