TY Rome Diary : Day 2 2018

TY Rome Diary : Day 2 2018
On the second day of our time trip to Rome we set off on our next adventure heading for Mt. Vesuvius and Pompeii. The day started off with a three hour bus drive but we were all excited and were blaring the song Pompeii to sing along to. Along the way we had a pit stop to stretch our legs and get some nice cooling ice cream and continued our journey.
When we were almost there we changed to three smaller buses as our buses were too big for the roads. We were winding up to the top of Mount Vesuvius and finally we got to get out and climb to the top. Once we got to the top we all got a few photos by the crater. The view both of the crater and the city below were phenomenal. We collected souvenirs on the way down in the beautiful stalls. As we reached the bottom again we loaded ourselves back on the buses.
We then headed off for lunch in a restaurant beside Pompeii. We enjoyed our delicious Italian meal before getting to Pompeii where we met our tour guide and set off on an unique experience of Pompeii. As we went back in time through the streets of ancient Pompeii. We all had an amazing time and will all agree this has been the best aspect of our trip so far.
