Views of Napoli.

After a day of wayfaring, C and I decided to hike up to Castel Sant’Elmo to see what Napoli looked like to the gods.

I was shocked at how expansive the city is! I felt like the city was so easily walkable and that we had seen so much, but I was so wrong. Well, it was easily walkable and we just clearly wandered only nearby where we were staying.

There is a museum at Castel Sant’Elmo, but we decided not to go in. Just to soak up the views from outside the castle walls.IMG_0364

Check out Mount Vesuvius looming in the background like a creeper.

I just realized, as I wrote this post, that C and I had an epic failure of planning this trip. I just put two and two together that Mount Vesuvius is the volcano that buried Pompeii and Herculaneum way back in the day and that they are less than a half hour by train from Napoli! You see kids, this is why you plan!

Regardless, Napoli is a gorgeous city from above. It was really nice to be able to see the whole of the city from the Castel.
