Where is it?
Destruction of Pompeii
Vesuvius destroyed the city of Pompeii in AD 79.
what you can do at Pompeii
Today you can walk a trail to the top of the volcano and look at the hole at the top.
When Mt. Vesuvius erupted, the ash piled 70 feet high.
After the ash shot out, it killed the people, and when other people they poured plaster the people were statues.
Mt. Vesuvius is asleep now and Pompeii is a museum with out a roof.
