Thursday’s essay is the fifth in a ten-part series about our Mediterranean cruise. (We’re half-way through.) The first essay was entitled, “Cruising is incredibly self-indulgent,” and it served as an introduction to the series. The second essay was called, “Barcelona and the French Riviera (Nice and Eze): Minds Stretched in New Directions.” The third essay was, “Livorno, Civitavecchia, and Tuscania: So much history it boggles the mind.” Last week’s essay was, “The Sistine Chapel, Saint Peter’s, and the Colosseum - Our tour of Rome.” This week, the essay is called, “The Port of Napoli - Our tour of Pompei and our warning about Naples.” The series will cover additional cruise stops in Athens, Istanbul, Santorini and Mikanos (Greece), as well as Venice. The essays will offer a little history, our experiences on the excursions, as well as additional insights and observations.

Share your link. Have you written anything on Mediterranean cruising? Have you visited the port of Napoli, Naples (the city), or Pompei? Do you know someone who has? Can you share some insights about any of your own touring or excursion experiences with readers? What would you like to tell people who want to cruise the Mediterranean? Places to go? Things to see? Any personal information you would like to share with them? Share your link with us. We’ll post it and move traffic in your direction. And, a big “thank you,” in advance, from AndThenSomeWorks.com, for sharing your link.

Thursday's And Then Some Essay preview

The Port of Napoli - Our tour of Pompei and our warning about Naples
by Richard L. Weaver II


Pompeii was a thriving Roman city and standing in the Forum, the center of the old city, you are surrounded by the remains of lavish temples and porticoes. The forum was an open place where all people could gather and nearby were centers of government, places of worship, and markets. As one walks the narrow stone streets, at each intersection there are raised stepping stones that ensured pedestrians could cross without getting their togas wet. Embedded deeply in these stone streets one can still see the deep ruts of the chariots, always pulled by two donkeys.

And Then Some Works - see you Thursday!!
