May is For Monuments!!!

Last weekend I got to know Naples in a way that was pleasantly entertaining and educational. I have lived here for 16 years but have never taken the time to discover Naples as the Neapolitans do. I am not talking about Capri, Ischia, or Pizza Margherita. I signed up for one of the tours that Naples has to offer for their annual Maggio dei Monumenti. Five iteneraries, guided tours in English, and all for free! All you need to do is sign up by phoning or emailing the appropriate number or address for the tour you are interested in. The tours take place Friday through Sunday and are well worth it. Yesterday, I was on a tour that lasted about 3 1/2 hours. We went to 2 castles, 2 piazzas, and 7 churches. My guide was a fountain of knowledge on Naples history, art, and architecture. for info on the tours, check out www.comune.napoli.it
