Pio Monte della Misericordia

This small church around the corner from the Duomo holds one of Naples greatest treasures, Caravaggio’s Seven Works of Mercy (1607). Based on the Seven (Christian) Corporal Works of Mercy, it is considered one of the most important religious works of art of the 17th century.

See Todd Williamson’s ‘MERCY’ on display – see below.

Baia Castle

Perched on a steep cliff, Baia Castle, as it is known, was thought to be the summer residence of Julius Caesar. Archeologists, however, theorize that the villa actually belonged to Emperor Nero. Whatever the truth, by the late 15th century the Aragonese built a castle above the ancient Roman ruins and the fortress became an outlook point designed to scare pirates away from the shores.

Visit on Sunday 22nd with GAN – see below.

Fritto Misto alla Napoletana is one of our Bonnie’s favourite antipasti to order. Each restaurant has their own specialties, but generally you will find golden brown fried rice balls – the Arancini – the torpedo shaped Crocchè di Patate, and triangular “carriages” – the Mozzarella in Carrozza – fried spears or rounds of zucchini and eggplant and of course, a few Pizzette Fritte.  Topping it all off, misshapen blobs of Pasta Cresciuta, plain, di Alghe, di Fiori di Zucca, or some other delight.
