I was really looking forward to visiting Pompeii because I had been fascinated with it ever since Morgan was little and we read a book about it. I didn't know what to expect so it was really interesting.
This is what it looked like entering the city, because it actually is a whole city. We only saw a small part of it in the two hours we were there.
After Pompeii, Alberto, or "James Bond", drove us to an overlook that I think was supposed to be a scenic view. It must have been a little foggy because I don't think we saw much of anything.
Here is a closer view of some of the residences.
Just getting ready to board the ferry back to our cruise ship.
Now it was time to say goodbye to Alberto, whom we had grown quite fond of. He kissed all the ladies on both cheeks, probably hoping for a bigger tip.
I had less fond feelings of him once we figured out he told us to sit on the wrong side of the ferry. He told us, in fact he really emphasized, that the best view is on the left, where we could see the island of Capri (which we never did see). Not so, the best view all the way home was on the right side of the ferry, where you could enjoy the whole Amalfi coast. I think he was in cahoots with the ferry operator, so they would have enough people on each side to balance out the ferry. Oh well.
Even that couldn't dampen my spirits because the next day we got to go to Rome!
