Hiking Mount Vesuvius and Visiting Pompeii in Italy

It's almost impossible for you to not learn anything about the history of Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii when you were at least in middle school. Such a huge history in the world, so huge that the story had been passed down by people for over 2,000 years, including the archaeological discoveries by experts.

The ancient city of Pompeii — famously ruined in A.D. 79 when mighty Mount Vesuvius blew its top — is one of Italy's most popular tourist attractions. Checking out Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii had been high on my list since I learned about it back in high school, if I remember correctly. Not only that, visiting the attractions with my 72-year-old grandpa who had a lifetime dream of visiting Italy was also a bonus for me.
