{outfit} Day Trip to Pompeii

On our second day we took a day trip to Pompeii. It was quite the journey getting there. Our train from Rome to Naples was fine, but then it was time to take the metro to Pompeii. There was supposed to be a train 10 minutes after we arrived but we stood on a hot, full platform for an HOUR before the right train came. It was insanity. That meant we got a bit of a later start than we wanted (we got up at 6:30am hoping to get to Pompeii a little after 9 but that didn't happen.)

We still made it to all the places we wanted to see and made it to our train back to Rome a couple hours before it was set to leave. Then THAT train was delayed by an hour so we got back to Rome quite late and had dinner around 11pm. But when in Rome, right? Funnily enough, this was one of Christian's favorite meals and we just happened upon the spot since it was close to our airbnb. I'll share where we ate in the guide next week!

  1. That's such a beautiful top and I'm glad you still managed to have a fun day even if the trains did mess up your plans a little!

    Hope that you are having a great week :)

  2. Were you able to visit Herculaneum as well? I've always wanted to visit there - I'm glad you made it to Pompeii with all the train drama.

    1. We didn't. With all the train issues I didn't want to risk anything else, haha!

  3. Even with your best laid plans, when you are at the mercy of public transportation you never know what might happen. At least you were still able to make the most of the day, and I'm sure it will always be a memorable one!

  4. Oh wow it seems like getting there was quite a trip!
    All I recall from Pompeii besides the ruins is the scorching sun. It was so hot I thought I was going to pass out.
