A One-Street Tour Shows Why I Like Naples
Naples and Pompeii
If you are visiting Naples don't miss the experience of participating in one of Mondo's walking tours of Naples! Yesterday we spent three hours with just 6 other travellers and our guide Dario Fornario, a qualified archaeologist. Dario provided a fantastic insight into the City, it's historical and fine arts significance. We now see and think of Naples differently; it is an amazing city with world significance. Great value for money, an inspiring tour. My friend and I both fully enjoyed our tour today of the Amalfi Coast.
In this program we go shopping Neapolitan style, dodge scooters in Naples' crazy traffic, explore the city's vibrant neighborhoods, admire exquisite ancient mosaics at the National Museum of Archaeology, taste pizza in its birthplace, climb the lip of Mount Vesuvius, and wander the amazing ruins of the Roman town it destroyed: Pompeii. Antica Pizzeria da Michele is for pizza purists. Filled with locals and tourists , it serves just two varieties: margherita tomato sauce and mozzarella and marinara tomato sauce, oregano, and garlic, no cheese. Come early to sit and watch the pizza artists in action. For a private two-hour tour of the excavations at Pompeii, consider Gaetano, who is pricey but brings energy and theatricality to his tours. Naples' Archaeological Museum offers the best possible peek at the art and decorations of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the two ancient burgs that were buried in ash by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A. When Pompeii was excavated in the late s, Naples' Bourbon king bellowed, "Bring me the best of what you find!

Crammed with chaos, Naples is appalling and captivating at the same time. It's Italy's third largest city, along with being its most polluted and crime-ridden and densely populated. But this tangled mess still somehow manages to breathe, laugh, and sing with a joyful Italian accent. It's the closest thing to "reality travel" in Western Europe — fertile, churning, exuberant, and fun. Naples is one of Italy's major cruise ports, and ships dock right in the town center.
