Day 5: To Napoli

This was a slow day because I was feeling under the weather–jet lag, food poisoning, or something. 

Left the apartment just after 9 am to go to Orly airport, a 35 minute drive. The airport is relatively small but very busy with European flights.

Our two hour 10 minute flight landed 10 minutes early. We dodged the unofficial drivers offering us a ride and took a taxi to our hotel. The sky was grey.

Our hotel is near the port. 

It’s relatively new having been converted from a shipping office by a Japanese designer, which I think explains some of the curious decor elements.

It started pouring rain so we decided not to wander outside.  We checked out the rooftop bar, which is covered. There’s a heated pool which had a surprising number of people in it even once it started raining.

Early dinner, then early to bed.
