A look back (first published 30 May 2015)
Royal hideaway in Portici, near Naples
It was a warm day and we were on an old road in a corner of what used to be a royal park. It is now university grounds but still has that swish of palaces, intrigue and celebrity at play.
In front of us a smallish red building curved its face to catch views of Vesuvius and the sea. This, we were told, was where the king entertained his mistresses. Instantly the Italian guide had our attention.

Thank you for telling us about Portici. We visited yesterday and it was a day well spent. We wouldn’t have known about it if not for you. Great photographs!
That’s so good to hear – thanks. I also have to add that I would never have heard about it if it had not been for a trip organised by the Commonwealth Ladies 🙂
