In the time since I’ve last logged on, we’ve done Rome in a sixth of a day (or at least as much as one can in four hours: Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Tomb on the Unknown Soldier, Colisseum and a lotta walking in between followed by a semi-private tour of the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel), then it was along the Amalfi coast first to Sorrento for shuttles to the ruins of Pompeii then back south to the picturesque village of Positano before coming back up to Sorrento for the tender back to the ship.

Right now we’ve just pulled in to the port of Ajaccio and I’m looking out across the harbor to the magnificently rugged island of Corsica for some more daytripping that we’ll be departing for in about an hour. So until next time, here’s some low-rezzies of the interior ceiling of the Pantheon, a jawdropping hallway within the vast fresco map room of the Vatican Museum, a fountain within the ruins of Pompeii, and a shot looking down upon the coastal town of Positano.

Ciao!
