    You never know what to expect!

    October 2, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 17 °C

    So, We arrived in Napoli and asked our wonderful host what to eat. She walked us to the end of the block, pointed down the road and said, "Michele's, in the Piazza." So, in the rain and with lightning all around, off we trudged. When we arrived we found the sort of restaurant that you wouldn't even give a second glance at in the UK, yet odly, there was a queue awaiting to get in. So we took our ticket number and waited in line.
    We only just ate in one of only 15 Michelin starred pizza restaurants in the world!!! No menu. Either margarita or marinara, Either beer or coke. That was it. Best pizza we've ever tasted. Julia Roberts also ate here in the film Eat Pray Love. A truly marvellous dining experience that everyone who comes to Napoli should try.

    Neapel's Verwaltungsviertel

    July 26, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Heute waren wir im Verwaltungsviertel von Neapel. Das war echt interessant, die Häuser sind so aus den 80er und 90er Jahren udn dementsprechend auch irgendwie sehr heruntergekommen...aber es ist so die sauberste Gegend in Neapel gewesen. Da haben wir dann auch verstanden, warum die Stadt doch so herunterkommen und schmuddelig ist...
    Außerdem beigefügt: Foto vom Sonnenaufgang mit Vesuv und eins vom Feuerwerk welches uns jeden Morgen um 6 Uhr geweckt hat...

    Många km senare...

    April 19, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Idag har både knoppen och kroppen jobbat. Vi har strosat omkring över en mil i denna brokiga stad där trottoarerna inte går att använda för att gå på då allt annat samlas där. (Hjärnan jobbar på högvarv för överlevnad) Så vi går på gatorna och parerar bland bilar och scootrar..

    Nu tar vi en stänkare på vår rooftop bar och njuter av den ljumma kvällen.

    Mer bilder från dagen i Neapel

    April 22, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    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.

    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

    Saturday before Christmas in Naples

    December 22, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Before falling into the moving masses through the old quarter, we decided to get our culture in first. First stop, the Palace (now Art Museum) way up high in Capodimonte. I think I will be fine if I never go through another Bourbon palace (Though the grand piano playing in the ballroom was very pretty), but it was nice to see those familiar Carlos-es who were also king of Spain. Even a couple of Goyas. Carvaggio, Titian, El Greco, Breughel, lots of madonnas and saints. Titian’s portraits of the pope Paul III were probably my favorites, and then way up on the fourth floor hidden away — Andy Warhol’s Vesuvius erupting!

    From there we walked down to the Catacombs of San Gennaro, patron saint of Naples. Even though he was not from Naples, when he made Vesuvius stop erupting, he became their patron. His bones have moved around a bit, but we saw their original 4th century resting place. Graves were from 3rd century onward, till sometime in the middle ages, when a church edict required all bodies to be moved because they were too close to the growing city. San Gennaro’s blood miraculously liquifies three times a year at special masses, but the church has not allowed for scientific examination.

    All cultured out, we walked back down to the historic center, a mad crush of people shopping and eating. Street food is sold at least every ten feet in one stall or another. Joe had a very delicious pistacchio canolo. We visited a couple of elaborate nativity scenes, some mechanical, and all beautiful.

    Dinner tonight will be in a nearby osteria recommended by the hotel, well known for fish.

    First pizza in Naples

    December 21, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Well, I will just slip in a few pictures of the pizza and the Pizzeria Antillo. Great recommendation from our hotel. Totally delicious. Joe had one with squash and mushrooms, I had a special “8 star” pizza with fresh ricotta pockets in each star.

    Feeling totally sated, and totally safe, in Naples. But I did find a little irony in the “Merry Christmas” lights over the piles of garbage.

    Churches and street food

    December 23, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    So, somehow I deleted this post, but I will try again. Today was a day of churches, including the Duomo (16-18th century cathedral, with its far more interesting 4th century baptistry with its ancient mosaics)), the chapel of San Severo (where a sculptor figured out how to make veils over bodies with one piece of marble, and a visit to the Contemporary Art Museum and its exhibit of Maplethorpe photos (the rest of the installations were the kind of thing unitiatated people like me would say things like —my grandkids could do this!). We walked for miles and miles, eating a lot of street food, and having lunch at a recommended place where people shouted and gesticulated to get what they wanted. As you might imagine, it took us a long time.

    We are thoroughly enjoying Naples, and recommend it to people who are not looking for prettified places to go.
