Travel Blogs from Naples
15th - 16th August
We caught the late train from Rome to Naples so we didn't actually get into Naples gone 9pm. As soon as we left the train station we where amazed how hectic it was. Not only was it hectic but it was really really dirty. Nothing like the other cities we had been to.
Our hotel wasn't too far away from the train …
... on their towels on the pebbly beach, trying to get a tan! We are rugged up in jeans and jackets - they are the crazy ones!
After breakfast, we wandered around looking at the shops for a while, then back to the
B&B before catching the bus to Amalfi town. Wow – what an adventurous drive. There were several times where the bus had to back up or wait for a car to back up so that, one at a time, we ...
... concerning the Mafia, trash crisis (the worst is actually over) and some parts of the city are impoverished, but if you look even further than that and by exercising a bit of caution, you will find a vibrant city with plenty to see and do."
So, I really liked it. Both Thursday and Friday night were to quote Wiki "vibrant." The nightlife areas of town were packed with people, young and old in bars, restaurants, cafes ...
My door locked! I don't know if I just twisted the key perfectly for once, or if Mr 10 minutes came and fixed it, but it made my room a safe wee haven for a solitary rest complete with shower and Italian junk TV. Laundry almost but not quite dry in the morning. It'll have to do. Mr 10 minutes gave me a chit for breakfast, but they keep giving me bread. First it's a croissant, I say 'senze glutine' and they give me a wrapped bar of some kind. I look at the packet and ...
... I came to visit, and I was so excited to be able to go back!
What I didn't know, since my sisters room doesn't have a window is that it was raining like crazy outside. When I checked the television for the weather it just looked like overcast skies, little did we know we were venturing out into a crazy thunderstorm! Also, we found out that was part of the issue with the ship rocking which happened just after Rochelle finished her shows. The rocking ended being worse in the ...

This hotel wasn't too bad but I think where it is would put off a lot of people. It's not too far from the train station and it seems like you have to walk through the back streets of Brooklyn to get there. The hotel was at the end of a cul-de-sac. When we walked in the receptionist was laying down on the sofa watching TV. He checked us in and showed us to our room. The room itself was too bad. It was clean, we had air con and a TV. But our double bed was two single beds pushed together which meant I was the one sleeping in crack haha. The bathroom on the other hand was nice.
Outside of the hotel was rough and rugged. Was really dirty but we kind of liked this because it gave the area some character. When we went for a wonder and brought back some pizzas the owner didn't mind at all which was good.
We were happy with this hotel because it was cheap and cheerful but for some people its not the best place to stay because of where it is. If it is a flying visit like ours then its good for that but wouldn't stay there for a week or so.
