Wayfaring in Napoli.

After spending the first half of the week in Venezia, C and I made our way down to Napoli. We decided to save money and time by booking the overnight train. It served us well as far as savings, but it was not a comfortable ride. The train was packed – I mean there were people sitting in the aisles through the night! We managed to get seats, but it was super cramped and uncomfortable. So, if that’s the way you want to go, it will save you time and money – but don’t plan on a good night’s sleep.

When we finally arrived in Napoli, we hurried to our hostel to drop off our bags and get to sightseeing. We had less time in Napoli than we did in Venezia, so there was a lot more aimless wandering, or wayfaring, if you will.

You can see me cheesing in front of this church!Naples Naples Naples Naples Naples Naples Naples Naples Naples Naples Naples Naples Naples Naples I love when graffiti is art. I can appreciate artistic graffiti. I don’t like the words and symbols that don’t add anything of beauty to the walls.Naples graffiti Naples Naples Naples Naples Naples I just about fell over laughing when C and I found a pub in Naples that sells Clyde water (or Tennent’s of Scotland, as some might call it). We stopped in and got a pint of course – well, not of Tennent’s since I hate beer.clyde water

 

We had a lot of fun wayfaring in Napoli. The city was very walkable with good public transportation if you needed it. Our hostel offered donkey rides up Mt Vesuvius that C and I really wanted to do, but we didn’t have enough time to pre-book the trip (you needed to book like 2 days in advance).
