Villa Floridiana - Coastal View
The Duchess of Floridia was the much beloved mistress of Naples' much beloved King Ferdinand I, "Bomba" as he was known to his subjects. He eventually married her, "morganatically" as they called it back then, in a "Charles 'n Camilla" kind of way. As a love-token, he gave her the beautifully situated villa which still bears her name, and which is now the home of a National Museum of Ceramics. With so many museums to choose from in and around Naples, I didn't have a chance to investigate the pots, but I certainly did enjoy strolling through the verdant and forested grounds of the Villa. At the edge of the property is a steep cliff from which noble and notable views of the Neapolitan coastline can be had.

Mama Rosa's, a small pizza restaurant near Pinetamarie, about 30 miles north of Naples.
Very friendly owner, whose Enlish is good and whose cooking is better. Low prices (dinner for 4 about $70 US). Spaghetti with fresh clams and mussels. Also, homemade prosciutto.
Catacombs of San Gennaro
The oldest of Naples catacombs - founded in 2nd century AD and it was here that in 5th century San Gennaro´s body was interred.
It is an impressive array of dark halls, remnant of tombs and in some places you can still see the early christian frescoes and mosaics.
The visits are with guides only as a part of a group, there are departures about every hour in the morning. The entry is to the left of Chiesa di Madre di Buon Consiglio, on the Capodimonte.
The altar of Basilica di Santa Chiara
This altar is a very good fit with the medieval atmosphere of the rest of the church. It is a relief from the excesses of baroque of many other Italian churches. All there is is stone and wood, making it a very sobre and religious place. The church is in the centre of via dei Capitelli, Staccanapoli.
