The Baths of Pompeii

Pompeii Scavi was one of the most fascinating of the places we visited while in Italy. I was immediately struck by how well preserved the entire site is, especially considering the lack of security, exposure to the elements, and less than state-of-the-art methods of restoration used throughout. Many of the interiors were closed to visitors, however the ones that we could access were truly amazing.
