Yup, I've been there too, and on the same trip I visited Pompeii. I made the connection between the two cities easily, but clearly people living
there just don't...weird. If there was a city that had been buried in ash just down the road from me, and I was living in a place packed like
sardines at the foot of the same volcano that stil blow several times a century...well, I wouldn't be living there long.
I was totally shocked at how cramped and overbuilt Naples is, and almost more worryingly, there don't seem to be too many decent roads out, so if
they did get a little bit of warning, the rush to evacuate might be the first nightmare. I've visited a couple of volcanic sites, and the energy they
have scares me. Vesuvius was bad, like some kind of malevolence waiting to show, but Mount Rainer was much worse...didn't like that one at all. Real
anger just below the surface. Just my opinion though!
