... We spent the day lounging and reading on a white sandy beach under a big umbrella. I've never had an all-inclusive or relaxing beach holiday, but I imagine that is what it would be like. I didn't want to leave. I even considered who I could bribe to stay a few more days. We had a delicious dinner of grilled vegetables, gnocchi, caprese salad and wine.

It's a shame the trip was just over an hour long - would have liked that seat for some of the longer journeys I've done! Spent the trip either reading or watching the scenery out the window, and got my first glimpse of Vesuvius as well - it's quite imposing!
Naples hasn't really impressed me so far, but then, I'm staying near the station, and those sorts of areas are rarely very nice in the ...
