Italy Part 1: Naples

I’ve had a half-started post about Naples open for over a week.  Clearly I’m not doing a great job of telling the story of my trip, so I’m going to let the pictures do that.  It was the last part of my Italy trip, but one of the most exciting.  I was really looking forward to eating pizza where it all began!  Naples is safe enough.  There are sketchy people, but friendly people too!  I traveled alone and pretty much always felt fine.  Pompeii was boring.  The gelato was good, not as good as in Rome.  You should go and eat the pizza.  Or better yet, the pizza fritta.  The pizza was delicious, but nothing you couldn’t get at a good Neapolitan pizza place in New York or New Jersey.  Still worth the trip.

The pizza!! From L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele. Sorbillo was closed for Pasquetta, so I can’t compare, but it was good!

Necessary gelato. From this place called Gay-Odum that the tour guide recommended. Decent gelato, really cranky lady working there.

Naples panorama. Pop up fair, gorgeous red clay tennis courts, a cruise ship and mountain (volcano?) in the distance.

What’s the craziest trip you’ve taken just to eat the regional food?
