We stayed in a lovely 4* hotel called Hotel Poseidon, located on the bay with amazing views of the fishing docks and sea (if you were lucky enough to be located on the 4th floor), we were on the first floor, with a view of a lovely construction site but it didn’t really matter as we didn’t spend a lot of time at the hotel.
Torre Del Greco is a great place to stay if you want to avoid the hustle and bustle (not to mention tourist prices) of central Naples, yet still want to be close to tourism sites such as Pompeii, Sorrento and the city Museums. The majority of the town is located on a hillside, with the main train station being about 10-15 mins up a steep hill, which was good for me (And the calves, LOL) as it sorta justified the amount of pizza we ate, which in itself was justified – if you’re going to visit the birthplace of Pizza, you may as well eat ALL THE PIZZA.
We visited the Napoli city centre via the Circumvesuviana train, a specialised train network that services most towns from Naples city centre (Garibaldi Station) to Sorrento. A return ticket costs about 2.50 Euro each which is pretty damn amazing – to be honest, most of the barriers at the stations were either already open or faulty so I’m pretty sure a lot of people travel for free.99 over there anyway! The city centre of Naples is full of gorgeous baroque architecture, pizzerias, museums and your typical high street shops – the Metro and (most of) the buses are easy enough to navigate and it was nice to see how lovely their underground system is aesthetically, random I know, but it really is!
|6 Euros guys! *cries*|
