Mount Vesuvius is a stratovolcano on the Bay of Naples, about 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) east of Naples and a short distance from the shore. It is the only volcano on the European mainland to have erupted within the last hundred years, although it is not currently erupting. Mount Vesuvius is best known for its eruption in AD 79 that led to the destruction of the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. They were never rebuilt, although surviving townspeople and probably looters did undertake extensive salvage work after the destructions. The towns' locations were eventually forgotten until their accidental rediscovery in the 18th century;

It's a fact that the perfection of the Doric temples of Aechaean Posidonia, named later Roman Paestum, dazzles and stuns the visitors. The basilica and the temples of Neptune and Ceres, surprise for the sobriety of their structures as well as, for their magnificence and sacred-ness.
