We didn't start the day fast, but we definitely saw amazing sights today. I would say that that was all we wanted to see anyway. My feet are telling me so ;)
|Here we are waiting for our pizza and salad at a restaurant in a port dock for cruise ships.|
Before lunch, we wanted to go shopping. And we wanted to go to an air-conditioned shopping centre, which they don't really do here in Naples, so my mum and Harri thought of going to the shops at the cruise ship port. They had looked at it when researching before we came.
There was many lovely expensive-looking shops, which we bypassed. And then, right at the end of the centre, there was an outlet store. That was what we wanted ;) And, my goodness, the bags and shoes inside were amazing!! Soft Italian leather bags, and high wedge shoes :D
After 1 hour, we only left with one pair of Italian leather shoes for Harri!! Mum and I saw so many lovely things, but just did not find the one match for us. A shame, really ...
Out of the port, we headed to the castle of Naples. It was an extremely hot day, and the sun makes us feel drowsy, so we were feeling quite tired, even though we hadn't done much!! Shopping must take up a lot of energy ;)
|The entrance to Castel Nuovo.|
|View from the castle looking out over the peninsula of Sorrento. As you can see, at the bottom of the image, there are heaps of mopeds. This is the moped country, and small cars, which makes sense with all the small roads, which I will show later.|
After this we met with my dad, who had left early from his conference (He had already given his part, and he didn't like the university because there was no air-conditioning). He was hot, and we were hot, so we all had some gelato before deciding what to do together. I had strawberry gelato, which tasted like sorbet. It was super refreshing!!
|View of Mount Vesuvius.|
|Another view of Vesuvius. Here Harri was beginning to take a panorama shot.|
|Here we all are with Vesuvius in the background.|
After a little while of walking along the coast, we made a split decision to eat dinner at one of the restaurants along there.
