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 …
... were pretty good on the menu posted outside. It ended up being really fantastic.
We ordered bruschetta misto for our appertif, I got a calzone and Brittany got a pasta in a white sauce. We also got some sparkling water and a half-litre of wine all for 25 euros. Pretty impressive as it was one of our cheaper dinners in Italy and one of the tastiest.
By the time we were done dinner it was about 10pm and so we headed back to our hotel room to ...
... zing in and out, see the washing lines from a different angle.....awesome stuff.
We then dropped down and made our way to the waterfront. This is obviously where most of the tourists stay because all the hotels seem to be here, all in much better condition and dressed up for Christmas. One hotel on the waterfront had gone the whole nine yards and stuck a Xmas tree on each small balcony....never seen anything like it! Actually Christmas ...
... renaissance painters like Giotto to shame. On the mezzanine floor you find the mosaics that have been uncovered in Pompeii. Because of the method and materials used they are in an excellent state of repair. One has to remember that they were made over two thousand years ago and yet shine through as a monument to their creators. The most investing to me are those that show simple everyday items such as loaves of bread and food, objects from daily life as this ...
... we went on a four hour tour to Herculaneum- a town with ruins that are not as large as Pompeii, but, from what I have been told are better preserved.
The kids decided to stay in the 'actually getting to be fun' Kids Club, whilst Daryl and I went on the four hour tour to the ancient city.
First stop on the tour was a visit to a place that carves by hand, Cameos (meaning carvings in Italian).
I was prepared to see a ...

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.
