archaeology, art and streetlife in napoli

Naples napoli neapel italy travel wanderlust
I say this about almost every Italien city, but Napoli is one of my favourites. It is so crowded and dirty and beautiful and artsy, it works so well as a whole. Of course the city does have issues with Mafia and co, but as a tourist you do not notice that. So, this is kind of a rose-coloured glasses version, even though I did walk along streets that were not really tourist-streets, too. I had to seperate days there, one with my family, basically walking through most of the city and one on my own, going to the Archaeological Museum.

I do not really like dirty, messy cities – I love them clean and beautiful with old buildings, spick and span. Naples really is the exception – though do not get me wrong. Streets are not stuffed with trash, not at all, it’s more the way a lot of buildings look like they might break any second, how cables connect everything, the building are squeezed next to each other and you might get lost by just doing a wrong turn. I love this.

The first picture was taken inside San Domenico Maggiore, which looks like an old fortress from the outside and is very impressive. Most of the photos however are taken at St. Chiara, a monastery you can visit with a lot of archaeological pieces and lovely tiles, it is so calming and worth visiting. Of course, as a tourist you almost have to get up to St. Elmo to look down on the city and it is very impressive, too.

Maybe one of the things Naples is most famous for is the alleged blood miracle at Duomo di San Gennaro – you might or might not believe in it, but the church is worth having a look. If you are more into history and science, the Archaeological Museum is the place to visit and it was great. There is so much stuff from Pompeii and Herculaneum, but not only, there are more Roman statues and pieces. Though of course I was most excited to see the effigy of a Sappho (actually a pompeiian girl made to like Sappho), and it’s so beautiful! Also, I had some good ice cream at the train station both days.

One of the top destinations on my Europe travel list is – now that I have been to most Scandinavian countries once – Greece. Mainly for cultural reasons, I would love to see Athens and the temples and basically most of the places mentioned in mythology. Of course, this area (Campagnia) has a lot of Greek influences and they built temples in Paestum (then Poseionia). The antique Greek culture was very advanced and still influences us today – after all democracy is a greek idea. The myths survived till today and inspire writers and artists daily.

But, of course antique Greece and Rome were also – especially – famous in the 19th century, as you can see in the literature, art and culture. One of my favourite painters Carl Rottmann went to Greece to paint the landscapes – opposed to many painters who painted Greece based on stories, other paintings and their own fantasy. Which I think is interesting too, I appreciate both ways of painting, but I especially appreciate it, when people take the chance to get to know a place before e.g. painting it (and Rottmann did a fantastic job, look him up, he is amazing).

As I mentioned the idea of Greece not only fascinated artists, but also the general population – of course, those things tend to influence each other. As they tend to have more money, royalty could visit those places more often. For example Sissi (Elisabeth, Queen of Austria in mid 19th century who was almost nothing like the movies of course) took a great interest in seeing these places, and in a way Ravello always reminds of her. Also, since they filmed part of the movie in Ravello at the two famous villas. So while in a way this place made me long for Greece even more, I now more than ever want to see it myself.
As a little note: the hat was made in Greece in the 70s, so I felt like making a dress that would also have this vibe.

Ravello
This is one of the most famous towns along this coast – however most have one thing or another they are known for. Ravello is mainly known for Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo (my photos here are mainly taken on the first). There a lots of small streets and steps, it’s just adorable.

Castellabate
Castellabate is the town in which Benvenuti al Sud (it’s available in German and I think English, too) – it’s beautiful to walk around, like Ravello there are lots of steps and little vias, and of course cars can not get close (though that also means if you use a wheelchair, it might be very difficult). If you get the chance to visit though, just get lost, it’s beautiful – the first picture is the view!

Palinuro
When you get to Palinuro, you will probably do a tour around the grottos and stone formations, last time I went we saw more than one, but might be up to the agency. The water really has that blue colour, it’s stunning.

the ruins of herculaneum and vesuvius

Herculaneum Vesuvius Vulcan archaeology travel italy
Visiting Herculaneum and Vesuvius were the two things I really, really wanted to while being in Campagnia. I have been to Pompeii years ago and I have some weird memories of it that are somewhat intertwined with my memories of the Prater in Vienna – don’t ask, I really do not know why. Anyway, my mum and I went to “the other city”, the less tourist-y one. It was very fascinating to see, especially wince a lot of the wall colour and ornaments are still intact. Of course, it is also very sad/emotional to see a place that was inhabitated once, but hit by such a catasthrope – even though after reading a lot on the subject, I really wonder why people did not leave before the vulvan hit, because there were some obvious signs things would go downhill (and there had been extreme earthquakes before that cause destruction). Therefore I can’t help but wonder – even it such an event was unexpected, some sort of strike of nature was to be expected. Of course, I was not there, so I cannot say what I would have done and it’s always easy to wonder/judge afterwards.

Anyway, apparently most people in Herculaneum managed to escape, nevertheless they had to leave everything behind, lost friends and family members. And still Vesuvius nowadays looks calm and beautiful (some activity is expected in the next years/decades/centuries), I find it fascinating how much this can deceive you. As a Latin student for six years and then an additional seminar for two more) I learnt quite a bit about the time Pompeii and Herculaneum were still inhabitated and how the destruction came to be. However reading some additional books did help of course. It’s also interesting, since the discovery of the cities and the uncovering was also heavily encouraged by 18th/19th century female royality (another favourite subject of mine). The wifes often were more interested than there husbands. One of them was Caroline Murat and I think Maria Karolina (or another daughter of Maria Theresia of Austria who basically said the digs/founds were the only thing keeping her alive).

If you would like to see my take on historically inacurate take on a historic (some weird mixture of 1850s-1950s) female archaeologist, you can find that here. Of course that also means a few more pictures of Herculaneum and Vusuvius.

By the time this day way over, mum and I were really done, I could not recall the code for my phone andymore and her battery was almost dead and we still had to find out how to get home! It was a mess, but even the unfriendly people and the angst could not overshine the wonderful day and the incredibly friendly people that helped us/were friendly (the driver of the shuttle up mount vesuvius, his collagues later, the people at the restaurant, the people working at at digs)…

temples and icecream in Paestum ♥

Paestum Travel Beige Outfit Italy Poseidonia
Today I wanted to share some photos from Paestum. In case you follow me on Instagram you already saw some of them on Instagram. I love archaeology and Greek mythology, so this was a wonderful place to be at. I loved all the beautiful beige stones that tell stories that happened long ago. Paestum was founded by the Greek, named Poseidonia back then (about 600 BC). Due to the fertile soil, they could plant a lot of stuff and got wealthy enough to built those gigantic temples. As with so many place this one got lost and was found again around the same time as Pompeii and Herculaneum (18th century). If you get the chance you should visit the temples of Hera, Poseidon and Athena as well as the museum, they have some fascinating pieces there.

The Heraion is a bit further away, mum and I took the bikes to get there. It’s only a couple of stones/remains, but apparently it was sort of a temple once, too. However the museum they had closed as well which I think is rather sad.

what I got in paestum, napoli and herculaneum

Currently I am working my way through the photos I took in the south of Italy at the end of August/beginning of September. And the easiest to filter though and edit are the things I found and bought. I did not get a lot, but rather collected a couple of nature things/lost items. Also somewhere (probably in the car) there could be a beautiful pine cone. But I yet have to find it again.

Paestum Haul Shopping Napoli Herculaneum Book Jewellery Cameo Gold
In Paestum and at Herculaneum I found these old booklets about historic Italian sites. There is an entire series, but of course they only keep the ones relevant to the particular site at the museum shops. These ones are from the 70s and 80s.

At a music store in Naples (musicanteshop) I found a couple of great postcards and I picked up Pulp Fiction and Star Wars for myself. I just love the designs and that they look like they were produced right after the movies came out.

My mum had to get something for a friend’s kid and Coconudina was the shop for that. However they had belts on sale for about 2 Euros and since they are for kids, I can wear them around the waist. Since I try to incoorporate more belts in my wardrobe, a black one was a must.

I also got this piece, a gold bracelet in a somewhat Roman/Etruscan style and I think they truly captured the Antique feeling.

Lastly, a couple of things people lost, and things I collected – shells, amber, mini pine cones, a piece from Mount Vesuvio, a moth, keys (I guess bike lock), a rose on a pin, a ad and a Albert Einstein e=mc² bracelet. I do not know the stories behind those, but I really like thinking they have great ones.

What do you like to collect, do you keep keepsakes from nature?

A few weeks ago, at the end of July my mum and I went to Salzburg and Gut Aiderbichl because they had a T-Rex skeleton to exhibit. The first couple of photos are from Gut Aiderbichl, a place where they take care of animals that would often be killed otherwise. It is mainly for horses, alpacas, goats and pigs (big/farm animals), but there are also a handful of dogs and cats – the cats have a great set of three big rooms, a garden with a fence and can go anywhere. And of course the T-Rex. What was kind of funny to me is that most people get there using their car – it’s like let’s support nature (animals), but destroy it at the same time (exhaust gas pollution). You can get their by bus and shuttle however like we did, but it is a bit complicated and you should tell the bus driver where you are going, because they will call someone at the Gut. Besides all the animals you can also get something to eat (all vegetarian or vegan) and buy stuff at a flea market (the money earned goes to the animals of course). And I did find some Vinatge books, a vintage camera and posters.

We then wandered through the beautiful city. Not only, but also due to the fantastic food, it’s one of my favourite cities. The café to which I went before is Cafe Classic next to the Mozart Museum. And, if I may say so they have the best Sachertorte there is. Literally no Sachertorte anywhere compares to this. Alongside I recommend Mozart Melange which is coffee with Mozart ball flavour and it is just delicious (and I need this mug). We had dinner at Zum fidelen Affen and it was very tasty as well.
The city is great to explore for a day or two. Even the regular shopping streets are beautiful and historic and I’d highly recommend spending some time there and just wandering around – but you have to stop at Mirabell Castle.

Delicious Bits of Krakow

Currently I have issues blogging – not that I don’t have ideas, or photographs, but rather I don’t find/make the time. Especially now, that I’m also on holiday, I don’t really bother to edit posts. That doesn’t mean, I would not want to. So, here goes, I pulled myself together and edited the delicious meals I had in Krakow! Editing these photos I had food envy (is that a thing in English?) of my past self (the one eating all those treats) and sad I’m not in Krakow right now to eat this stuff all over again.

Discovering Krakow | a few Impressions and a bit of a guide

Krakow Impressions
In July I went to Krakow with a dear friend, it was rather spontanous, but it was a great idea! The city is really lovely and wonderful to explore by foot. We also had fantastic weather, though it was almost too warm. So, today I wanted to share a couple of photos and ideas what to do in Krakow. Of course we also went to Auschwitz and Birkenau, but we considered it inappropriate to take photos and instead just listened to our six hour guide, which was very informative and very well done. The only downside was that there were [understandably] a lot of people and some of them were acting (a bit/very) disrespectful.

Krakow Rynek Sheep

Hołd Pruski by Jan Matejko
The main square, Rynek, is quite beautiful, but tourist-y (in general Krakow is not as full of tourists as Rome or London, but on those main attractions there are still lots of visitors), so if you want to have a quick getaway, you can visit the Gallery of 19th-Century Polish Art in the Sukiennice (Muzeum Narodowe w Krakowie Galeria Sztuki Polskiej XIX wieku w Sukiennicach) on top of the cloth hall. Of course, 19th century art is my favourite and this gallery was really beautiful inside and out. There is also a lovely café (Cafe Szał) on top of those halls, which has a great view over the square, delicious food and drinks and isn’t even crowded with tourists. You get there through the entrance of the museum as well, but you don’t need a ticket for the café.

krakow Bazylika Mariacka
Nearby is also the tower of the town hall (Muzeum Historyczne Miasta Krakowa – Wieża Ratuszowa) which you can climb and gives you a good view over the city too. I’m pretty sure there is a theatre downstairs which sounds wonderful. Another mustsee is the Bazylika Mariacka, a beautiful, extravagant church on the inside and I love those colours. If you want to take pictures, you have to buy a licence though (it’s rather cheap and I think for such a stunning church that is really okay).

Krakow Amber Museum
Amber is really popular in Poland, so there is even an Amber Museum close too the main square (well basically everything is close to Rynek), it’s for free, features some great artwork and you can also buy some beautiful pieces there.

Krakow Kazimierz Streetmarket
One of the most beautiful parts of Krakow is definetly Kazimierz/the Jewish Quarter, it is really calm and besides adorable café there are also lovely streetfood markets around almost every corner. Compared to food at home/in most cities I visited so far it’s very affordable, cheap considering what you get (e.g. freshly made chimney cake with a sort of ice cream, caramel cream and caramel bisquits for 13zl/3€). We also visited a very cute Vintage Store – though there are a lot more cute shops in that quarter, Vintage Classics. They sell both Vintage pieces and pieces made from Vintage fabric (with Vintage cuts), I found two adorable hats there and the sales assistant was too nice. It’s a bit of a long walk toward’s Oskar Schindler factory (especially if you have been walking all day long and have to walk back afterwards), but it adds to the experience.



It would have been a great place to take your bike too, but we only took them riding aroung Planty, the park area and on the day we went to Zakrzówek Lake. It is a bit difficult to get to the place where you are allowed to swim, but it is worth it and the ride is beautiful too. I won’t attempt to explain it, because I’m terrible with directions, but the way along the river and through the woods, maybe even hiking a bit is lovely.

Krakow Collegium Maius

Another highlight for me was Collegium Maius, I mean, I love old universities, but that one was especially beautiful with all the scientific instruments and the amazing ceilings. There are a lot of tours and you can book yours right when you are there. Matching the theme of education, there are lots of antiquarian bookshop all over the city and easy to spot.


Wavel Castle we only managed to look at from the outside (and walk through the fantastic church), because there were so many people waiting in line (at both cash points). Mind you, it was a Thursday and we were rather early, so that was a disappointment. Especially since it is not possible to buy the tickets beforehand, so I don’t know if you want to see the castle, get in line two hours before it opens or something like that.


I really enjoyed Krakow, especially the food (will blog about that too). Have you been there and if so what did you enjoy most?

Apparently, there is this myth about moths being dead spirits. Well vengeful bad spirits, but since I think moths are lovely and beautiful, let’s just say spirits of any kind. I love that idea, moths are mainly found during night time, looking for light, I can imagine them being ghosts of people that passed recently. After all there are even moths with the image of a skull on the back.

Sure, those mainly remind me of Silence of the Lambs, but then again that movie is amazing. I can’t even say if I like the movie or TV show adaptation of Hannibal better. Of course, the TV show has Hugh Dancy and he is literally my favourite male eye candy. And it’s by Bryan Fueller, because he is an amazing show runner (thinking of, I have to continue American Gods). Anyway, I think moths work great with the genre in general, because they have this darkness and calmness at the same time.

Of course, moths also remind me of Animal Crossing, because as a kid I used to play AC in the evening, especially in summer and catching moths was always part of that. By now I also own my own little (or not so little, it’s actually rather big) moth and it looks a lot like the big one in Wild World. So besides me loving moths, and this on being beautiful, that is another plus. You can see it here, by the way.

In a way that also matched the gothic vibes Krakow has to it. However I cannot let this pass without mentioning how AMAZING this chimney cake (it’s actually a Czech thing, but whatever) with caramel cream, a sort of frozen yoghurt/ice cream and my favourite bisquits. Not only does it look like heaven, it was an utter dream come true. That’s probably why I look at it as if it was my one true love or my newborn.
