I think the best way to visit Naples is having somebody from the place to tour you around the city. I didn’t waste our time and though it was just a day trip, we were able to see some important landmarks of the city. Like the churches of San Gennaro, Santa Filomena, piazzale Largo San Martino e most of all…to finally visit the city of Pompei. I was not really prepared to see a city destroyed by a violent eruption of a volcano but what I saw left me with mixed emotions.

The following pictures are from the archeological site of the ancient Roman city of Pompei:
Oh! Aside from the breathtaking view of Naples, the coastline and Mt. Vesuvio from “Piazzale Largo San Martino, you can also find shops where you can buy handmade “Cameos”. Honestly, I am quiet worried for all those who are living very near the volcano!
Traveling is really a very good way to learn deeper about places and its people. Often, prejudiced opinions written or said has the power to discourage anyone but surely, for me, one of the best ways to understand and see reality is experiencing or seeing it with my own eyes, not through the eyes or experiences of someone else.
