The arrival to Naploli from Roma was eye opening. There is a big difference between these two cities. Sam & I left the termini, and waited in the fast moving line for a taxi to our airbnb. The line of taxis was at least 60 cars deep. Insane. A small Italian man came up to… Continue reading Oh, Napoli.
