Well it's definitely getting hotter. As we arrived in Civitavecchia, you could immediately tell once outside that the temperature was going up. If you weren’t on a tour, the ship provided a bus to take you to the terminal. They had a note in the nightly handout that said the busses ran every 30 minutes so we decided that we’d walk to the terminal. Major mistake.

Not really ...
... on the train we were supposed to get on. We eventually made it to CT and it was an unbelievable place. All the villages are built on top of these cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean and there is a walkway that goes in between all of them. The walk between the villages would probably take you a half a day or so to walk but it is probably about as beautiful a walk as you could ever do with this pathway wrapping around the side of a cliff next to ...
