After a one day delay, New York City's first family finally made it to Rome for the first leg of their Italian vacation. Would you like to know about the first few hours of their trip in painstakingly pointless detail?

The mayor and his family had literally just spent eight hours trapped in a metal tube over the Atlantic Ocean, but how did they feel about it? What will it mean for their legacy? The Paper of Record has the crucial account of those tense, jet-lagged minutes at the airport:

The mayor offered a few thoughts. Eight hours in a coach-class seat, Mr. de Blasio reported, had been surprisingly comfortable, his 6-foot-6 frame aside.

“I give our European competitors at Airbus credit,” the mayor said, although his long-limbed teenage son, Dante, standing behind his father, seemed to disagree, silently and strenuously shaking his head.

An hour into the trip and they're already fighting? #DeBlasiosItaly

Not to be outdone, the Wall Street Journal has the #scoop on what some political consultants are already deeming First Lady Chirlane McCray's "Pabulum Problem."

"This is an amazing moment for our family to experience this together and it's something we've waited for years to do," said Mr. de Blasio, noting there is a family dinner scheduled for Sunday night.

Ms. McCray, when asked what she was excited about doing in Italy, spoke a line in Italian and then translated it to English. "I look forward to eating," she said with a big smile.

Eating! Is that all she thinks Italy is good for? With three mayoral aides traveling with the First Family, you'd think the $13,000 we're paying for their travel expenses would buy savvier optics.

Maybe we wouldn't need round-the-clock European Vacation updates if the mayor didn't choose to make this a quasi-official trip. On Sunday he met with Rome's mayor, Ignazio Marino. Tomorrow, he'll meet with the Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Federica Mogherini, and former Integration Minister Cécile Kyenge.

In a completely unrelated story, a recent Pew study found that the number of reporters and resources assigned to covering state legislatures has dropped drastically since 2003.
