No better place to get a glimpse into an ancient Roman city than in Pompeii! We had been here before, but couldn’t resist to walk through the streets again, looking into villas, houses and stores, imagining the life of the people who lived here until 79 AD.
One of the things we love most are the worn streets with the big stones to cross them without getting dirty.
There were at least 31 bakeries in Pompeii, each with wood-burning ovens, millstones and a sales counter. Such an oven full of numerous loafs of bread was discovered, left behind by a fleeing baker.
Besides of Pompeii, there was one more sight we wanted to see in the region of Naples, and that was the Reggia di Caserta, the royal palace – more on our next post.
