An ancient city of southern Italy southeast of Naples. Founded in the sixth or early fifth century b.c., it was a Roman colony by 80 b.c. and became a prosperous port and resort with many noted villas, temples, theaters, and baths. Pompeii was destroyed by an eruption of Mount Vesuvius in a.d. 79. The incredibly well-preserved ruins were rediscovered in 1748 and have been extensively excavated. (

PS: the mountain you see in the left is the volcano Vesuvius
