Ho Ho to Posillipo

A morning tour on one of the CitySightseeing open-top buses; westwards out along the Naples
coastline, passing through Chiaia, Mergellina and Marechiaro, to Posillipo - and back again.
.
Lazily, we took advantage of their shuttle to go from the port up to their base - near the
Castel Nuovo - although it's only a short walk, along which there are some great views down
into the archaeological dig, where excavations for a new Metro station have led to more and
more of the ancient Roman harbour being unearthed (still ongoing, as of February 2013)
.
