Ciao dall'Italia! (Hello from Italy!)

Viaggiamo a Napoli. (We are traveling to Naples.) My father said if you could drive in Naples, you could drive anywhere in the world. We lived there when I was a very young girl. The city itself is not one of the more exciting Italian places to visit (or live) but it is very close to several impressive, and 'must-not-miss' hot spots. (No pun intended.) Naples rests in the shadow of Mt. Vesuvius, the only active volcano to still exist in Western Europe. It's eruption in 79 A.D. buried the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, and today, both are definitely worth exploring. You can take a peek at Archaeology's Interctive Dig.

Vesuvius can be seen in the distance beyond Naples

My wayward great-grandfather who left my great-grandmother when she was 6 months pregnant was guessed it, Naples! I enjoyed this glimpse of it through your eyes.
