Description and photos of a trip by Janice and Larry Hatt to Rome, Italy; a cruice on the MS Braemar to eastern Mediterranean ports followed by a motor trip to Pompeii and the Amalfi coast of southern Italy.
The Acropolis was as amazing as we could have hoped. Pictures, of course, don't do it justice. The Parthenon is covered on one side with scaffolding because of restoration work, but the rest is visible. Our tour of Athens included the changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown soldier - Quite a show - they goose-step and more, and have a very tightly - chloreographed routine. Back at the ship we went on deck to enjoy the leaving-port show, then off to various activities. Selected Photos of Athens
