We've been in Italy for the last 5 days ... here's a bit of a taste ...
Sorrento, Amalfi Coast
Pompeii, near Naples
The Colosseum, Rome
We're lucky enough to have been to Italy a few times before, but it was our first time visiting the Amalfi Coast ... seriously lovely. I could really see myself spending LOTS of time there ~ it was just so beautiful and relaxing. (Side note ~ Naples is not great ~ fly in, pick up a car, drive out!). Pompeii was also amazing ~ I was surprised how intact some of the buildings were ~ still with remains of their frescos. I saw the Pompeii exhibition at Melbourne Museum earlier in the year which was a great primer as the actual site doesn't have many artefacts, just the town itself. It was quite sad to see the poses of the bodies frozen in time by the ash and gas. Rome, as always, does not disappoint. It was great to see the expressions on my parents faces when they saw amazing things like the Colosseum or the Pantheon for the first time ~ priceless. I took a few more pics while I was there and posted them on twitter (via Instagram) incase you're interested.
Have a great weekend! We're off to Barcelona for a couple of days ~ looking forward to it!
