Nice sunrise as we were arriving at Naples, Italy. This is a shot of Mount Vesuvius, near to Naples, and the cause of the destruction of Pompeii.
The Island of Capri, about 7 miles off coast of Naples, Italy.
Another cruise ship arriving before us. In every port we entered, there were cruise ships arriving at around same time.
Oh yes, and there is Gelato Ice Cream everywhere. Definitely a tourist favorite.
My wife having a good laugh with our tour guide, Roberto in Pompeii.
The lemons are almost as big as grapefruits. Just as bitter. They make lemon liquor in this region.
Getting ready to enter the ruins of Pompeii.
The tour took nearly 3 hours. By time we left the ruins we were done. They all start to look the same after awhile. But, it was very interesting and definitely worth the time and money.
A large urn on the outskirts of the village of Pompeii.
The streets in Pompeii are the original cobblestone streets. The 3 large stones were used for the residents of Pompeii to cross the streets during rain as the streets would fill up with water. The spacing was to allow the wheels of the chariots to go through.
Look closely and you will see the ruts in the street that were created by the chariots.
Many columns, of all shapes and sizes still stand in the ruins.
Latin wording still visible in these columns.
