Naples

sunny 18 °C

So, as I was planning my backpacking trip I asked people about different cities around Europe that they had been to. One of the cities that was highly debated was Naples. People either LOVED it, or they absolutely HATED it. No in betweens. Well, I belong to the group that ABSOLUTELY HATED it. It was disgusting. Graffiti everywhere. Trash everywhere. Crap everywhere. People in every nook and cranny. It was like the Tijuana of Italy. The only good thing about Naples was the fact that it was super close to Pompeii which was amazing.

This section has old peices of pottery and even a few bosies they found in the hidden city.

Here are some murals they discover while unburrying one of the larger houses

I wandered the nooks and crannies, streets and alleys, and hidden ruins of Pompeii for a good five or six hours and didn't see it all. I was pleasantly surprised at how big the area itself is. Definitely worth the trip out there.

As for Naples, I was only there for a day and a half. One day of which I was in Pompeii, so that half a day of wandering the Neopolitan streets was more than enough for me!

Next stop: Venice, Italy
