The Villa In Pompei
this was were ancient romens went to thier villas in Naples
Pompeii was a resort town in the Roman Empire,
located South of Naples on the western coast of Italy.
Many wealthy Romans had "country homes" there.
At it's height Pompeii had a population of nearly 20,000 people
This happens to be a highly active volcanic area,
and on August 24, 79 A.D. the city was buried by the eruption of nearby Mt. Vesuvius.
Most people fled the eruption at the start,
but an estimated 2000 people opted to stay and were buried in the eruption along with the city.
