Kimberly will lead a group of whoever wants to go, to shop some of the smaller boutique stores and souvenir shops, sit and enjoy a relaxing cappuccino while watching the people pass by, and take a moment to remember all that we've seen so far.
Monday, August 8 : In the morning, we'll board a deluxe motorcoach for a full day trip to ancient Pompeii, famously destroyed during a volcanic eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD. A fully guided tour of this well-preserved site will give us a sense of how women in the ancient world really lived. We'll return to our hotel in Rome this evening and have dinner in the city.
Tuesday, August 9 : Today, we'll have another bigger walking day, with a walking tour of Navona Square, the Pantheon, and the Trevi fountain.

The afternoon is free for last souvenir shopping and some rest after the walking tour.
Wednesday, August 10 : We'll board the bus again today to take a day trip to visit the ancient city on the water: Ostia Antica. We'll connect the dots with all the things we've seen along the way and have final moments together before returning to our hotel in Rome.
