Mount Vesuvius erupted in the year AD 79, burying the cities of Pompeii, Oplontis, and Stabiae under ashes and rock fragments, and the city of Herculaneum under a mudflow.

Mount Vesuvius, on the west coast of Italy, is the only active volcano in continental Europe and is thought to be one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world.

Every single resident died instantly when the southern Italian town was hit by a 500°C pyroclastic hot surge.

Numerous bodies were frozen in time, having been preserved in a protective layer of ash before they eventually decayed. 

Around 30,000 people are believed to have died in the chaos, with bodies still being discovered to this day. 

Salma's trip comes after she shared some racy flashback photos from the 1990s on Instagram last week. 

The actress posed completely nude in a bed with silver sheets and a lilac feather boa.
