Ruins of Pompeii in Pictures


Pompeii has attracted visitors since it was unearthed. Athough it is being re-destroyed through natural phenomena and visitor-induced damage, Pompeii still offers a rare glimpse of ancient life, and so, draws its share of photographers. Here are some of the collections of photos of the ruins of Pompeii on this site.
