Naples, Florida to Naples, Italy

Posted on: 5.22.2014

On our Italian honeymoon, after visiting Florence, we spent one night in Naples, Italy on our way to the Amalfi Coast.  There was a fair going on near our hotel so we checked it out and then had a pizza and white wine for dinner.  It was a fun evening and our hotel had an amazing view of Mount Vesuvius!
