...to the impossibly tiny:
The building itself is impressively gorgeous; it was a palace for the Bourbon king.
One of the main attractions is the stunning collection of mosaics taken from Pompeii:
|This mosaic from the House of the Faun in Pompeii depicts Alexander the Great--it's 20 square meters and was made around 100 B.C.|
|A closeup from The Battle of Alexander Against Darius (above)|
After we left the museum, it was approaching lunchtime, so we wandered through the historical center of Naples, taking in the chaos and looking for authentic Neapolitan pizza. I'm tired and don't feel like writing any more tonight, so we'll pick back up there tomorrow :)
