    Default Neales Italy where to go?

    Hi Folks

    I will very soon spend two weeks in the Napoli area and would like to ask if someone could give me some boat related travel tips.
    Are there some nice places to go to see some traditional boatbuilding, or other maritime places.

    Thanks Max

    Max, we spent 2 weeks there and saw lots of wooden boats at the waterfront. At one spot a boat was also repaired and painted but I did not see actual boatbuilding and did not want to spend time to search. I am sure you will find boatyards if you want to and the whole Golfo di Napoli could make a good place for a rallye if some local would organise it.
    Later we went to Minori on the Amalfi coast and saw some nice double ended (Gonzos?) On the beach. I am sure you will have a good time there. Frank

    I lived in Naples for a number of years. The old downtown has some interesting boats at the waterfront (vicinity of Castel del 'Ovo) and I scuba dived off wooden boats in the Bay many times. But I don't ever recall seeing any real boat building or repair facilities. I only saw one house with a small repair area for row boats in nearby Posillipo (which is a cool little town in it's own right).

    Use good common sense when walking around the old sections of town. It's a wonderful city with many fantastic people - but it's also an easy place to get in trouble if you are not a local. Use good judgement and keep your spider-senses alert and you'll have a good time.
