Pompeii day 1-3. We headed to the Forum, the community center of a Roman town. Well, this became the heart of Pompeii after 80 BC when Sulla conquered Pompeii. Before that the Triangular Forum which we will see some pictures of later, was the center of the old Samnite Pompeii. On the left those 2 storey white columns are what is left of the Basilica, the law courts. These were actually damaged in the big earthquake of 62 AD and never really repaired before Vesuvius buried the town. See Vesuvius brooding in back of the tour group.
