The waterfront in Naples
Had a four day weekend, so I took a day trip to Naples and the ruins of Pompeii. I had my hotel set it up. It was basically a bus tour. The bus picked me up at the hotel and took me to a meeting point, where I met with other people going on the tour. We then got on another bus and headed for Naples. The drive is about 2 and half hours from Rome. We stopped after 1 hour and 20 minutes of driving, so everyone could go to the restroom or just stretch their legs. Once we got to Naples, the bus driver drove around the city for about a half hour. He stopped once at the harbor so everyone could get out and take pictures. Naples is a city that pretty much sits right on the water, which makes the scenery very beautiful.

After taking a few pictures in Naples, we then headed to a restaurant to have lunch. I don't remember the name of the restaurant, but the food wasn't bad. During lunch, I had some good conversation with other travelers. Conversating with travelers is one the highlights of travel. You get to hear many cool stories about all the places they've been to and all cool the places that they're going to next. So, after lunch we headed to see the ancient city of Pompeii. In general Pompeii isn't very impressive. But after you put the age of the ruins into context(over 2500years old), the site progressively becomes more and more amazing. Plus the place is huge. Seriously It's really is like an ancient city. One day is definitely not enough to look the whole site over. Anyway, after a few hours of sight-seeing at the ruins, we got back on the bus and began a nice relaxing ride back home to Rome. So, next week I am looking to take a Day Trip to Florence
