Life can change in a moment and you will find this saying to be true when you visit Pompeii. This place is very famous for the occurrences that have taken place back in 79 AD. The eruption of Mount Vesuvius had changed the complete picture of the town.
After the eruption, the town was covered in ashes and with it, the livelihood of many people was even concealed. But this eruption captured the Roman life and froze the time for the coming generation to explore the magnificence of the place.
