Travel Blogs from Naples
Well, here it is Saturday morning in the lively city of Naples. I was awoken by the sounds of bells from the nearby church and then the bustling of the street market below my window. It was about 8:30 and it was fine for me to lay in bed for a bit before getting in the shower and preparing for the day ahead.
At right around 9:00 I forced …
Naples. What can be said? I have been in Italy for several years now, only 2 hours by train and easily accessed to Naples. The allure has been enhanced by the fact that I have never been able to squeeze out time to go there. Well, my golden chance has arrived and I am on my way to spend my Easter weekend in the infamous harbor city of Napoli.
... I’ve now become knowledgeable enough about the town to show my parents a different section of Sorrento each night, recommend the best eateries in town, and only make one or two mistakes in my tour-guiding along the way.
The first night we came back from Florence, for example, I showed them to their hotel- a lovely B&B in which they raved about the croissant and eggs for breakfast each morning- we had ...
We arrive in Naples Railway Station at 2.20pm......we need to get on the last ferry to Ischia Island which leaves at 3.10pm.......we get to the bus station but no sign of the bus we need...damn, we're going to have to take a taxi to the port if we're going to make it. I'm loathe to use Taxis as they're expensive...but when needs be. We hop in the cab and promptly enter Death Race 2000.

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.
