... matters worse we had both neglected to put on sun screen until we'd spent several hours on the open water. We were both badly sunburnt which we hadn't really noticed until we made it back to the hotel and calmed down. After a cool shower and some Aloe we headed into town for a quiet dinner. We happened to end up at a table that was inches away from another couple who sat down at the same time as us. By the time we got our drinks it felt like we were dining with them so ...
... spewing out pungent steam. We step closer and closer to the largest fumarole to snap the inevitable photo. The heat is intense, the pumice floor hot and to the great amusement of everyone around, I start hopping around like a deranged tap dancer.
Camping in an active volcano is not without its concerns. I do not sleep, licking my scorched paws, constantly vigilant, I toss and turn. I hear a low rumble, increasing in volume -luckily it's only Signor's ...
... perched on a narrow butte with steep drops on almost all sides. Here I follow each alley down to the edge just to get another view and have another memorable moment, gazing out over the sea in a church’s courtyard or alley’s dead end. Wonderful little place, this Vico Equense.
I continue on, as a beautiful sunset forms over the sky. Traffic is heavy once again, but I’m determined not ...
... a restaurant quick smart! We were looking for one the 'Lonely Planet' had recommended, but some guys on the street told us the owner was on holiday. Turns out we were glad he was as we found an amazing little restaurant with some outside seating in one of the Piazza's. We all went for Pizza, and could now understand why Naples is so famous for it! After a cheers to Kev, the birthday boy, we ...
... Lunch was great, by the way, but more on the food later... We took the harrowing journey up the volcano in a large van (crammed in with no seatbelts) and arrived a bit dizzy. We saw the plume of steam rising from Vesuvius as we reached the crater and thought about the people who were surprised 2000 years ago by its eruption.

This place is ideally placed right next to the beaches of Naples bay. Liked it because we didn't have to climb down to it from the steep cliffs surrounding this coast. Just loved the location which was a mix of gardens and sea views. Our accommodation was ageing but the location made up for it. The staff are very helpful and at least a couple speak English and are willing to help out. Don't recommend the restaurant - food too pricey and the waiters are sour!
