Despite all the pictures we took, we spent less than six hours in Napoli. Around five in the afternoon on Saturday - covered in sweat and smog and urban dust - we got the car and drove an hour north up the coast, to Gaeta, the little town where we wanted to have dinner and spend the night.
After some bad planning on our part, and for a while being afraid we wouldn't have a place to stay, a nice lady at a tourist office found us a charming B&B (with a beautiful garden and a pool) and even made reservations for us in a delicious seafood restaurant.
Then the next morning we drove eight kilometers further up the coast to Sperlonga, a beautiful little cliff-top town, with a stunning jewel-toned beach underneath, where we spend the morning and early afternoon walking around the historic center and lying on the white hot sand, before driving back to Rome after lunch.
At the risk of sounding like a spoiled brat, I wish my beach house looked like this and the seaside around here were just a beautiful. Not that I should really be complaining :)
