Pompei & Vesuvius
Walking about in the archeological ruins of Pompei & Herculaneum was the trip highlight for me. They're so well preserved because of Vesuvius' angry eruption 2000 years ago. It was like being time-warped back. We inspected many houses of the people who lived back then. Some of those 2 millenia old mosaic decorated floors look better than my 10 yr old terracotta tiles. The attractiveness of the courtyard house with the bedrooms looking into the indoor garden & water feature welcoming guests as they enter the house is timeless.
