Bethany's adventure in Italy


19 March 2017

We shopped in the afternoon and then made a quick stop at Olympic Stadium. We have our last meal together and then we head to the airport for a 6:30 am flight to Munich for our first leg of the journey home. It has been a complete blast!
Pictures from our trip to the Acropolis. You are on top of the world up there!

We attended a Greek Evening experience last night. The kids had a great time dancing to Greek music and some older American songs and we enjoyed the authentic Greek food.
We have arrived in Athens. We have a free afternoon and then a Greek Evening experience.
We visited the ancient ruins of Delphi today. The city dates back to 8th century BC!

We left beautiful Capri and headed to Sorrento. Having a wonderful dinner . Cant wait to see our views tomorrow morning because it fells like we drove to the top of the world. Capri was beautiful and had lots of great shops. All but one person on our bus bought something today.
The Island Capri is gorgeous!!!!! Very hilly as you can imagine. We are eating lunch in AnaCapri at the top of the Island.

Taking a break at Trevi Fountain. It isvery crowded here. Huge tourist place.
Roman Forum and Coloseum were AMAZING. We had an awesome guide who told us so much about the language, history and architecture. Wow. To walk among the streets of ancient Rome.....

It was a long day with a lot of walking. We left at 7:50 am and returned at 10:30 pm. The Vatican was fascinating. The Sistine Chapel was amazing and St. Peter's Basillica was amazing! We also went to another very fancy Catholic church in the city. They are all so opulent! Then we walked around and shopped and ate lunch and Gelato. Dinner was pizza at a local place. If that was true Italian pizza I will stick to American style. Not overly impressed.

We arrived at our hotel. It is in the countryside overlooking a lake. More pics tomorrow. We passed the Pope's summer palace on the way here. Honestly I found Rome to be very trashy with grafitti and trash all around. We will see a lot more of it tomorrow, including the Vatican.
Roman Pantheon: rebuilt in 2nd Century!
