This week we reach another milestone; edition 300 of “Where in the World…” and to mark the occasion there is a prize. More of that later.
Last week the distorted city was a tricky one. There were no obvious iconic buildings to identify the city. However, the mountain behind the city was a good clue if you could identify it. A few readers managed to identify the mountain as Vesuvius, the volcano which erupted and buried the city of Pompeii and Heraculeum. Obviously, the distorted photograph was neither of these. It is the modern city of Naples.
Several readers identified the mountain as a volcano and even had the right country. Cities in Sicily were a popular choice as Mount Etna often dominates the Sicilian skyline. Congratulations, however, go to Jackie (@JackiesJourneys) and Davide (@travelling_dave) the only two who managed to identify Mount Vesuvius and then the city.
This week should be a little easier as the distorted image is a cityscape with an iconic structure or two and no mountains to identify.
