Oh, the romance of Italy and the prettiness of the landscape I saw back in 2001 is still in the air but sadly, I have to say it is not in Naples…
We arrived here, in Naples, on May 07, 2013. The first thing I noticed of course were the piles of garbage all over the places, the city containers over floated with debris, etc..
To each city its own problem, I have seen it all but again, everything I see is relatively attached to my personal tolerance to the human race!
Sadly, Naples is no longer a pretty and romantic part of Italy. Schools are filled up to the windows with trash and health implications are becoming an even greater issue.
Naples is no longer what it once was, and it could be awhile till it gets back to a destination point for tourists who come from all over to enjoy the world-famous pizza.
Naples, a city that was once known for their mouth-watering and delectable pizza, is now known for their trash-filled and unsanitary atmosphere.
Each weekend, we go by public transportation here and there, inside the walls of this historic city, like here, we walked to the Napoli Sotterranea Acquedotto, to visit the underground Greco-Romano archeologyco site. It was a wonderful visit, a time traveling back, trying very hard to look for history and passion but it takes a wiliness to do so as every step we take has to be calculated for not stepping into something on the ground.
