Naples – A Pretty Perfect Rainy Day In Old Napoli

“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.” Hans Hofmann

I arrived in Naples late at night and had Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra playing on my ipod.  After a good night’s sleep I headed out to see the sights in the city.  I was pretty blown away by the San Severo chapel and the incredible art pieces inside.  Unfortunately, they were ultra strict about cameras so I don’t have anything to show you. But the website is here.

After that, I wandered around for a while and finally booked a tour of the Naples underground for about $10.  It was pretty amazing to walk through huge caverns under the city where people hid during the world wars.

From there, I headed over to the National Archaelogical Museum to check out many of the ruins from Pompeii and the other parts of the area.  And finally I made my way through the rain to Da Michelle Pizza for some of the touted original Margherita style pizza.  I discovered later that this is the place referenced in the book and movie “Eat, Pray, Love”.  I ordered up a pizza and thoroughly enjoyed the indulgence.

And here are some photos from my wonderful day in Napoli.
