Can’t think of another way to describe this city. There’s an amazing amount of graffiti, but some fun murals too. They could use more trash cans and learn to pickup after their dogs. The motor bikes are another thing all together.
They haven’t carted everything away to museums. It is great to see things in situ.
It seemed like every other corner in Herculean had a little restaurant. Plates were warmed over hot water in these vessels.
With Vesuvius in the background beyond the modern city.
We aren’t quite sure what is going on here. There’s music – mostly the same tune, lots of embroidered banners, a “float,” and lots of to and fro. Over two days, we’ve seen a number of these small processions.
In the museum at Paestum there are several stunning frescos from grave sites.
Paestum was inhabited for many centuries. The most impressive remains include three large temples.
Took a hike and found this lovely setting, complete with a friendly grey cat.
The coast here is much less crowded than the Amalfi coast, but just as beautiful. We enjoyed a wonderful seafood lunch at a family owned restaurant overlooking this small harbor. The people in the south are delightful.
Bascilicata has a tiny stretch of coast, but it’s gorgeous! This is the view from the terrace of our apartment. Looks like we’re going to have nice weather here too!!
