Another big day as they all are, but wouldn't have it any other way.
Leave Rome and head to Bay of Naples, passing the Abbey of Monte Cassino. We take a guided tour through the excavations of Pompeii. Very impressive, our guide Enzo was very entertaining and of course informative. Dinner in the hotel tonight.
