Ancient art!

Recently, I had the opportunity to visit the ancient cities of Herculaneum and Pompei, in Italy.

Coming from Greece, a country with serious heritage and large ancient history, I was hesitating to what I would see, but after my visit I can’t help being overwhelmed by the findings at those sites.

Not only the architecture was impressive but also the art that has been preserved was extraordinary too!

Here, I would like to give an idea about the paintings on the walls of Herculaneum and Pompei, paintings that are conserved in the state that they were in 79BC!
