Naples: It was the best of cities, it was the worst of cities. Well ... it wasn't really the best of cities.
Hello again, Blogonauts!
On Saturday the express train carried our merry band from Rome to Naples. More than anything else, I was struck the mountainous scenery along the way.
And once we lugged ourselves from the …
... us down so we waited in the rain until they arrived. Then we rode down the mountain to find our bus. There was one family from our group that had been held at the top because of the storm so the rest of us waited at the transfer point for them.
Then, one we were all together we headed to lunch at a vineyard where we were served breads, dry sausage, cheese, spaghetti and pastiera.

Although this hotel certainly isn't the Ritz, I was definitely pleased with my experience. The staff was so accommodating and helpful and everyone spoke English very well.
