      La meilleure pizza margherita du monde !

      October 26, 2022 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

      La pizza Margherita est née à Napoli (aux couleurs de l'Italie pour la Reine Margherite) ... alors il nous suffisait de trouver la meilleure pizzeria de la ville pour trouver la meilleure pizza Margherita du Monde !!
      Et on la trouvée grâce au Routard et à quelques heures de marche... (funiculaire fermé et raccourci qui s'avère être un "rallongi" ... et dans une ville avec autant de dénivelé c'est pas peu dire !!! On l'a vraiment méritée notre pizza !!!!)
      Pizza 3.0 Ciro Cascella. Ils font fermenter la pâte pendant 24h puis la laissent reposer 12h. Elle est aérienne... plus que briochée ...c'est vraiment EXCEPTIONNEL !
      On a apprécié cette pizza et avons observé les pizzaioli oeuvrer, même si on sait bien que jamais on ne saura faire la même chose !
      Ensuite on a trouvé un parc, et on a fait la sieste au soleil !!! Je crois que c'est le meilleur dessert après une pizza comme celle-là !!!

      Les transports à Napoli

      October 26, 2022 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

      Parmi les points dépaysants on a les manières de se déplacer des locaux. Ici en numéro un c'est le scooter, petit ou gros, avec ou sans casque (plutôt sans), bruyant ou pas, tout seul ou à plusieurs... il passe partout tout le temps. J'imagine qu'ici on apprend aux enfants à faire ses lacets ou de démarrer son scooter 😉
      Sinon on voit beaucoup de vélos électriques à grosses roues, en location. Il faut dire que ça monte et que les routes pavées supportent bien les roues énormes !
      Enfin dans les quelques rues lisses (goudronnées) on voit des trottinettes électriques.
      Et aussi bien pratique ici : le funiculaire.
      Le stationnement est aussi un axe de dépaysement 😉

      Naples 1

      May 18 in Italy ⋅ ☁️ 21 °C

      In old Napoli - that's amore!
      Managed to get out for a morning run along the waterfront in Salerno, before heading off for our train to Napoli!
      We started out on a warm morning, and stopped for coffee at a cafe near the station before pretty impressive thunder and lightning and subsequent rain put a bit of a dampener on things!
      Arrived in Naples about 12.15 and in lovely Vomero about 1. Just a 10 min walk to our airbnb which is in a lovely building and location. However the continuing drizzle and cool weather convincedbus to focus on washing clothes and resting up for a big few days.
      Our dear friends Elisabetta and Vincenzo had invited us to join us them at their friend's house for dinner. We only later found out that it was said friends birthday! Luckily we had bought some flowers and I had chocolate with Australian flavours that I had brought from home to offer as a gift and thanks for inviting us. Judith decided to have quiet night and so D&i put on our best and cleanest clothes for the occasion.
      It was lovely reuniting with Elisabetta and Vincenzo and Stella ( who we thought was somewhere else in Europe) and Angela and Luigi who we had met previously, and making new friends over the course of the evening such a privilege to be invited and spend time with these wonderful people. And so much wonderful food!
      It was quite a late night - and we were the first to leave (at 12 30), making our way through the busy and lively streets of Volmero on a Saturday night.

      Denna miljonstad har ett hetsigt temperament, for sure, men ack så trevlig.
      Maten vi ätit har varit superb. Det går liksom inte att ogilla det italienska köket. Mozarellan har en smak "to die for"

      Tack för minnesvärda dagar i den kokande staden.

      September 14, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

      Auch heute bin ich bei der Anlandung am frühen Morgen auf dem Balkon gestanden und war auf‘s Neue überrascht, wie sachte unser Kapitän das Schiff rückwärts einparkt.
      Nach dem Frühstück haben wir uns entschlossen, Neapel zu Fuß zu erkunden, nachdem der Vesuv total im Dunst verschwand.
      Zuerst zur Festung, dann zum Nachbau der Mailänder Einkaufsmeile und dann hatten wir die Idee, den kleinen Hausberge dahinter zu erklimmen , damit wir einen schönen Blick auf Neapel werfen können.
      Tja und schon waren wir mitten in den Slums von Neapel. Richard hat es früher geschnallt und ist den Berg hinaufgeeilt. Ich fotografierend mit dem Handy hinterher. Hab dann einen anschnauzer kassiert, dass ich dich endlich das Handy wegstecken soll.
      Und plötzlich hört die Straße an einer Mauer auf! Rechts entdecken wir eine kleine Stiege, erklimmen sie und stehen wieder im „normalen“ Leben mit Bäumen, Blumen, Geschäften und Hotels. Einfach unglaublich!
      500 m weiter gibt es einen schönen Weg entlang der Zahnradbahn zurück in die Stadt.

      Naples: Certosa e Museo di San Martino

      October 27, 2023 in Italy ⋅ 🌬 73 °F

      When I took a close-up or two of a church through the embrasures in the walls of Castel Sant’Elmo, I didn’t realize that we’d be heading there next … the Charterhouse Church and Monastery of San Martino.

      St Martin’s was one of the most important monasteries of the Carthusian monks. It was founded in 1325 as a complex following Carthusian rules. That is, it had a church, cloisters, and vegetable gardens. Not much remains of the original Gothic structure as much of it has been covered by decorative elements and stucco work that was added in the following centuries. After Naples was proclaimed a republic in 1799, the monks were forced to leave. Though they returned a few years later, their numbers were greatly reduced. In 1866, the monastery was handed over to the State, and a year later it became part of the National Museum.

      At first, the exhibits were linked primarily to Neapolitan history and were housed in the Prior’s quarters, the refectory, the old pharmacy, and the entrance hall. During the 1900s, the collections displayed grew and became more varied, and new sections of the monastery were added as exhibit space.

      We started out by checking out the Charterhouse Church, which was built between 1365-1368 as part of the original monastery complex. Beginning in the late 16th century, the Gothic structure underwent restoration work that added features that were Baroque in nature … followed by more restoration that added Rococo features to the interior … such as the amazing marble, gemstone, and bronze balustrade. We found the marble marquetry work especially beautiful and eye-catching.

      Then we went into the museum itself. The exhibited art was distinctly religious in nature. But there were also other interesting exhibits that had us spending time studying them. As well, the ceilings in several of the rooms were beautifully painted.

      One highlight here was the diorama entitled the Cuciniello Crib … so named for the donor of the pieces that make up the collection. Essentially a nativity scene exhibited in the monks’s kitchens, it includes shepherds, animals, works of still life, the procession of the Three Wise Kings, and more … all arranged to show everyday life in the 18th century. I found it interesting that the lighting went from dawn to daylight to dusk to night, changing the ambiance of the diorama. But I think it was also a gimmick to keep visitors moving along as most did just that after dusk fell on the scene.

      Another highlight was the Great Cloister. This common area would have been the center of activity in the lives of the monks. The original cloister was redesigned at the end of the 16th century in the Renaissance style. The landscaping was simple … though the arches around the quadrangle, and the balustrade of the Monk’s Cemetery — topped with sculptures of skulls — added eye-catching details.

      We strolled around the cloister before finding the stairs that took us up to the choir of the Charterhouse church, and behind the altar for a different perspective of what we’d seen earlier.

      The small gallery featuring paintings of Naples of old was our last stop here … an appropriate way to end our visit to the museum.

      En dag i Neapel city

      April 22, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

      Vi har flängt runt så mycket de senaste dagarna så vi bestämde att idag skulle få en dag i stan med shopping.

      Det började bra och vi alla hittade nåt vi ville köpa. Sen gick vi på upptäcksfärd. Tog funicolare till Vomero för lunch. Vidare promemad till slottet St Elmo. Därifrån gick vi på "spanska trapporna" ner till området quartieri spagnoli. Sen kom regnet. Då tog vi en taxi till hotellet där vi fick den bästa tänkbara servicen tack vare Francesco, vår underbara servitör.Read more
