Naples, Herculaneum and SuperMario (not the video game character)

Hello everybody,

Its been a really long day and instead of giving you a longwinded essay of what we did today, we’ve decided to save ourselves (and you) the trouble and just give you the highlights. By way of a brief overview, we visited the excavated ruins of Herculaneum with our tour guide Mario and proceeded onto the Archaeological museum located in Naples which exhibited preserved items from the remains of both Pompeii and Herculaneum. But here are the best things:

– (Super) Mario the infamous tour guide that showed us around the ancient ruins of Herculaneum, he was slow off the mark but loved by all


– Kenn and Finn (2 self-proclaimed alpha males) getting cornered by numerous Italian women + a confused Italian gentleman


– Everyone exhausted but happy in front of the archaeological museum located in Naples


– A part of the archaeological museum that everyone found interesting to say the least  . . . .


– Mr Chambers and the latin boys flaunting their supposed translation skills


– Mr Chambers content after parading his latin prowess


– The boys engaging in a discussion about Hercules in the archaeological museum in Naples


– Observing the some 300 skeletons found in the boat sheds where people hid during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, it was a rare treat to see these skeletons on public display


– Walking through the semi-preserved  homes of Herculaneum that were buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD
