This week I’m on the island of Ischia, relaxing after completing a tour called “Five Days in Naples.” I planned each day to tell a different story of the city’s 3,000-year-old history, including trips to Herculaneum and Baia. But then the usually temperate days of early October turned to rain. On the first day of the tour, the rain was so dramatic that schools in Naples were closed due to flooding and lightning hit an airplane at the airport. Months of meticulous planning went down the drain.
I escaped that wild weather and lucked into clear sunny days in Venice. My pals that were meeting me had to travel from Capri and they had a harrowing journey!
This is an incredible itinerary! I saw those jewels here in Rome many years ago. They are just my kind of bling.
