Porta Marina, Pompeii: 9 reviews and 14 photos
If you are visiting Pompeii, Porta Marina will likely be your first glimpse of the ancient city. It lies right inside the entrance closest to the train station. From its name, you might dedcue that it had something to do with the sea, but can't figure out why. Well, before Vesuvius erupted, this is where the coastline was located!! After Vesuvius did its destruction, the coastline now lies over a kilometer away. That is a massive amount of soil deposited!
