Mount Vesuvius looms over the forum of the ancient city of Pompeii on Friday, Sept. 18, 2015, in Pompeii, Italy. The city of Pompeii was destroyed when the nearby volcano erupted on August 24, AD 79. The town and its residents were buried and forgotten until the ruins were discovered and eventually excavated hundreds of years later. The ruins are one of Italy's top tourist attractions today.
