  Pompeii

I visited Pompeii in the middle of the day in August and this means awefully hot weather. I think it was about 35 degrees celcius in the shade that day. Call me crazy, but it was the best time of the day to visit it for me. All the other tourists were still in their air conditioned hotel rooms or cooling of in the pool. I had Pompeii almost to myself!
When I entered this historical site, it looked like a bunch of ruined houses. But walking around there, the atmosphere of the ancient Roman period was getting to me. The more I walked around, the more Pompeii started to impress me. It felt like I was walking around in 79 AD, but that all the people had gone out for the day.
