We were so lucky to spend our babymoon with our first baby in Italy. It was magical, it was educational, and I’m sure I made my son addicted to pizza and pasta for life. We were so sad that we didn’t get to stop at Pompeii while in Italy, and vowed we’d visit next Italy trip. If you’re not familiar, Pompeii is a city with some crazy history! It was a vacation spot for wealthy Roman families, and one many resided in. An earthquake hit that shook the city, and a few days later Mount Vesuvius had a volcanic erupted and both demolished and perfectly preserved the city. It was lost for almost 2000 years, and then uncovered with Roman culture perfectly preserved with artifacts, mummies, and buildings beneath the ash.
So when we heard the artifacts of Pompeii are touring, and are currently on display at the Arizona Science Center, we knew it needed to be on the date night list. The Pompeii Exhibit is kind of one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences that we feel so lucky to have spent a night viewing! It’s also quite a bit cheaper than a trip to Italy, for the record.
