In Pompeii, we hired a personal tour guide. We booked a 4 hour tour which maybe sounds long, but actually seemed too short. We could've easily spent days exploring everywhere there. Our guide was amazing. He was really knowledgeable and I could tell he was actually really interested in explaining everything to us. It really added to the experience - I don't think I would've been as fascinated by everything if I just walked around on my own. We learned a lot about how the ancient Romans lived back then. While walking through, I kept wishing I could go back in time to see how it actually was.
If you don't know much about Pompeii, it is a UNESCO site and one of the most visited attractions in Italy. It was an ancient town that got destroyed and buried under ~6 metres of volcanic ash after Mt. Vesuvius erupted in 79AD. Most of the inhabitants were able to leave but over a thousand were unable to escape and died there. Their bodies were found still in their final position before death, as the volcanic ash hardened around them and preserved the shapes. Much of the city still remains unexcavated.
My favourite building is the Public Baths (photo above). The interiors were so intricate and beautiful.
I just checked into a new hotel (the Casa Morgano) today! This is the jacuzzi bath which I LOVE. Also love their navy blue slippers. So comfy. Will do a full review on this hotel as well soon!
