Naples – Excursion Day 1

While in Spain we took two days and hit Naples.

View of Italy as we approached Naples.

We had three great experiences in Italy, which we will get to, but Naples itself was a sh*t hole. Sorry to be so blunt, but the city was crazy dirty. I don’t think anyone know how to pick up after their dogs. Literally, dog sh*t everywhere. The city was really a let down.

So what did we do in Italy that we did like?

In the morning after we landed we went to the Catacombs of San Gennaro. Our tour guide was amazing, and you could tell he had so much passion about his subject matter.

The catacombs lie under the Rione Sanità neighborhood of Naples, sometimes called the “Valley of the Dead”. The crypts date back to the 3rd-4th century, and eventually held two saints. The tour is just about an hour long, and it honestly is a must see site if you are going to Naples.
