Just returned from Naples (it's 16:06, flight arrived 13:24!) for the second time, and again, i'm gob-smacked. Naples is dirty, loud, alien but 100% amazing. This time we went to sorrento on the Amalfi Coast which was beautiful, however I believed that it was a little too touristy. I've always loved Naples itself, it has so much about it, people aren't bowing at your feet trying to cater to your every need, they're simply living their lives as they want. The transport system looks a bit daunting at first, but it's easy as pie! The easiest way is this if you're only going to be travelling within naples itself you should buy a UnicoNapoli ticket. Just go to the blue machines (you can select english under the Lingue section) on most stations and select the all day ticket (weekend ticket is for Sat. & Sun. but is only ONE day not the whole weekend!). it's 3 euros. Then simply hop on a bus or metro and voila! your'e there. Remember though, the ticket is not valid unless you put it into the grey and yellow machines on the bus or platform. If however you are traveling outside of Naples city (for example Pompei or Sorrento) , then you can buy exactly the same card but the UnicoCampania, which allows travel in the whole of Campania, this ticket is slightly more (not exactly sure how much at the mo though!). Then get on the train (e.g. the Circumvesuviana) and you're away!. Oh and by the way, if your feeling like a nice little walk, try getting the Metro to Mergellina, walking to the harbour then turn right. Keep walking and you will find the Funicolare to Vomero, Take it up and then you can walk around vomero for a while. There is quite a few shops and bars up there, and some of the views are fantastic. Then take the funicolare centrole (or something like that!) to toledo, heading right to Plebstico. There is a lift here that takes you to Via. Acton. From there you can take a tram up the road, with it finally stopping at piazza Garabaldi. It is a really nice trip, and some of the sights are beautiful. Well, sorry about the essay. Hope You all enjoy/enjoyed Naples!
