The Annual Feast Day Activities Of San Gennaro, 19 September

Will be in Naples from the 14th will this event be happening on the 19th September this year?

Will it be extremely busy? Is it worth a visit?

Kind regards and many thanks

shyleir, thanks for the 'heads up'. I'll be in Napoli on the 19th too and was totally unaware of this Feast Day: naplesnapoliguide.com/Napoli/…

I plan on being in attendance.

I'll look forward to hearing how it went - although you should also be aware that some years there's a good wait before the bishop's blood will deign to liquefy!

Last September however it was almost as though he had a point to make...

......................................

Should either of you have time in your schedule, Benevento - the place where Janarius was born, and of where he's said to have been bishop, is well worth a look!

Encouraged by not only this exchange....

... we finally spent a weekend there, back in mid-June.... and an exceptionally civilised city it turned out to be.

Still haven't dealt with most of the pictures, but a few can be seen here:

And, in the other direction, there's Pozzuoli - in whose amphitheatre he met his martyrdom... by beheading, after the lions wouldn't attack him - they say:

Is visiting Benevento from Naples ''do-able'' on public transport in a day? It looks really lovely and I like to get off the beaten track :)
