Today is the visit to Pompei, and although I am excited to see the excavated city, I am going to miss using the pool. We take in the bay of Napoli and Vesuvius again while we eat breakfast, as the eating area overlooks both the pool and the bay. Upon reflection, we think that one more day here and one less in Rome would have been a better mix.
We pack up and head for the Circumvesuviana train, just barely making the 9:37am train that ...

We also tried the metro & got the hang of the tickets etc. also tried the local tourist attraction restaurant for pizza, beer & wine. Then back to the hotel for a well earned ...

But surprisingly, lava never touched Pompeii... only soot and ashes. It was the toxic gasses that were released that killed the people.
