When we visit a country for the first time, it's for the likes of Eiffel and Colloseum and Mt.Titlis etc, so basically all the must do attractions of the place. And if we are privileged enough, we get a second chance, and this time we go for what we want out of that place and trust me , the number of times even for one country is never enough.
So, on the third attempt, Italy started singing "Benvenuto" tunes from it's Southern part. Decided and done - Napoli and the gorgeous Amalfi coast.

We opted for Freciorosa which is a faster option.

Napoli Centrale, is a very busy train station. It's a connecting hub to all classes of transport and just as you step down, you get the Naples vibe - CHAOS 😍
Be ready: Language. So people in Rome and Venice have been very tourist friendly for generations. But in South Italy, you realise a change on that front as well. But hey, we are all human and no language is greater than that I think. So we had a bit of a glitch, when our Airbnb accomodation was cancelled at the last moment by the host, and he also wrote a comment in Italian 🙂 So, we did all the WiFi borrowing, and a tad of frustration , finally we found something in our budget. And this was on booking.com
