Hotel Dukes Palace, Belgium

On a train I passed the border which separated The Netherlands and Belgium. After the train ride I took a taxi, which was a shorter ride in a quainter space.

I arrived in Brugge in almost no time at all. Brugge looked like the setting in a fairytale and I happily got lost in it.

Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii Tour

Touring Pompeii with Viator

Early morning in Rome, I met with the group and travelled to Pompeii. There was one stop along the way, which I used as time to buy chocolate. The day was guided with amazing storytellers.

After exploring Pompeii, it was time for pizza in Naples; the essential for climbing up Mount Vesuvius. How far you climbed up Mount Vesuvius was your choice, which made the tour suitable for all age groups.
