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.

... lay forgotten for more then 1500 years. My favourite old site so far! Probably because it is the most intact & preserved by the ash & mud. The ruins are still being excavated today- buildings, spas, brothels, shops, theatres, artwork, mummified bodies etc... You could spend all day exploring this city. We were only there for a couple of hours. Would definitely go back here, fascinating place. The Romans were ...
... or reject stock. Eventually I came to the castle and from here headed along the port and up to the square, this really was impressive, and really pretty at night. The square was quite empty except for a police car with its blue light on in the middle that really ruined my night shot of the lights.
Around this area are the shops selling the legal products and brands. I had a look around and then headed back to the hostel grabbing some street pizza on the way back. ...
Spent the day today at Pompeii. It was even better than either of us were expecting. The place is huge! We walked for 6 hours but still didn't managed to see everything. It really was an entire city and being at the base of Vesuvius must have been terrifying when the volcano erupted. A few grisly scenes of how people ...
... astronomer Joseph Jérôme de Lalande, impressed with the prince's knowledge and personality, commented that he “was not an academic, but an entire academy.”
However the sculpture of a dying Christ reclining on a bed and pillows under a veil, all apparently hewn from the one marble block elicits wonder and awe. How did sculptor Giuseppe Sammartino (1720-1793) create the illusion of a transparent veil in marble through which the man's veins, crucifixion ...
... in Naples. Well, when I arrived at Roma Termini to buy my seat reservation at 9:45, I discovered that the website was wrong and there was no 10:29 train, there was a 10:18 and an 11:00. I made every effort to make the 10:18 train, but the line to buy seat reservations (as a note, I have a rail pass, but Italy requires seat reservations for its trains between major cities) took forever and I got to the ticket counter at 10:20 so I was forced to take ...
