... in the hostel for a week as a "holiday". She feels like Naples is "her" city, and so knows it well and is able to reccomend where to go and what to see as a local but from a tourist point of view.
Today was my last full day, not just in Naples, but in Italy as a whole, so I decided to make the most of the food while I could (planning to return to the uk at least 10kg heavier!). I had a long walk uphill and got some good views over the city. I stopped by a pastry ...
... and as the second flare, blue this time, goes off, they take a few steps forward, while we leave the square behind and leave them to their demonstration, hoping the parade won’t follow us through the streets. After about twenty metres along the road, past a few onlookers, the day is as normal. There is no attention paid to the square at all and we are once again in an old city full of living history and people telling us they have the best prices, come and see!
... took in everything we could. We had been there for hours! Unrestricted hours.. it felt nice to not have to rush off anywhere. We could explore the ruins at our own pace - we liked that.
But we felt like we had accomplished a lot and seen all there was to see from the map's point of view. So we thought we could head to Herculaneum now.
All we had to do was head back to the station - jump on the metro and get off at Ercolano. And that we did. We got off ...
... one to Grotta Azzura (blue caves) or a trip around the island for sight seeing from the water. There are also a lot of speciality shops around, with various upmarket labels. H found the most gorgeous profumery that makes their own perfumes and lemoncello is very big here also, bugger that we both love that stuff. Absolutely great meandering along narrow walkways/ steps with not a clue what's around the corner. Heaps of various nationality tour groups ...
... from her hand gestures. Even though we had no idea what she was saying, she was quite charming and apparently very funny because she kept laughing at all the hilarious things she was saying. We just followed suit and laughed when she laughed and shook our heads yes or no as we felt prompted to. We all were giggling so hard standing there. It was quite comical. Luckily a man who spoke English came up behind us half way through and acted as the interpreter. About 20 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Correra 241 Naples
in april we stayed 4 nights in this hotel. we arrived by car and we could find the street where the hotel was located quite easily. it turned out to be an one-way road and the housenumbers started with 180-178-176 etc. we thought that the hotel was higher so at the end of the road we tried to find our way back. this was very difficult in all the little streets. at a certain moment we had to stop and at that moment a scooter hit our outside mirror. my husband turned down his window to put the mirror allright. at the moment he reached out someone took his arm and tried to steal his watch! it was a frightening experiende. no one came to help us. fortunately my husband managed to pull his arm back in the car again and the robbers didn't get his watch but it was broken and we were shaking.
Such nice staff that are so helpful. Went to everywhere in 6 days stay so easily with piazza Dante round the corner and a lovely walk down via toledo to all the shops and markets. Very busy but such an amazing place.Walked up via toledo to the museo nazionale to see everything from pompeii the day before we went to pompeii. Pompeii was a whole day. Then went on same train line Circumvesuviana, to ercolano where you can take a little bus for 10 euros there and back, to mount versuvius, you pay about 6 euros when you get there to walk up the rest of the way but so worth it. when we got back to station, walked down from station to herculanium. also visited botanical gardens, royal palace, castel nuovo,castel sant'elmo, san martino and castel dell'ovo. breakfast was lovely. room amazing. Would go back. (i want to go shopping there, bags and shoes!!!).
Following a couple of other TripAdvisor recommendations, we booked into this hotel well-placed in the centre of Naples. Incidentally, do not try to get there from the central station metro by changing onto the Piazza Dante line - you end up walking further in that ghastly subway system than if you just go one stop to Museo-Cavour, walk to the Via Pessina and turn right. Crossing the road is, however, another matter entirely!
A bright surprise!
We arrived at this hotel when dark and after entering the gate on the street we entered the bright reception area with its warm colour scheme which was reflected by the warm friendly and very helpful staff.
Everything is spotlessly clean and bright.
The breakfast delicious and with plenty of variety..great.
Situated in a narrow street it is very close to the old city centre and the metro.
We loved it and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.
My husband and I stayed at Hotel Correra 241 for 2 nights in January 2006. We had planned to be in Naples only for 2 days/1 night, but immediately upon seeing the sparklingly bright Correra 241...and Naples...we decided to stay another night and day. We would've stayed longer still, but we hadn't brought enough supplies/clothing/etc with us from our vacation base in Rome.
Contrast -naples and hotel correra241-
I stayed in hotel correara241 for 4days in Napoli. first time I saw the city sight, it was too terrible!! So that I thought the hotel might be terrible, either. However, after going through dark street and hotel entrance, how cute it was!! the hotel was too colourful and cute!! the room... was wonderful!! The room was ideal because it was like toy house, pretty, clean, bright. I want to stay in this hotel when I come back to Napoli.
