I never spent longer than 30 minutes in Naples prior to this trip; however that 30 minutes did yield one of he scariest cab rides I’ve ever taken! Since Bethany and I were on a quest to have the best pizza in Naples, we got to spend more then 30 minutes in Naples this time. We spent a whole afternoon eating pizza, walking around the streets, trying deserts, going into churches, and seeing castles; all thanks to our hosts Dario and Katrina. They used to live in Naples, so it was a real treat to walk around with people who knew the city. Naples is one of those cities that is very easy to be intimidated by, and having a local show you around brings that intimidation factor down. In fact, I now think of Naples as a cute little kitten as opposed to the man-eating lion I vision I had from my previous visit.
The streets were filled with people and traffic was horrible, so we were better off on foot. Thanks to our slow walking pace we were able see and photograph some cool sites such as this tree mixed in with graffiti art (my favorite tree ever by the way). I would have loved to spend more time there and explore the narrow laundry lined streets and allies. The streets looked like a giant Christmas tree with lights and decorations strung from branch to branch in the form of laundry.
I’ve still only barely scratched the surface of Naples, but now since it’s a fuzzy little kitten in my mind, I think I’ll be planning a trip back!
