From Rome to Naples
Posted by Andy Steves in on September 14, 2011.
When the alarm rang at 6:15 am, I was so tempted to press snooze. We had been up until 1:30 the night before planning trips to Vienna, Brussels, Milan and other exotic places in Europe. Rather than continue to sleep longer, I hopped out of bed with a jolt of excitement. Today, I was going to the Amalfi Coast!
We walked an hour to through Rome before we arrived at the train station. With only a little time to spare, we found our station and boarded the train for Naples. Before arriving in Naples, I thought Rome was a hectic and crazy city. Naples was unlike any European city I had ever been to – the city was dirty, crowded, and congested to the extreme.
In Naples, we made our way through the city to a supposedly delicious pizzeria: L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele. Only a humble sign marked the spot of this famous pizzeria. When I opened the door, an aroma of melted mozzarella, warm crust, basil, and tomatoes fill the air around me. L’Antica Pizzeria only served two types of pizza: Pizza Margarita and Pizza Marinara.
Travel Tip: The train trip from Rome to Naples is easy and can cost anything from 10 euros to 45 euros, depending on the type of train and the time. For more information visit: http://www.trenitalia.com/
Andy and his crew were awesome. They helped us navigate the city and showed us its innumerable historic sites (Colosseum, Vatican, Trevi Fountain, etc.) with the option of going to Easter Mass at the Vatican if you pick the right weekend. All I have to say was that being in the third row at...Joshua Dyer, Bridgewater State University ~ University of Limerick, Spring 2016
