... to date is very interesting. Number one best discovery, in my opinion, is if anyone wants to build a city or even just their house at the base of a big volcano they really should think twice about that idea. Just sayin'
We spent a few hours wandering the ruins of Pompeii where that pesky flying squirrel made its appearance, maybe for its last time on this trip. We then caught the train back and went for a walk to find this little coffee place that ...
... ear plugs. At 7:00 am the church bell across the alley started ringing, not a melodious peal, but a stringent clanging like a dinner bell or fire alarm bell which we first thought it was. The bell is at the convent and the bell ringing 40 times at 7:00 signals they have begun their prayers. It rings again at 7:30 to signal the chapel is open for those who want to come and pray. The 8:45 and 9:15 ringing indicates mass is about to begin. Wonder ...
... would not give up on our venture but would continue to look for the funicular to see what it had to offer.
Soon came across Funiculare Centrale and made enquiries re purchasing tickets. One euro seventy each to travel the entire length and return also if done in under ninety minutes. Quickly boarded the train which was full of locals and very few tourists and we set off on the 1234.8 metre climb through a steep gradient stopping at two stations on the way ...
... was not impressed. We caught the Metro to the museum and enjoyed looking at the mosaics and other artifacts that were there from Pompei and other areas. Some of them were just like paintings they were so intricately done. On re-entering the Metro Steve was jousled at the ticket barrier and then felt a hand going into his pocket for his mobile phone. I’m sorry to say that was enough for us and we are happy not to go there again.
... who were enjoying. Its a view that, like so many things Ive seen, pictures and words and describe or capture, but it will never live up to what i saw at that time. Forever burned in my memory i hope! Basically headed back and i had some time for some deepish water soloing at the beach!! was so good. I did two climbs. One i called the European Cyclops because its similiar to the one in NZ but its a little frilly at the top with a half dyno and this painful crimp (v5) and the other ...

Nice, modern hotel, with friendly service and a lovely rooftop terrace. Excellent breakfast with a selection of hot dishes, in addition to cereals, pastries, cakes, bread, juice, cappuccino/espresso, etc.
Conveniently-located a very short walk to the train station, but keep in mind that the train station area isn't the nicest spot later at night - still safe, but seedy.

Historical Traveler Reviews UNA Hotel Napoli Naples
Excellent new hotel downtown Naples
We can recommend this hotel. It is clean, functional and beds are very comfortable. Staff are attentive, cheerful and helpful.
Breakfast is good and meals can be taken on the roof top patio as dining room is on the topmost floor.
We had the room with disabled facilities which we required and while the grab bars were adequate a drop down rail near the W.C. would have been helpful. Also the W.C. should have been a higher bowl which would have been normal for a well equipped disabled bathroom.
Another point I must mention is if you buy an airport transfer ticket at the hotel desk for Euro 18 the taxi driver only gets Euro 13 when he redeems it and they are unhappy with this so if you want to keep your taxi driver sweet pay him cash at the end of the journey.
We checked into the UNA for 5 nights at the start of a two week tour of Naples and the archaeological sites from Herculaneum to Velia. We also spent our last night at the hotel before flying back to London. The hotel is ideally placed for the bus link to the airport, buses, trams, the mainline train station, metro and the Circumvesuviana with links to Pompeii and Herculaneum. Easy access to the heart of town, key sights and the archaeological museum. We were also able to pick up a car from the Avis office at the station for further excursions to Amalfi, Paestum and Velia. The UNA is a new, ultra modern hotel. Very well equipped and comfortable bedrooms. Good bar/café on the roof. Excellent breakfast buffet.
My husband and I stayed in this hotel for one night as we were flying out of Naples early in the morning.
Arrived from Agropoli into Central Station and was delighted to see our hotel was located across the square. It looked like a 3 minute walk but this turned into an obstacle course and was quite nerve racking, trying to dodge cars, buses and taxis who seem to drive with one hand and use their other hand to "beep". Traffic lights mean absolutely nothing here.
My girlfriend and me were looking for a place to stay in Naples and checked at the Una website, as we had previously stayed in the Una Hotel in Florence. When we found out that Una had opened a new hotel in Naples, we did not hesitate to make the booking.
When looking for a hotel in Italy it is very easy to find obsolete rooms/hotels with an urgent need to be refurbished. Mostly are quite expensive for what you get. So the best way to find a good value hotel is to look for a new one. I have been in a few, but UNA Hotel Napoli is a VERY GOOD value hotel.
On the last day of our honeymoon we were in Sorrento, Italy. We needed a place to stay near the airport in Naples to catch a 7am flight home. Our travel agent booked us at the Palace Hotel and it was awful! We drove from Sorrento, which was the most breathtaking place either of us had ever seen, and arived in Naples at sunset. We were greeted by bums and garbage all over the sidewalks in front of the hotel. Our room was dirty, had a hole in the wall and smelled like mildew. The bed was also very uncomfortable. Due to this, and all the noise from the street, we did not sleep at all that night. At 4am, on the way to the airport, we saw what appeared to be hookers in the lobby! All in all, a horrible end to a fairy tale vacation in Italy. We both wished we had stayed in Sorrento and just gotten up three hours earlier in the morning!
