Today was all about Pompeii. Lots of surprises, but mostly about how vast the site is, and how well some of it is preserved. There are still frescos on some of the interior walls of homes. I also did not know it was a city of relatively wealthy families. Plenty of 2- and 3-bedroom houses with interior courtyards! There's a fairly well preserved brothel including frescos on the wall of "the menu." And phalic directional signs. There's a museum in Naples of the many artifacts from the site, but we'll have to catch that next time.

On the way we visited a cameo producer.

Back home on the boat for dinner and lattes.

All the day's photos are here.
