Day 4: Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius Up Close

Students visited the ancient ruins of Pompeii today. They explored the ruins throughout the city, sang in Latin and viewed the preserved frescos. 

Student Reflection by Sean Mendiola, Gr. 12
I was amazed to see the frescos in the Pompeii villas. Seeing the frescos pop proved to me how advanced their lifestyle was. I was really impressed because Pompeiians took the time to show off their culture through art. Seeing the frescos and their beautiful colors reminded me that the story of Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius was real, and it gives me a foundation to appreciate antiquity.
