Day 1-Mt Vesuvio-2011

Page history last edited by David Guarnieri 13 years, 2 months ago

After an early start we had a foggy ride down to Mt. Vesuvio. During the ride we watched "Journey to the Center of the Earth" and part of the "The Parent Trap". We were all happy to see the sun come out when we reached the volcano. 


After a quick lunch at the base of the mountain and some shopping, we started our hike. Already above the clouds we had spectacular views of the crater and an informative presentation by a local guide. After more shopping (the kids love to shop!) we hired a guide to take us around the entire crater. The children got to put their hands in steaming vents and were treated to views of Ischia and the Bay of Napoli.


At 3:00 pm we started our descent and made it back to the bus (after a bit more shopping!). 


We are now at the lovely Hotel Forum freshening up for dinner, organizing our rooms and writing in our journals about the day. Dinner is at 7:30 pm. After we will play games, have a room visiting period and then off to bed. WE have a busy day tomorrow.
