The next day a dog woke my sister and I up so I went to the bathroom and my sister climbed out of the bathroom window! We ate breakfast which was peach yogurt and cereal. After we finished breakfast we headed down to the beach and my sister and I built a sand castle and made a moat plus a huge wall. The castle somehow survived high tide and it is still on the beach until further notice! Then when my shoes got sandy we went home and had showers. After we got dressed again we played avocado smash and I won! My sister got second and my mom got third. After we finished playing avocado smash we went souvenir shopping and then we wandered up some stairs to a hill. AFter we went up the hill we went up all the stairs that led to the top. When we got up to the top we saw a tower that connected to a castle! It started raining so we went to the gate which was thankfully covered. We had to wait for about ten minutes, but the rain finally stopped. We saw cannons and I thought how dangerous they could be if there was something in them! After we saw the cannons we headed up to one of the turrets and we saw where the soldiers would crouch with bows and arrows through the narrow slits. We also saw where they would fire their cannons at other soldiers! Then we went down into a dungeon where there were some really scary noises and a jail! After we got out of that dungeon we went out through a small tunnel that led back to the entrance! We went up another set of stairs and we found the place where the soldiers would watch the drawbridge! Also up there we found some information about the castle. Some information I learned was that it was made in the years 535-553 A.D. Another fact I learned was that Agropoli stayed in Byzantine hands until 882 AD, when it fell to the Saracens and was converted to a fortified base from which raids were launched against the nearby populations. In 915 AD, the Saracens were defeated and Agropoli returned to the rule of the bishops who, in the meantime, had established their seat at Capaccio. The last fact that I would like to share is that Agropoli subsequently fell under the power of Normans, Swabians, Angevins, and Aragonese. Between 1660 and 1806, Agropoli belonged to the Sanfelice, an aristocratic Neapolitan family that merged with the Delli Monti. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, due to consecutive invasions, its population fell to barely a few hundred.  When we came down the stairs we found a souvenir shop and I got a ship in a bottle saying AGROPOLI.
After we got home, we got in the car and went to a pizzeria and I had a pizza with fries and sausage and I ate ⅞ pieces of the pizza. The reason I didn’t eat the last piece was because the server brought out a huge tomahawk steak that the whole family had to group together and eat it all. The server packaged up my sister and I’s pizzas and we headed back home. We saw fireworks and we heard loud noises so my dad and I went to go check it out and it was a rock party to celebrate Napoli’s win in the Italian cup. It was too loud for me so we went home and went to bed. I rolled over into the middle of the bed and it split apart and I fell though! It hurt a lot! Then my dad helped me out of the hole and I went to bed.
