It was now getting closer to the day we had to leave Italy, so we headed south to finish it all on a high note. Our bus took us through Naples, which was very different to the cities of the north that we had seen. Granted we didn't see much of it, and I'm sure there are beautiful areas, but where we were, there was a lot of garbage everywhere, the …
