So...I'm breaking the Naples trip down by days to make it easier for me and less boring for you.
The first day was 8 hours of riding on a bus and then Pompei.
It looked rainy when we got to Naples, but then finally started raining on us right as we started our tour of Pompei. Thankfully it stopped raining after about twenty minutes, which also cleared the crowds out.
This was towards the start of our tour, it was one of the main squares of Pompei.
One of the infamous plaster casts of the bodies found at Pompei. This guy was trying to cover his nose and mouth from the poisionous gas. I can't explain how weird it was to see this place that was preserved from 79 A.D. It was surreal!
This was one of the entrances to the bathhouses. I believe it was on the men's side. Very picturesque.
This was in the courtyard of the largest house in Pompei. The House of Faun. (Named so after a statue in the courtyard)
A scene from the brothel. They had a "menu" of different options you could ask for. This is one of the options.
One of the statues on the wall at the bathhouse.
A view of the huge courtyard and a view of Vesuvius. If you look you can see it shrouded in the clouds.
I believe this is still part of the bathouse, on the side of the goblet it has the price engraved on how much it costs to use it.

The fruit stand outside of Pompei, where I might add I purchased the best lemon granita (slush) I've had since I've been in Italy.
Look for more trip pics tomorrow!
