Next port is Civitaveccia - Italy.

We did the excursion Jumping Back Into Eternal Rome

We arrived early in port













I think a Disney cruise is always happier







It was so sunny I got a good shadow picture



I took this on the bus journey to the train station, I have no idea what it was!



We made it to Rome, the train was pretty quick. I liked this bridge



















We were dropped off near the Coleseum, we walked over

Have really enjoyed looking at the photos ... much better IMO than a full blown trippie.

Didn't realise Pompeii was so big .. amazing place.

Long may you continue .. but hurry hurry as I'm impatient!!

Sorry, I will try and do a bit tonight and maybe over the weekend - I might have time tomorrow night but may not!

Thanks for posting, glad you like all the pics! I would have to go back to Pompeii and do a tour with a guide book to see some other areas. To think of it as a thriving city is quite mind blowing!

The Colleseum - it used to all be covered marble!





















Walking towards the entrance



Looking towards the inside as we wait to get in



The orange thing is a scarf on a stick that our tour guide used to guide us!



Looking inside



I think this horse and rider are missing a few parts!



This gives you an idea of the scale













I think it goes down 3 stories below the ground level! They have excavated two now.



You can see where the stairs used to be



The view from 2 stories up



The obligatory pictures - we were there!

The view of the street looking down









Some guys dressed as Romans





A map - you can only go around half of it, see where the red arrow is





They don't look it but these steps up to the second level were really deep - our guide said they used to have slabs on top, probably marble

Super impressive!

I can feel another Disney Med cruise coming on so I can see all this for my self. Time to rob that bank.

Thanks for the great photos.

We got back on the bus and drove to a place near the Trevi Fountain



















Then we got a gelato - yummy!



We walked through Rome seeing various things, we went through a small shopping mall





We didn't get to stop for a coffee and cake!





We walked towards the parliamentary buildings

Right around the corner was the Pantheon, you can just about see it through the gap!











Here is half of it, the other half had scaffold all over it













Inside



















This fountain had a fence around it with plastic windows hence the reflection

This was a famous hotel





We then walked even more (we did tons of walking this day) to the restaurant for lunch which was included in the tour













It looked like they were filming something





This is the restaurant, we all sat inside







The table was already set







Delicious lasagne



Tiramisu, it's a close up because I'd already taken a bite!

I took this when we were waiting for the bus to come



Outside St Peter's Basillica





This is just after security, we had to be careful not to take pictures of the security area





A Swiss Guard







Looking back towards the square















On the floor here were marks to show the length of other Cathedrals around world, St Paul's Cathedral in London was the largest - none are bigger than St Peter's Basillica

There were tunnels underneath the floor and you could see down through these grates





I loved the way the light came through









You can actually go up here, there is a walkway



Our guide explained these were mosaics not paintings so you can use flash on them





This is the marker for St Paul's Cathedral







Back outside again





The balcony in the middle is the one the Pope comes out onto



We were given some time to shop and then headed back to the bus, then the train station.

On the train they gave us all water and a snack - this name made us laugh!
