Due to my interest in the TV show "Spartacus", I just had to stop in Capua on the way to Naples. There is the second largest Roman amphitheater behind the Colosseum, and it is only 20 miles north of Naples, so why not? The route from Rome took me along ...

Today we headed off to Venice. It probably wasn't one of our better days - nobody had slept well so we were all pretty grumpy to start with. Our train was delayed by 1 1/2 hours so that was 1 1/2 hours less we had to do things. Isaac forgot to restock ...
