Hello from Naples, Italy!!!!! We are docked here from 7am-7pm. From 7:30am-about 3pm I have a planned excursion through the cruise line. We are hiking part of Mout Vesuvius and getting a tour of Pompeii. After that we get dropped back off at the ship where we will leave in search of pizza!!!! Gotta have pizza in Naples, I think its the law, or like a commandment.
Gathering before the excursion.
Great view from the top! Well not even the top yet.
A view of the crater…..there was some steam coming out hmmmmm
Pompeii!!!! It was huge!!! Way bigger than I thought it would be.
I was really suprised by the ingenuity of people that far back, you could tell which were shops and which were houses. The shops had little groves in the doors where gates were pulled across. There will little pieces of marble in the roads and floors to reflect lamplight at night. It was amazing all the things they came up with.
There are some amazing details that have survived this whole time. These sculptures were amaziny still in tact.
Look at the wall frescoes and that fountain!
Best gelato to date! I got coffee flavor and it was to die for!!!
We stumbled upon a giant piazza while walking around. That happens in Italy, you just stumble upon amazing sights around any corner.
Tomorrow a slow, relaxing day in Sicily!
