A September 2000 trip
to Pompeii by travel2000
Quote: I've now been to Pompeii twice, and each time I left with more curious about life before the great tragedy. It was a very hot day, but as soon as our guide started talking, any thoughts of discomfort quickly evaporated...

He guided us through to see the major sights, and at each place, gave excellent historic background and stories. My favorite was when he pointed out some graffiti on the walls, apparently from a political election right before the volcano erupted. It's these small details-if he didn't bring it up, I would've missed out completely. Someone in our group had previously visited Pompeii on an extensive college tour, and even she found our guide both informative and entertaining.
