As the train sped through the countryside, we can see Mt Vesuvius, majestic and quiescent but wasn't so in history, AD79 to be exact.
I've been to Pompeii before and this was my second visit. Its very easy to get to from Naples train station. You don't even need to leave the station, just follow the signs that say 'Circumvesuviana'. This little train goes from Naples to Sorrento and back. On the way it stops at Pompeii. Its that easy. There seems to have been more work done to the site, I see more frescoes being uncovered and restored.
