After taking you through the first third of our amazing Adventures by Disney trip to Italy and the Amalfi Coast, I\’m ready to tell you about the next part of our vacation!
Pompeii We woke up and packed up our room and set our luggage out in the hallway. Tinkerbell collected them while we had breakfast at the hotel. Then we boarded our motor coach to Pompeii. We were departing Sorrento but leaving a little piece of our hearts there; we will be back for sure.
It took us about an hour to get from Sorrento to the town of Pompeii. We knew today would be hot, but the ABD guides always had waters to hand out throughout the entire vacation. They also had anything and everything you might have forgotten or would ever need on a trip. It was so wonderful! Also, most of Italy\’s bathrooms in public areas cost money, but while you are with ABD guides, Disney pays for it! Michael was also with us on this adventure, and he did an amazing job of letting us see everything there was to see in this historical site. Here we also received our fourth pin to add to our collection.
The next morning, we had a late start and slept in a little. We headed to breakfast at the hotel which was even better than the last hotel–not sure how because both were great! This day we did a walking tour of Florence. We had a new guide here to talk to our group on our headsets. These headsets were provided for the whole trip and called you Whisperers. She took us to Uffizi Museum to see works of art by Michelangelo and all the greats. This was about a 2-hour tour, and while we were with the new guide, our ABD guides took the Jr Adventurers to do a scavenger hunt throughout the museum. We got our fifth pin of our collection. We then left and walked over to the Academia to see Michelangelo’s sculpture, David. After our walking tour, Disney treated us to the best gelato EVER with homemade cones. We headed back to our hotel to rest for a bit and get ready for a night out on our own. Marcello made our reservations to the restaurant. Again, an incredible meal. On the way, we stopped at a carousel in town for Henry to ride. Very magical.
We still have three days left in Italy, but I\’ll save the rest for next week!
