Today we traveled south past Naples and towards Mount Vesuvius!
Pompeii is the ancient roman city that was frozen in time by a volcanic erruption.The eruption killed everyone in the city and buried it under tons of ash. It is the first UNESCO World heritage Site of our tour.
We had a hilarious guide named Enzo who showed all the sites of historical significance including the brothels, penis statues and red light district. Very informative. Throughout the tour he would ask us “Are you happy?….are you bored?…” it was really endearing.
For lunch I had the most amazing caprese sandwich. It was fresh and flavorful. Bellisimo!
I wish we had a little more time to explore, but we had to continue south towards Sorrento!
