With plaster casts now scattered about the ancient city, we can observe the images of Pompeians as they died. Most tourists find these casts both macabre and enjoyable.

It is still true today, as J. W. Goethe (1749-1832) wrote about Pompeii, "Many a calamity has happened in the world, but never one that has caused so much entertainment to posterity as this one." People's interest in the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 comes to mind as a modern example of society's fascination with how people react when they recognize that their own death is imminent.Angkor Wat

My impression of Pompeii during my first visit was much like that of Mark Twain's. He found the city fascinating, yet terribly depressing. There are reminders of death everywhere. It is apparent that the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D. caught the Italy Tourist Attractions inhabitants totally by surprise. Destruction and death brought a horrifying end to a day that started out as pleasant as any other August day for Pompeii's citizens.
