The Lost City of Pompeii (Pompeii, Italy)

11.19.2012- Pompeii has the most impressive ruins I have seen anywhere in Europe.  I found it to be even more impressive than the Acropolis or Delos in Greece.  Left undisturbed for nearly 1700 years, it serves as a museum, frozen in time right down to the people (you can see plaster casts of unlucky citizens still in their last defensive position during your visit).  The ruins are so impressive with many buildings standing where they once were, floor mosaics fully intact, and colorful wall murals.
