... volcano erupted, poisonous gasses swept through the town and following the poisonous gasses was incomprehensibly hot ash that asphyxiated the poor Pompeiians and what you would say 'baked' their bodies. The bodies decomposed but the mould of their bodies was formed in the ash. Pompeii laid under 4 to 6 meters of ash and pumice from the volcano which preserved a remarkable amount of the buildings until 1748 and not just buildings but even ...
... to the Vatican in size but it was amazing in its own right. Not a single inch was blank. There were paintings, mosaics, marble and gold covering everything. The amount of detail that went into everything was incredible. We spent a while exploring and even got to go down under the church alter to see the bones of Saint Geronimo. There was also another room dedicated to the bone fragments of other people who were important to the church.
After the Duomo we walked along ...
... us and you couldn't see the casts of the people who died at Pompeii there. We did, however, see many of the household things pulled up from Pompeii (most at the ruins themselves were replicas). So we sore original mosaic artworks, statues, jewellery, papyrus, games and other household items. It was quite amazing how well preserved they were from being covered in rock ...
The pick pocket capital of the world - its dirty,noisy, absolutely covered in graffiti ,and " cool " smoking teens but it has something about it ! Lorraine and Jeff came on the train with us from Sorrento. We didn't realize until the end of the day , and 2 hours of time wasted waiting , that the buses were on strike . So we missed the train to Naples after the bus from our campsite didn't turn up to take us to the train station until 40 mins late. Naples was ...
... we met up and blobbed with books in hand. It was a lovely hot day yesterday (as was today) – about 25 deg and a good humidity factor too :o)
Following a lazy bum lunch, we headed to the art auction! Not being familiar with art work nor auctions, we dutifully registered, mingled amongst the art with our free glasses of champagne and watched as the auctioneer did his magic and various art works were sold. They had a Picasso sketch ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Chiaja Hotel de Charme Naples
Great hotel in the "heart" of Napoli
3 friends and I stayed at the Chiaja Hotel for 2 nights in early Sept. The staff was great as was the breakfast. The rooms were a bit small but we didn't spend much time in them so that was fine. It is very convienent to restaurants, shopping and the sights.
Lovely Hotel, Great Staff
This hotel does merit its name 'hotel de charme'. Nicely furnished with good taste.
Wonderful and friendly staff. The room was cleaned twice a day ! The location is great too.
i'm really tempted to give this hotel a bad review so that i can keep it to myself. it is an absolute GEM! the rooms are beautifully decorated and the staff are very helpful and charming. the breakfast is substantial and of a very high quality. we got a room away from the street so it was very quiet but even if you do get a room facing the street they have very thick double glazing and sound proofing. the area felt very safe and we had no problems walking around at one or two in the morning. naples is a wonderfully vibrant and lively city with great food, good shopping( far less expensive than rome, florence or other towns on the amalfi coast), and a great cafe culture. will certainly try to go back again and stay at chiaia de charme.
Nice, perfectly located hotel
Small, friendly hotel in great central location, some rooms a bit noisy but that's Naples. Elegant rooms, OK value. Recommended
Great hotel at a perfect location in Napoli
This is a true gem. It is affordable, its location is superb and staff is very friendly. Breakfast is rather basic, but the rooms are perfectly all right and you are in a walking distance form most sights in the city. The staff can help you out with finding a good pizzeria where the locals get their Neapolitan pizza (which of course is a must when in Napoli).
