This picture was taken from the cruise ship as we approached the port at Naples, Italy on our Mediterranean Cruise. This stop was definitely one of the highlights of the cruise. From Naples we took a bus on the Amalfi coast trail, which is so narrow and winding that people have to stop at the curves to let other cars or buses or trucks go past. The view is spectacular. On our way back to the ship, we were able to pay a visit to Pompeii. I've linked to a historical account of the destruction of Pompeii here. It is really interesting to see how the restoration process is going and on how really advanced the city was before it was destroyed. I have some pictures I may share with you some day, but for this Saturday, just enjoy the small lighthouse.
Have a great weekend!
