TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Colombo Naples
I stayed at Hotel Colombo for 2 nights over the easter weekend. I found it to be a charming hotel in a very convenient location near markets and near the main station.
The neighborhood was bustling with activity that you find common throughout the city. Located only a short walk down a main shopping street from the harbor and embarkation ports to Capri, Ischia and other places.
There are many late night markets, pubs and restaurants nearby and it is an easy point to get around the city.
In addition, the staff are friendly and eager to help set you off on an adventure, be it a tour of the Amalfi coast or where to eat in Naples.
A lovely stay was had.

... day again Pompeii so we decided on a quick meal and the off to bed. We, however, ended up at a place that specialises in Buffalo! Laura went the safe option of Pasta with Buffalo mince where as I went the steak! It has an interesting smell and a different kind of taste but was tender and delizioso! If you managed to read all that and are still reading I congratulate you on your persistence! Next stop Florence and Cinque ...
... though, there is beauty and the town has a great buzz about it. There is spirit here: "take us or leave us". Really interesting. After the museum, we headed out for some lunch and a meander around the historic centre of town. Picked up some wifi at lunch (the wifi in the flat is not working) and managed to make contact with our host in Sicily. Lunch was some falafel wraps which was a nice change from pasta or pizza. The old centre is a maze of narrow streets, ...
... fiat is manual so naturally we attempt to change gears with the left hand, except there is a door, not the gears. Everything is opposite but I was very proud of both of us this time, we kept our cool towards each other and supported instead of freaked. Was a good 2 hour drive to Pompeii down the Autostrada, and we understood the road a bit better this time, although Steve drove like a Nana instead on a maniac.
Made it ...
It had rained overnight and the morning was dull and overcast. We were told to bring umbrellas and waterproofs. It was a 3 hour drive to Mt Vesuvius, but we had a half hour toilet stop after about 2 hours. We are traveling on the Autostrada, a toll road to Naples. The weather improves a little. Before we know it we are climbing a very steep and narrow road up Mt Vesuvius. We are going to within 450 meters of the top. From there you have to walk ...
On the sea day prior to arrival in the Italian holiday resort of Sorrento, I have an update on the geriatric thug who assaulted one of the excursion team. After the assault, Justine reported the incident and the culprit, who was of French nationality, was offloaded in Athens. Apparently he had already had a fracas with his cabin steward accusing him of trying to steal his luggage (J'accuse, Monsieur le Frog) and also had the Italian hostess pinned up against the bulkhead ...
