On a bitterly cold December 15th, we took the train from Roma Termini to Naples and then to Pompeii.

The kids were in awe of the volcano looming above us

 Vesuvius in the background

The architecture was unexpectedly inspiring, even in its' ruined state; the stately thermal baths and the magnificant courtyard homes:

We skipped through the ruined streets in the cold....

visited the  beautiful amphitheater and piazzas:

 goggled the enormous Neapolitan lemons at the entry gates...

...amd then trained it all the way back home to Rome again in time for dinner.
An amazing day.
