Weekend breaks to Naples
If you have ever considered travelling to Naples for a weekend break, you probably were thinking about the two things it is most famous for: pizza and Pompeii. The Neopolitan pizza, or rather the pizza with anchovies on it, is the kind of pizza that people either love or hate. Equally, Pompeii explosion and the encasement of the surrounding areas in dust and mud has been the subject of many television programs, school research papers and novels. What you may not know is that Naples is also the birthplace of ragu spaghetti sauce and a form of making coffee that inspired the Moka pot. Outside of gastronomics, the city also boasts several historic sites, including palaces, churches and piazza. Most of these places are located in the city centre. Alongside the World Heritage sites, you will find one of the best archaeological museums in Naples and good theatre. All in all, it is a great place to go for a weekend break.
Weekend trips to Naples Made Easy
Being able to relax on your weekend trip is often contingent upon finding affordable and reasonable overnight accommodation. Nothing ruins a weekend break faster than a dirty hotel or the bottom of your pocket book. If you are looking for a little adventure, it might be time to forgo the entire hotel and hostel experience and opt to stay with locals. Not only can they advise you about places to see but you will also save a little money. Plus, at Wimdu we feel that making connections with people abroad gives you a better sense of the place you are staying with. Some people are content to have their weekend breaks be solely a time for tourist activities but if you yearn for something more make your weekend trip end with a stay with a local. You can then have the best of both worlds, the tourism and the local culture on your next weekend trip.
