Ruins of Pompeii, Italy Pinterest// @gayatrisis5

Ruins of Pompeii, Italy. The city of Pompeii is a partially buried Roman town-city near modern Naples in the Italian region of Campania, in the territory of the comune of Pompei. One of the most memorable places I've ever been.

The Sunken City of Baia, Italy. It was a Roman seaside resort on the Bay of Naples.Baiae was even more popular than Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Capri. Baiae was sacked by Muslim raiders in the 8th century AD and was deserted because of malaria by 1500. Because of coastal subsidence most of Baiae is now under water in the Bay of Naples, largely due to local volcanic activity.

Pompeii - House of the Small Fountain. The small fountain is located in the mosaic-covered nymphaeum.  A nymphaeum in ancient Greece and Rome was a monument consecrated to the nymphs, especially those of springs. The house itself, on the Via di Mercurio, dates from the first century B.C. and is a typical atrium-style house.
