Today we had another (deliberately planned) lazy morning, got ready and got to the central station in Naples just before midday… Only to find the service workers there were on strike until just after 1pm and there were no other ways for us to buy the tickets we needed.
We therefore decided to explore the shops in the station and get some lunch to kill some time before getting the train.
Also we found a whole crowd of decorated Mickey Mouse’s in the middle of the station – so cute and reminded us of our Disney trip in Paris!
Our platform was completely packed of people wanting to go to Herculaneum/Pompeii/Sorrento! Eventually, after a very hot but not too long train journey, we arrived at “Ercolano Scavi” and were very happy to get off the train!
There were even skeletons left in what would have been the boat houses from the people who would’ve gone there to hide and shelter when Versuvius began to erupt which was really sad and slightly creepy.
After a shorter, more pleasant journey back we were happy to get back to the apartment and decided to watch a film. Then cooker some more pasta, of course, and face timed our families.
We have really enjoyed having some more relaxed times in Naples after a busy 2 and a half weeks – made even better by having our own apartment!
We are now going to bed ready for a new city tomorrow!
