Help Barbara Kossy with their list: Sun! Naples, Capri and the Amalfi Coast
I'll be in Naples and environs for 10 days, so I'll have plenty of time to explore. Do you know of an eccentric or off-beat attraction? Restaurant? Store? I'm looking for the un-usual.
From the trip, Sun! Naples, Capri and the Amalfi Coast
Head up the hill to Vomero for a different side of Naples (literally). It's up in the hills, so you'll have to take the funicolare or the underground to get up.
This is THE cafe in Naples, apparently.
The best sfogliatelle in Naples.
Great place for live jazz and a drink.
Another great place for sfogliatelle. This place is fancier and more expensive than La Sfogliatella Mary.
One of the top three pizzerie in Naples (and thus the world).
CHEAP pizza to go.
Check out the Sansevero Chapel Museum (Capella Sansevero) for an unusual attraction. The church features the Veiled Christ and a number of other strange and intriguing artistic pieces. I haven't been here, but even my friend who grew up in Naples thought it was a strange attraction.
Hey Barbara, have you been to Ischia? They have these really cool hot springs in the ocean, plus interesting green stone buildings...it's gorgeous and less touristy than Capri. I wish I had a secret mozzarella place to tell you about, but that's my other thing in Naples and south...eat as much mozzarella as possible and check to see where it's made on the day. Sooo good! Have a wonderful trip!
