In 2018 we got to go on a Mediterranean cruise as a Scentsy incentive trip and one of the cruise ports was Naples, Italy. The city of Naples wasn’t where we wanted to sightsee though so 8 of us booked a private tour of the Amalfi coast and Pompeii. I shared about the first half of our day in another post and wanted to share about visiting Pompeii in its own post. It’s a lot of pictures but it’s Pompeii. You can’t adequately describe it without lots of pics. 😉
As a “retired” homeschooling mom and someone extremely interested in geography and history, can I just say that visiting Pompeii was one of the most incredible experiences ever! It was so amazing to see it all and to see how much work the archaeologists have done to uncover all of this. It’s amazing to me just how much is still there and still intact. We had a tour guide that took us through the city and explained things to us and I very much enjoyed all that she had to tell us and all the stories she shared.
Take a look at all the amazing things we saw:
We spent at least a couple of hours here, walking around and seeing a lot of the city, but there was still so much more to see. I could have spent a few days here probably. ha! Even the grounds around it were pretty with beautiful umbrella trees and flowers. If you find yourself in western Italy, I definitely recommend visiting Pompeii!
