Mangiare, canzione, e amore!!!
Eat, sing, and have a passionate love!!
You have to try the Pizza Neapolitana.
Also limoncello, the lemon liquer is beautiful in such a hot day.
You will also encounter the passionate lovers on the street whilst having a coffe at cafe! I have lost in Central Station over and over.
It is such a crouded place! I enjoyed looking at people though.
Well I took an absurdly small amount of stuff, having been told to come 'as I am'..however, they shops have some lovely things, of course beautiful shoes, clothes, bags, sunglasses...
but also some lovely jewellry... I was bought this lovely ring, which I ansolutely treasure Take the usual swim wear, a swim cap, sunglasses (although this is THE place (Italy that is) to be presented with the most fantastic range of good shades). Also I would advise you you take some nice jeans and good shoes (GOOD SHOES, this is Italy, shoes matter ;-) Trainers and a classy shirt/tops ot three...the Italians look darned stylish in the simplest of attire, try to blend, look chic and understated, eh :-)
Parking in the City
Parking in Napoli is one of the most difficult things you can do in a car. Finding a suitable spot it never easy, but when you do, the fun isn't over yet. You must ensure you are in a correct area for parking, and then if it's a pay area, you must purchase a scratch ticket to validate your time. These can be purchased at many shops around town. Try a Tabachi (Tobacco) shop or Cafe.
This is not your average run of the mill American mall, first of all there weren't any teenagers that I could see and not a Gap store in sight. The Galleria Umberto is a feast for the eyes with its sky scraping glass ceiling and its simplistic yet beautiful layout, definitely worth stopping in for a look. You can get to the Galleria from Piazza de Plebiscito by going down Cavour, which is the same street that will take your to the National Museum of Naples.
Pompeii and Herculaneum
Both sites are easily accessible by train from Naples, so at least Pompeii should be on your to do list when visiting Naples.
Both roman towns were submerged by the AD79 eruption of Mt Vesuvius, so are remarkably preserved and you have really a feeling of wandering the streets the inhabitants just left...
Many exhibits coming from these sites are also on display in the Naples Archeological museum.
