0.04km from Jolly Roger PubWe have been to Italy several times but decided this time to explore the Adriatic coast from Bologna to Lecce and then head across to Napoli for Capodanno (New Years Eve). We could not have been any more fortunate and rewarded than to stay our four nights at Weekend a Napoli with Paolo and Patrizia. One of the things we planned on doing during our four night stay in Naples was to go to Herculaneum. We messaged Paolo regarding some logistics and he gave us a phone call us before we even left Seattle! When we arrived for an early check-in Paolo & Patrizia and their staff were waiting curbside with a warm welcome. They helped us with our luggage, gave us directions to the airport to drop our rental car and arranged a taxi to meet us and bring us back to their place. They have a charming residence with a handful of well-appointed rooms in a gated property that has been in the family for 100 years in the hilltop enclave of Vomero, a short walk to the Castel Sant’Elmo. The interior has a warm elegant feel to the rooms and the sitting areas. There is a strong tradition in Napoli of the Presepe or the Christmas nativity scene and related dioramas. Paolo is an artist that has been creating these for many years and their rooms have many wonderful dioramas enclosed in glass museum cases in the walls. Amazing! There is a wonderful old farmers market just down the street and many stores, restaurants and shopping throughout the adjacent avenues. There is easy access to transportation to all the other areas of Naples. Because it was almost the New Year 2020, the streets were filled with throngs of people for the Christmas markets and holiday festivities. So much fun especially the people watching! Paolo and Patrizia spent a lot of time orienting us to Naples in the surrounding neighborhood. They graciously booked restaurants for dinner each evening and suggested and made reservations at nearby restaurant for a great multi-course evening for the Cenone di Capodanno. It was great to be able to spend time conversing with them to get an insight into the people and culture of Napoli. They both were so warm and generous with their time. Loved our stay at Weekend a Napoli and loved the city of Naples! We will be back.
