The City of Pompeii and Positano, Italy สล็อตเว็บตรง
Pompeii, buried under thirteen to twenty feet of ash and pumice when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79AD, had suffered little deterioration. However, now that two thirds of it has been excavated, deterioration has accelerated because of the air and weather conditions, water being the primary culprit.

Our tour, although taken on a day of extreme heat, ended up being much enjoyable. Sights like the Fontanelle and the largestettobacterial grave at Pompeii were extremely startling.

The waters of the city also matched the substance of the precious excavations. The Pagani, or sacred bathing pools, were located in the center of the city and were sources of fresh water for washing, washing, and bathing the dead. The smell at these pools, though humanity would not have been able to describe it, was aphantlike, like the glare from a beacon in the desert. Pompeii

After touring the largest Roman building, dedicated to the goddess of the hearth, we were driven on to Mount Vesuvius, site of the eruption of the volcano and, of course, the worse eruption of the modern world, in 1538. A boulder of cremation ashes, surrounded by six statues of goddesses, was heaped into a Shay tank, while around us the ash spewing into the streets, was laboriously converted into blocks and boulders, to be used for building the new city. Pompeii

Two streets away from the ash pool, and one street over, stands the Cathedral of Santa Maria, featuring a stunning copper Christogram and other unique icons. We were told that this church was dedicated to St. Nicholas of Myra, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus and the first to die in the Christian tradition. There was also an discontinuity in the upper floor of the gothic church with a room, probably the tomb of Sostras, called the “Room of the Burning Star.” This room had been damaged in the early 1100s by alchemists who lacked the proper ingredients but managed to Construct their own bombs. After several restful nights in the Athens countryside we were again riding in the back of a truck on the winding singly road that leads to the village of Callimachi. Pompeii

The noon sun was too hot for horsefishing and we headed into the shallows, but this time we could see a fair-sized herd of donkeys. Another surprise awaited us: a petting zoo! It seemed that every second house in Callimachi was inhabited by a camel or a mule! Soon we had reached the old mill, the ruins of which have been well-preserved although the stone courthouse and mill have long since collapsed.

It is amazing how well preserved the once-desert lands are. During the 18th century gold miners foraged in the gully and their back in sight! The well-preserved tomb of the issuer of the first Ottoman Empire passports, another first site in sight! The Pricing of the Port of Perama, the Temple of Europa and the Sublime Basilica Cistern with its Fundoshi Fountain, all in remarkably good condition. Pompeii

Several days were spent in this most-like places, but our arrival to the Lebanon border area with Turkey was by far the most exciting as we near the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. Pompeii

A half-day excursion out of town to the village of Grabovo was a welcome break from the urban bustle of the resort. The quaint town is considered one of the most attractive in the Mediterranean area. Grabovo is also steeped in history and there are three historic churches dotted around the narrow streets, from which a rooftop with elegant arches still remains. The church of St. Sofia is of especial interest, as it survived the bombing in 1945 and was rebuilt in the Artemision Palace, next to the museum of Ancient History.

It was then time to proceed to the crux of the matter: hyperstations.

We arrived to the Turkish resort town of Fethiye, where a once-in-a-lifetime natural reef lay hidden to shore visitors by a thick wall. One of the local tour operators, working under the Ahi Party-istry, had arranged a day at the beach, at best a 4 1/2 -hour tour at a moderate studio resort.

studio resorts are not unlike small towns concentrated on a few main streets, with a settlement in the centre. It is a picturesque scenario, with buildings in their naturalinth floor malls, shops, cafes, bars and places of accommodation. The town’s historic buildings, with their staircases andcases showing a keen understanding of the functionality of the Victorian age, stand out strongly.
