Day 14 - Naples and Pompeii

Our trip comes to an end!

Well our trip to Italy entered its final day and we took a day trip to Naples for a brief walking tour of the city, lunch and then on to Pompeii to visit the city destroyed and preserved by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. It was weird to walk through the ruins and see parts of the ancient city preserved so well that you can still see frescos painted on the walls in houses and the remains of tables in houses, wells in the floors and a Roman Bathhouse preserved as examples of the lives lived more than 2,000 years ago.

It was a trip I'll remember for the rest of my life. It was filled with so many beautiful sights, gorgeous scenery and the chance to make new friends. A special thanks to Bob Spidel who put this trip together for us and served as an excellent tour guide the whole trip. He chauffeured us around for most of the trip city to city, served as tour guide and patiently waited as the women in the group shopped in just about every store they passed!

Thanks for all you did Bob!
