Hello! Looks like my post last week worked! It’s finally sunny! Even if it doesn’t last, it’s nice for a while! 🙂

Due to it being Easter weekend, there’s not so much happening, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still great things for you to do, including #domenicaalmuseo, on Sunday 5th April, the monthly day of free entry to all state-run museums and archaeological sites etc.

You can also catch up with the month’s events, and what’s coming up, with Bonnie‘s ‘From the Editor’s Desk: Naples Monthly Roundup‘.  Bonnie also gives suggestions for a typical Easter meal, with the recipes, so even if you can’t make it to Naples, you can still feel like you have this great city near you!
