Rome, Day 2. Our last day in Rome and we spent it in Capri. We booked this tour through Viator, and at first, it seemed like a really great idea. It was another chance for me to see Italy without having to pay for an additional room night. The reviews I read were so positive and seemed like a fun time.

It’s a three-hour bus ride to Naples, then an hour ferry to the island. So a total eight hours there and back. When I mentioned it to my boyfriend, he was some what hesitant. But we read more reviews and for the most part, people said that the commute is long, but overall worth it. That’s all I needed to hear. Andy, decided he would let my mom and I hang out instead.
Rome day 1. Our train to Rome left around 11:30am. Tickets were only $32 and the ride itself is only an hour and a half. Since its so easy to get to, they have many trains running all throughout the day. Andy and I had seats to ourselves this time. Continue reading

It’s also nice having someone explain the history of the artwork. Continue reading
