Mike is stationed in Naples, and Christi and the kids are along for the adventure this time.  Naples is a gritty, crumbling, magical city.  I love it.  And we traveled around the impossibly lovely countryside — up and down the Amalfi coast, and right up to the top of Mt. Vesuvius.

Postcards from Italy:

Christmas Alley

Naples Below

Rome: Why would we need a map?

Vesuvius and Vinyards

Paestum and Opplontis

Definitely Atlantis
