Today Sarah was talking about a new Neapolitan Pizza place opening up in Dallas. Apparently restaurants have to meet certain requirements to get an official designation of genuine Neapolitan and there aren't many in the US. Of course, I had to boast about having eaten the genuine article in Naples while on our cruise. So, what better inspiration do I need to finally get some Mediterranean Cruise blogging done.
The REAL stuff

Sadly, the rest of Naples did not have much to offer. It is a very neglected city which seems to have the same rich history as the rest of the country but it has been severely mismanaged. We visited a lovely square with a church designed in the style of the Pantheon in Rome. It was deserted and covered in grafitti.

I hope someday the officials in Naples will find a way to clean things up and make the city more marketable to tourists. The pizza alone should be able to draw a big crowd!
