SECOND PART OF THE POST CONTAINS SOME ROMAN EROTIC ART WORKS. POSSIBLY Not Safe For Work.
We drove into Naples, parked in the port, and walked a couple kilometers to the Naples National Archaeological Museum. Naples is over 2,800 years old and constantly lives in the shadow and threat of the volcano. Naples itself is a very very very dirty and dingy city. Graffiti covers EVERYTHING, even monuments and government buildings. Its definitely not a very touristy place, but can be interesting to explore and the museum is a definite must. The museum contains a large collection of Roman artifacts from Pompeii, Stabiae and Herculaneum. It also has the famous Secret Cabinet, a collection of Roman erotic art. When these works were cataloged in the 18th century, they were deemed obscene and pornographic, and locked away. The secret room was only re-opened in 2005.

Roma and Natalia are world travelers, photographers, and an all around fun couple. When they are not travelling far away continents or driving around USA in their trusted Highlander, they can be found in San Francisco, California.
