Naples and Pompeii

Day 3 in Italy had us up early (5am) to catch the 6:30am train to Naples. (I haven’t mentioned that we had 6 adults on our trip and only 1 bathroom.)

Sam wasted no time getting comfortable on the train.

We arrived in Naples and took a quick detour out of the train station in search of breakfast.  We settled on McDonald’s.  It’s kind of fun to see what’s on a McDonald’s menu in foreign countries.

After breakfast we grabbed coffee.  I loved that coffee was everywhere.  The best coffee I had was in Naples.  It was probably the best because it was made with love.

After coffee we headed back to the station to catch the train to Pompeii.  I had no idea it was such a bustling city in it’s heyday.  One more time Rick Steves was our guide.

We left Pompeii and headed back to Naples.  I don’t know if you can tell in the pictures of Pompeii, but it was drizzly and cold, so by the time we were back to Naples 1/2 our group (me, Sam, and Esther) were ready to sit in a cafe and have some coffee and snacks and wine.  (I probably only had wine and some snacks.)  We spent an hour (maybe two) talking.  The other 1/2 of the group were busying themselves in the museum across from the cafe.

We ate dinner and caught the train back to Rome.
