Finally, Pompeii! Travis and I really looked forward to this day. We had an early morning and around a 1 hour drive from the port. The first thing we did when we got there was go to a Cellini Factory while our tour guide went and got our Pompeii tickets. They would make jewelry and other things out of shells. We really weren’t that interested in it. We just wanted to get into the archeological site.
We spent around 2 1/2 hours in Pompeii and it was very crowded. We didn’t even see a quarter of the site. We will definitely be going back!
So amazing! The place is massive! That is only about 1/3 of the pictures we took. Let me know if you want to see more (that goes for all the locations, I’m only putting up a portion of what we have).
We also got to sample some limoncello and shop around for a little while. Pompeii had some of the biggest lemons!
Once we took the bus back to the port, we decided to explore Salerno some (the town we were docked in). It was a Sunday, so the town was very sleepy. It was very relaxing and gave us a good feeling for how life in Italy really is. However, there was a museum Travis wanted to go to, but it was closed. We mostly walked along the pier.
That night, the show was a comedian/magician named Neal Austin. Travis’ least favorite type of performance is magic and even he enjoyed himself!
Then we went to the white party (even though neither of us brought a white outfit) where they played 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s music. We stayed for 60s and 70s. We wish they would send information about what theme nights/parties are going to be on board BEFORE we get there. I would have packed more according outfits.
For the most part, the ship had really bad movie selections. However, they were playing Delivery Man with Vince Vaughn that night, which appeared to be the best movie they had to offer, so we decided to watch it. I think Vince Vaughn is pretty funny, but Travis isn’t a fan. Overall, the movie was pretty funny. It would be worth a redbox.
Once again, we wanted to rest up for our huge day in Rome tomorrow!
