After we left Tuscany, our ship docked in Rome -- We stayed on board that day. The next day we docked in Naples and decided to walk the city on our own -- searching for the pizza mentioned in Eat, Pray, Love that the author raves about.
It began cloudy, but the sun peaked through a couple of times. We couldn't understand why all the streets were roped off. A man stopped us to tell us where we could walk -- people there were so very kind -- they would just come up to us and share their favorite parts of the city. Anyhoodle (as my friend Jay would say), it turns out Naples was hosting a marathon. It was fun being in the middle of all this commotion. We really felt more like Napalitanos than tourists.
This is the famed Spanish sector.
An Italian dog-walker...
We finally found the pizza place: L'Antica Pizzeria Da Michele. It was good, but not the best we've ever had.
One of the many beautiful churches we visited.
After walking for three hours, the ship was a welcome sight! Time for the hot tub!!!
