Monday’s Travel Photos – Naples

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

Naples is not a popular destination with tourists. True, we did have to hurriedly get off a bus when Jean Michel realised his pockets were being searched, but he had taken adequate precautions so nothing was stolen. But apart from that, I felt perfectly safe and I really loved Naples. I particularly liked the ceramics in the beautiful cloisters of Santa Chiara and the amazing Nativity cribs in the Certosa museum which overlooks Naples. We went by train from Vico Equense on the Bay of Naples where we were staying, which saved us the hassle of parking. Black Cat has been there since and she really enjoyed it too.

  1. Absolutely superb photos of Naples. Did you miss Teatro San Carlo? The most beautiful (and I think the oldest) opera theatre in Europe. And the Museo Archeologico di Napoli full of ancient Greek sculptures and the treasures from Pompeii. ??

    1. Thank you Gwendoline! Yes, I’m sad to say we did miss Teatro San Carlo and decided not to go to the Museo Archeologico di Napoli because we ran out of time!
