"Can you believe that a statue was moved around as history demanded another site to suit the whims of the leaders of the day. The Neptune Statue in Naplesí via Medina has stood tall and grand, in several sites around the city, since it was first built in the 1500s to a Giovanni da Nola design. Itís been repaired, added on to and shifted to avoid enemy fire from Naples harbour and to protect it during major uprisings. Nowadays you can sit in the cafes on the nearby Piazza Municipio or use seating in the pedestrian area around the huge, impressive grey statue with a figure of Neptune proudly standing at the top. Photographers will be pleased to capture this for their travel albums. We didnít see it as we rushed past it on our way into town on account of our concentrating on the dreadful, hazardous traffic chaos which is daily motoring in Naples city centre. After seeing some of the sights on a quick walk - memorable architectural, historic buildings - we were on our return to the cruise ship when we spied it, truly beautiful so out came the camera. This really is a wonderful fountain as it has several well presented statues so thereís plenty to see and appreciate, near the port in Naples."
