Italian Art Class 2017
Pompeii is a beautiful city even if it is only ruins. The city is one that would have been thriving back in the day. The marketplace was huge, there was two theaters, and an amphitheater. The amphitheater could hold 20,000 people at the time. Vacationing here back in the day would have had to have been a ton of fun!
Events that would happen here if one was vacationing would be: attending a play of sorts, enjoying the marketplace, taking part in public baths, and attending a gruesome execution at the amphitheater. However, if I was vacationing in Pompeii, I would do things a little differently. I would enjoy the marketplace, speaking to the older locals of the town, and learning as much as I could from them. Because why not learn something while you are vacationing! I would also take advantage of the gardens that are there in Pompeii, just enjoying the smell of the rosemary and lemons. I would also go outside of the city. The terrain around Pompeii is so mountainous that it would be a ton of fun to go hiking in the surrounding areas.
Pompeii would have so much to offer any person who lived during this time. It is a beautiful city with many wonderful frescos. The architecture of the city is one that is immaculate. I am so glad that I got the opportunity to see the ruins of Pompeii.
