I forgot to mention that while we were in Rome, we took a day trip to Naples & Pompeii and saw Mt. Vesuvius. It was really neat to see all of the remains that have been found. We were talking about how it was amazing that we could come back even a year from now and see different things because they are constantly excavating parts of it. Naples was a lot bigger than we both had imagined - maybe one day we will go there because it is absolutely gorgeous!
Today we are finishing our tour through Florence (the afternoon part that we had to miss yesterday because of changing hotels). Should be exciting! We have been so lucky to have good weather, especially here in Italy. Clear blue skies and warm!
Take care! XOXO
