This half term I went to Rome and the bay of Naples with school. It was lots of fun and a good time was had by most people.

We began the week in Rome. On the saturday we arrived at our hotel, which turned out to be a convent!

That day we went to see the Pantheon. It was interesting because I had never seen it before. The next morning we changed hotels to a different one round the corner. That day, Sunday, we went to the Palintine hill, the Colosseum and the Roman Forum.

The next day we went to see a villia, and then on to Sorrento. The veiw of our balcony in Sorrento was amazing, and we spent the rest of the day relaxing in our hotel.

On the Friday we went to Pompeii. I thought it was really amazing to see this town so like what it would have looked like in Roman times.
