Corso Umberto I
I checked out from my hostel in Napoli Mergellina and brought my luggage to the station and left it at the left luggage office. Then i headed to the center - to discover all those places i didn't manage on the previous day.
It was really another strange experience of the life in Napoli. Now i know exactly why my italian friends from northern parts of Italy warned me from coming here hahahaha
But it's an interesting stay here in the south...
I was walking the Via Umberto I then turned to Duomo and visited cathedral, which is really pretty, meanwhile i saw how the bus driver tryed to go through wrong parked cars, was swearing and scriming laudly - he was using probably the worse words , which i didn't know, cuz in the local dialect but finally he could go through.

Then i turned again in order to get some real everydays life shots and i was lost in the mess of narrow streets, mostly very dirty and dark, but there was the life as well, so i didn't mind and was going forward. There were many small shops and bars, in one of them i drang very good coffe. Some of these strrets served as a local market with any kind of food. I bought some fruits for my journey home and tryed to go down toward the port. Then i was suddenly at the university (that's why i know there is not toilet paper even in this place hahahahaha - look the 'contras' on my previous entry). Next stop was port and the castle there, Piazza Plebiscito with the royal palace and back to Via Toledo.
the time was running so fast and i had to go back to get the plane on time.

I choosed metro to go to the station - took my luggage and went to the airport bus.
Now - after few minutes of bus ride i was in wonderful place - maybe the most clean place in the entire Napoli - airport! And its toilets were even cleaner hahahaha! (But don't get too happy - there was no toilet paper even here in this 'place of miracles' LOL)

The plane was late, some germans kids on their school travel were going home to Berlin - making it impossible to sleep on the plane, but first we got a wonderful view from the aircraft just after take off - we were flying over the city around Vesuvio! And i could look inside the crater! This was really nice surprise and a pretty unexpected nice end of the Italy trip!
