Pompeii - life on the streets?

A visit to Naples provides an insight into what the streets of Pompeii were like. The presenter draws many parallels between the modern city and the ancient town: owners of businesses living 'above the shop', with steep stairways giving direct access to the street; produce hanging from nails above shop fronts; the same heavy door knockers; the rubbish; the graffiti; the bustle; the smells.
