An active volcano

Mount Vesuvius is an active volcano, the cone is in the Bay of Naples. It is 1,278 m high but we didn't climb to the crater, someone had gone in the dark, to better see the fire. We contemplated when we drove from Naples to Pompeii. It's kind of Humpback Mountain with greenery in her skirt, and a top covered with ashes, which at sunset take on a beautiful purple light. I think that has had about 36 eruptions, the most famous of which covered Pompeii. When you visit Pompeii, and see figures that have remained buried under the ashes, you can not help imagine the disaster. Paradoxically, thanks to this catastrophe, the ancient city of Pompeii was preserved almost perfectly and can still be admired today, through their streets, villages, forums and temples, this Roman city is as it was in its time.
