Well today we decided on a tour of Naples (Giovanni's walking tour) but as we (us two and the two Canadians) attempted to polish off 5ltrs of white wine (10 euros for 5 litres!!) last night we were very slow on the up and go! We made it to the Naples Archelogical museum which holds all the expensive and important artifects from Pompeii and Hercaleum (another city which was covered in the ash/mud) it was an interesting museum until we were informed by "Rick Steve" to ask for the secret room we thought we were being naughty asking for the secret room but there was actually a sign that advertises the secret room so we didnt feel so special. We made it inside the secret room which is actually a room filled with ANCIENT PORN!!!! all the statues had massive erect peepee's, there were 3somes going on, women on women you name it it was there!! we couldnt stop laughing (and yes we got quite a few photos) All this was recovered from Pompeii
We spent a long time in this museum and we all needed a feed so we headed back to Gino's for one last amazing pizza!! We missed out on the rest of Naples so we'll definitely have to make another trip back! We headed off (With Giovanni being upset he hates the goodbyes) and made it to the metro.... being informed that there was a STRIKE damn italian transport is as bad as SYDNEYS!! we grabbed a taxi (10 euro) to the main train station and after running from platform to platform for 2 hrs (the trains were showing up on the main board as it was coming in and when we reached the platform only the ghosts must have seen these trains as they didnt show!!) we were panicking as we needed to get 30kms away to get the train to the ferry (luckily in strikes only the eurostar trains run yes the ones you have to pay EXTRA for) so we convinced a taxi driver to take us (60 euros later) and after a hectic crazy taxi ride (going 140km's on the freeway and running red lights, undertaking and overtaking ) we made it 2 mins before the train came!!!! and made it to the ferry!!!!
The ferry is actually a small cruise ship with a casino, restaurants and duty free shopping we had an airseat being 1st class eurail holders but 2nd class sleep on the floor! we were exhausted so we actually got some sleep for dinner we ate tuna sandwiches and toblerone. Yummy.
Till the next entry in Greece....
