    Pompeii ii

    October 4, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    More from what has been an excellent day touring Pompeii. It is huge and It is incredible to think how much material has been removed in order to expose the ruins. Work is still continuing with much of the area still to be unearthed. You will need all day to visit this site and you will need plenty of food and drink especially in the summer when there is no relief from the sunRead more

    Top of the world

    October 3, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Getting up Vesuvius requires a fair bit of effort but it is worth it. Watching steam venting from an active Volcano 1281 meters up, reminds you that nature, not man is in charge of this planet. And the aged 4x4 Pandas is how the staff get up and downRead more

    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.

    Pompeii iii

    October 4, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Last few pics. It is just amazing. We would suggest that you with a get a tour guide or an audio guide. There is no information inside the ruins and the maps and paper guides are confusing and out of date which makes wandering quite difficult. It is definitely worth paying for a guide.Read more

    Home Cooked Food

    October 4, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    We are staying in a lovely room with a view of Mount Vesuvius and last night the father in law of the owner cooked us dinner and it was beautiful. We sat outside with a bottle of wine and had the anti pasti you can see and genuine home cooked carbonara. The Visa View apartment in Pompeii is a little gem of a place.Read more

    We first learnt of this historical place whilst at infant school and we have both waited many years to visit and it was definitely worth it.
    An amazing historical site that provokes many thoughts and emotions as you learn about the lives of the people who lived here and about what they were doing in the moments before they died.
    Some of the timber, including bed frames and staircases is preserved and visible nearly 2000 years after being buried. There are also paintings still on the walls and many mosaic floors completely intact.
    A truly amazing experience.

    October 13, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    We caught the Freccarossa fast train from Rome to Naples...reaching up to 298kph on the way. Our driver and mercedes van were waiting for us at the station and drove us to the Pompeii ruins. A private guide then took us for a 2 hour tour of the ruins which was fantastic! After the tour she took us back to a restaurant, where the driver was waiting, who then summoned the waiter who set us up at the best table in the place...we felt like VIP's! After lunch the driver (who had waited for us for 3 hours by this stage), took us to our AirBnB at Sorrento.

    Unbelievable story of the burial of Pompeii from the rocks and ash from Mt. Vesuvius. Very interesting...

    Pompeji und der Penisbrunnen

    September 26 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    In Pompeji habe ich Lena und Vincent aus Hamburg getroffen und wir hatten einen netten spontanen Nachmittag mit guten Gesprächen und einem Kaffee. Vincent hat sich als ausgeprochen guter Tourguide für Pompeji erwiesen 😁Read more

    August 7, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Wenn der Kühlschrank keine Lust mehr hat und die Markisenkurbel auf irgendeinem Zeltplatz vergessen herumliegt, die Trittstufe nicht mehr herausfährt und das Propangas fast alle ist 😮😋 dann wird's echt Zeit für einen Werkstatt Besuch.

    Wir haben die La Boutique di Campeggiatore in Porticio nahe Neapel auserwählt.

    Das Abenteuer geht weiter!!!!
    Und das Urlaubsbudget wird sicherlich ne böse Klatsche erleiden 🥴💩

    Aber ohne Kühlschrank 🥶 bei den Temperaturen hier macht es autark stehen und überhaupt Campen keinen Sinn.

    Nach den 6 Wochen auf Achse werden wir uns dann auch eine Unterkunft suchen...lassen wir uns überraschen 😉

    Als wir ankamen, wurden wir so freundlich empfangen und Oli wurde geherzt von der italienischen Gastfreundschaft.. ein Familienbetrieb wie er im Buche steht. Wir fühlen uns sehr wohl und gut aufgehoben hier ☺️

    Die Verständigung geht nur mit Hand und Gestik und vorallem mit dem Google funktioniert tuto béne 😂
    Englisch... keine Chance 😅😁 das können die Süditaliener nicht.
