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.)
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.
