Although it's void of most of its original frescoes and mosaics, Pompeii is an amazing marvel of a 2,000 year old town in a well preserved state. When an erupting volcano buries you in ash in a 24-48 hour period, not much escapes. These beautiful decoarations ringed the upper edges of the central sauna. When they went to the gym, they went in style.
