    Naples, Italy

    September 21, 2017 in Italy

    Today we docked in Naples, Italy 🇮🇹.
    Last time I was here, I went to the left from the port and visited the Castle Nuovo, and then had a stroll and found a beautiful church and a very interesting museum.
    This time I decided to go right. I had looked on Google maps, and there was something called the Penne Palace, which conjured up thoughts of Napoli in times gone by, with beautiful ornate buildings.
    I should have known better, this was modern day Naples, and what I found was a very run down building, which looked nothing like a palace at all.
    Having said that, you could see that it was a beautiful building in its day, and could be beautiful again, with some restoration.
    Next to the palace was an old church, again very run down the front door was open, so, I poked my head inside, and it appeared to be getting used by students having an art class.
    Around the corner I came across another church, and in this one the university was holding a graduation ceremony, with the students wearing mortar boards and being presented with certificates.
    After that I had a walk around the back streets, which brought to mind the Peter Sarstedt song, "Where do you go to my lovely" where he sings about the girl being brought up on the back streets of Naples.
    Then having had my fill of neapolitan culture, I headed back to the ship for lunch.

    Naples, Italy

    August 12, 2016 in Italy

    First time in a long time I've got off at Naples Italy 🇮🇹, and I'd forgotten what an interesting city it is.
    I know it can be a bit rough around the edges and a bit scruffy in places, but there is plenty to see.
    Once again you don't have to do any expensive excursions from the ship or even by local taxi or tour operators.
    Within 10 minutes walk from the ship you come across Castello Nuovo, which is a medieval castle and museum, the Teatro di San Carlo, which was built in 1737 and is the oldest theatre in the world to have continuously shown operatic performances right up to this day.
    Further along from the theatre you come across the
    Piazza del Plebiscito, or referendum square, with the Basilica Reale San Francesco di Paola, which is a beautiful Catholic Church, with a dome and pillars reminiscent of the Vatican. On the opposite side of the piazza is the Royal Palace which is now a museum, and for a very reasonable charge of €4, you can wander around the very rooms the bourbon kings and queens of Italy used to live. And my god did they have an opulent lifestyle.
    With the fabulous main staircase of carved marble, leading up to the private rooms of the King ♔ and Queen ♕.
    These rooms where amazing with the doors being works of art in themselves, with hand painted classical designs.
    So once again for not a lot of money and just close to the port, there are lots of beautiful things to see.

    Day trip to Naples

    June 29 in Italy

    We took the ferry to Napes today to explore the city on the open top bus. Then we took a walk through the narrow streets and looked around the shops. We took the late afternoon ferry back to Sorrento and after dinner we stopped off at the hotel bar for our nightly Negroni and beautiful sunset view.
