Central Napoli

Over to Naples, to see the Chiesa di San Domenico Maggiore, the gorgeous Cappella Sansevero
and its wonderful collection of statuary - and whatever else we stumbled upon....

On the way up from the harbour, Castel Nuovo - and a sight of Roman warehouses and
port buildings, unearthed during construction of the new Piazza Municipio metro station.

From there, on the R2 bus to Piazza Garibaldi, and a first stop on Via Annunziata, where
the 'Sacra Ruota degli Esposti' - the Holy Wheel of the Neglected (or 'Put Out') - is
set in the wall of a former C14th convent, attached to the Basilica dell'Annunziata.
