Hello all! Here I am at a hotel in Rome. In the past few days we have seen the Colisseum, the Roman Forum, The Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, St. Francis Basilica in Assisi, il Duomo in Florence, Michelangelo's David at the Accademia, the Vatican, St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel, Ponte Vecchio...so many things. We've also taken part in gladiator training, a fresco workshop, cooking school (and a competition that my team won!), and a painting class.
Tomorrow we're heading to Pompeii and Sorrento. These are all places I've been before (and you've probably seen in my previous posts) but, in my opinion, the piece de resistance of the trip will be our last day when we go to the Isle of Capri. I'm so looking forward to that!
It's been a great trip so far. The kids have been awesome! Our tour director is a sweetheart and so much fun. We had a couple of mishaps along the way - one girl got awful blisters and had to be taken to the doctor; one chaperone had his wallet lifted; a hotel room was broken into and some items were stolen. Those events were difficult, but everyone has been so positive and we have enjoyed ourselves so much.
Two more days and then we come home. Do I need to tell you I'm not ready to return to reality?
I will post pictures when I'm back in Canada.
Ciao for now!
