Uptown, downtown #4

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

When you visit Naples - and you will ;-) - do not expect me to chauffeur you around town. I have a life, people, I am much too busy: the alligator needs his teeth flossed (there are bits of turtle stucked between them), the snake has to be oiled for easier slithering, the lizard needs his claws clipped and the anhinga has to be towel dried (poor thing can't take off).

So I offer you an alternative solution. Take the 2 hour sightseeing tour on the Naples Trolley.
This is just one of their many stops throughout the city. See the best of Naples on board a vintage trolley and enjoy their fully-narrated tour, covering over 100 points of interest.

Then give me a call, and we'll do lunch...

Your alligator has to offer all its teeth to pay for the dentist here.

Some six months ago I posted pictures of our friendly crocodile, perhaps in Blunt knife.

As Vickie was boarding the plane, she said to the flight attendant, "Do these things crash very often?"

The attendant replied, "No, just once!"

c'est pas gentil, si on passe à Naples, tu nous offres meme pas une glace et un petit bout de ton temps...je vais bouder...
cela doit etre sympa de visiter la ville cet ancien chariot...
si tu viens à Evry, tu feras la meme chose..............mais à pied ;o)


it is not nice, if one passes to Naples, you us offers same step an ice and a small end of your time… I will be sulky...
that must be sympathetic to visit the city this old carriage...
if you come in Evry, you will make the same thing .............. but with foot ;O)

OOOOOOOHHHHH a red convertible...

I like the flower basket, too. Ours are still going, but not for long with the lower temperatures in the evenings now.

I know another Tour Guide in Naples who makes her groups WALK everywhere, so a Trolley Tour would be most welcome.
What's for lunch?

Hey!!! I jumped onto ur blog from Rauf's and am glad I did..Naples is not far from my place, Tampa and i sure intend to chk out the place sooner or later!!! Ur blog should come handy :)...went thro' most of ur older posts and u really seem to have an eye for gators, lizzards and snakes.......:)

Victoria said...

What a lovely vibrant scene! Plus we got links to the really important things--the reptiles (and the wayward anhinga)!

Always the best way to view a new town or city. Take the top of the bus tour, then go back later to the bits you liked best.

Lunch sounds good....

When I clicked Naples, I was just thinking to say to you, that I am coming there because we have also this evening like in Siberia and when we say like Siberia, it means - windy, cold and snow is coming horizontally ( ? ) against your face, but when I saw your post and how busy your are, I have to take a second thought.
I am starring those colorful flowers in the photo and when I will wake tomorrow, snow has gone
and daffodils are blooming here . . . We will see :)

Monica said...

I want to take the tour, and I want to see the 100 spots and I want to have lunch over Il Posto Cafe and I want to visit the lovely Third Street and... I could go on forever!

pastorrick said...

I love to take sight seeing-tours of new cities I visit. When I come I will be sure to look them up.

GMG said...

Thanks for the tip. Do you have any idea where may we rent the red convertible? :)

Frank said...

As long as it's not that "6-hour Tour" you wanted us to take with Gilligan!

I guess the stork is the middle child because he isn't getting enough attention. No wonder it isn't bringing you any delivery. :-)

Crikey, Isabella,
It's a wonder you are still alive !!
You wouldn't need a zoo in Naples, the wildlife is everywhere.
A beautiful sunny shot with NO man-eating reptiles. Whewwwwww !!

Beautiful shot - love all the color. But if you are not going to chauffeur me around town, I'm not coming!

At least, not today.
