After our whirlwind tour of Rome, Greg and I made our way to the Rome train station to meet our friends to go on to Naples and then to the villa we rented.
At the Rome train station, this lovely dog stood at attention. Clearly he was waiting for someone. Isn't he beautiful?
I have to say that I am jealous of the train system in Europe. What a civilized way to travel! I can understand why it is not necessarily cost effective to have such a system in the USA, but I sure wish that weren't so. We got to Naples feeling relaxed and ready for the next phase of our travel. I don't have a lot of pics of Naples itself because we didn't spend any time there, but I did take a few out the window of the van we were traveling in. I kind of like this one because I like the blue and white colors scheme. And the fact that Bar means Bar in Italian as well as English.
And here is my first real glimpse of the whole of Mt. Vesuvius.
As we traveled along the winding narrow streets to the villa, I saw about a gazillions things I wanted to take pics of. I had to satisfy myself with just clicking here and there out of the window, which means I didn't get much of anything worth saving. But I do like this one of the gates.
In the next couple of days, I hope to get to the photos I took of the villa. What a place!
