Our last day in Nice started with a sleep in (8.30!!), brekky, and packing. As our flight isn't till 7.10pm, we were lucky enough to be allowed to leave our luggage in the apartment until 4pm. The alternative doesn't bare thought....dragging suitcases around Nice in 30 degree temperatures. We wandered into the old town for the last time, then …
... have the same stupid bunch of Japanese women standing 3 abreast across the doorway that is only wide enough for one person. At this point I lose it and say you have to get out of the way to let people out so you can get in. They all giggle and they are lucky I did not punch them .
Back to the car and Ricardo and we are off.
Now the drive to the Amalfi Coast is about 1 hour away and the scenery is just amazing we stop a few times to get some great photos ...
... bought another leather purse (it seems to be the national pastime - I'm surprised that the country doesn't smell like leather!) and some pastries. We got meats, cheeses, and pasta salad to eat in the square for lunch, but I never got hungry enough to eat them. I wanted to save the calories for our big dinner at the hotel in the evening where we get together to say arrivederchi to Tuscany. On the way home we stopped to go into an Etruscan tomb that had recently been found and ...
... get there and back again. One of the restaurants the book recommended for the view and not the food was down near the arco too, but we happily walked on by as I already had a place in mind. In 2008 when Tanya and I were here we came across the same sort of crowd and didn’t want to get caught in one of the restaurants that served soggy pasta with everyone else, we wanted a local experience, a bustling trattoria that served up the best of what the coast had to offer. We wanted ...
Sorry, I had to keep the lyric-titles going. That's one of my favorite Italian songs, "Mambo Italiano" which unfortunately is NOT on my iPod. Bums me out. And yes, you could say, well just download it. But I can't figure out how to connect my iPod to the travelin' PC so that means no syncing and also no photo transfers. Which is a right shame for you folks because I have some GREAT photos on that thing. Okay, maybe that's an ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Piazza Bellini Naples
Questo è assolutamente l'hotel più bello in cui sia mai stato in Italia. Tutto era nuovo e il personale era strepitoso: non avevo mai trovato persone così ospitali e disponibili. Le camere erano completamente SILENZIOSE: non appena chiudevo le porte del balcone non sentito più alcun rumore dall'esterno. Purtroppo, chiudendo le porte, bloccavo anche il segnale del mio cellulare. Se volevo usarlo, dovevo uscire sul balcone. L'hotel era molto sicuro, con telecamere e porte chiuse a chiave all'ingresso principale e alla reception, da cui si potevano raggiungere tutte le camere. La posizione non era, invece, per niente comoda perché l'hotel si trova in cima a un pendio e non è facile raggiungerlo a piedi con i bagagli. Non lo consiglio a persone anziane o a chi viaggia con bambini. Potrete comunque arrivarci in taxi, ma dovrete ancora salire alcuni scalini per raggiungere la reception e alcune camere. In ogni caso, se ritornassi a Napoli, vorrei ASSOLUTAMENTE stare in questo hotel: mi è piaciuto così tanto che vorrei viverci! E, nonostante abbia viaggiato molto, non mi ero mai sentito così a mio agio in un hotel.
Un hôtel fantastique
Sans doute l'hôtel avec le meilleur rapport qualité prix où j'ai eu le plaisir de séjourner en Europe, superbe salle de bain, très grande chambre, les employés de l'hôtel sont extrêmement aimables, charmants et intelligents, très propre. Charmant vieil immeuble, super emplacement avec Internet gratuit. Bon petit déjeuner, nous avons aussi aimé l'entrée de l'immeuble. Ne croyez pas les mauvaises choses que les gens disent sur Naples, il suffit d'être relativement prudents dans la rue, et vous n'aurez pas de problèmes... profitez, mais n"ébruitez pas trop l'information, car je ne veux pas que cela devienne trop cher pour mon prochain voyage (Ah ouais et admirez les tableaux - jolis !).
without doubt the best value for money hotel i have had the pleasure of staying in in europe, bathroom amazing, very large rooms, extremely helpful, engaging and intelligent hotel staff, very clean. Lovely old building. super location with free internet.. fine breakfast, we also lovefd the enterance. Dont believe bad things people say about naples, so long as you are relatively street wise you will have no problems...enjoy, but dont make this place too popular as i dont want it to get too expensive for next time i visit (oh yeah and enjoy the artwork-nice touch)
Que pasada de hotel
Estuvimos en julio, y solo una noche, pero nos gusto mucho, es muy "cuco" todo de diseño, nuevo y esta todo muy limpio, lo recomiendo. El desayuno esta bien, no hay mucha variedad pero todo muy aseado y muy bueno.
Wunderschön, sehr empfehlenswert!
Sehr schönes Hotel, Zimmer groß, modern und äußerst geschmackvoll eingerichtet, sehr ruhig (man glaubt kaum, in Neapel zu sein), dabei gleichzeitig sehr zentral an der schönen kleinen Piazza Bellini mit Restaurants und Bars. Gute Frühstücksauswahl, sehr freundliches und hilfreiches Personal, die sehr gut Englisch sprachen. Autogarage (ca. 15 Euro die Nacht) in der Nähe. Die Fotos des Hotels halten das, was sie versprechen. Wunderschönes Hotel, sehr empfehlenswert!!
This was absolutely the best hotel I stayed at in Italy. Everything was new and the staff was absolutely fabulous; no where else were they so accommodating and helpful. It was absolutely SILENT in the rooms; the moment I closed the balcony doors; all the sounds of nighttime revelry were completely eliminated. Unfortunately, it also stopped my mobile phone from receiving any signal when the door was shut so I'd stand in the balcony if I wanted to use my phone for SMSes.
