Honeymoon day 6: Naples

Best advice I can give on Naples (this was also the advice I was given and it held true). If you go on a cruise that stops there, do not stay within Naples. Explore the surrounding areas, they are beautiful! Naples is dirty dirty and more dirty. I'm also surprised the port can handle large cruise ships with how tiny it was. Now that that is out of the way...

We chose a half day excursion to Sorrento. So cute! Here are some pictures from our drive there (they are from the bus so they are not the best).

Sorrento was such a cute little town. Definitely a great weekend visit if you are live in the area.

Frank and our tour guide got a long great, they both loved cars and motorcycles. Our guide was also a bit excited that we live near Fuji speedway so Frank talked about that a bunch with him. An added bonus, he was also the funniest guide we had our whole cruise.
After our time in Sorrento was up we headed back to the port. We decided to find this mall in Naples in hopes of doing some more shopping. There is a reason I have no more pictures to share. There was nothing I wanted to take a picture of! We ended up never finding the mall and after dodging tons of garbage walking in circles we decided to head back to the boat instead. I don't think Naples will ever be an option for orders, but if it ever was we would never go into the city. So many beautiful areas surrounding. One day I would love to visit the Amalfi Coast and Capri.
So that is my advice: Stay out of Naples.
