Why we got lost: twice

We were really hungry and prepared for the most famous pizza on earth: Neapolitan pizza. We left from the Piazza Garibaldi (close to the train station) along the Corso Umberto I, once again. We got lost, once more. Here’s the difficulty: Rick Steves’s maps and written directions.
His hand-drawn maps are brief on detail, but generally accurate and just good adequate to get you to his preferred destination. Each of his proposed restaurants are on By way of Petro Colletta. His directions inform you to take a proper off Corso Umberto I (the yellow street here), onto Through Petro Colletta. The intersections are all effectively-marked, so we walked along the Corso, checking every single intersection. As you can see above, there was no sign labelled &quotPetro Colletta&quot because the two streets do not intersect — contrary to Mr Steves’s words and drawings. So both occasions, we walked too far, nicely off this section of map. The second time, we gave up and returned to the tourist traps close to the train station. When I discovered this illuminated map in the Piazza, I cursed Rick Steves in 3 languages. We can roll with the unexpected when we travel, but this was the incorrect time: we had been tired, intimidated by a raucous city, and hungry. Mr Steves did us wrong — we did not eat Neapolitan pizza on this trip since he led us astray.

Who isn’t?


Forewords: on my laptop, it looks . On my workstation the colors are awfully over-saturated. How do they look to u?

The picture was taken at Castel Beseno (Trento, ).

Tone mapped image. I had to clone/heal out a large and invasive railing on the left, it took me a couple of hours…

I employed rawtherapee for raw conversion, qtpfsgui for tone mapping and gimp for all the editing. The mapping is a Fattal with alpha=.95, beta=.92 and saturation=1.

Hope you like it. It’s a pity that the white shirt of the guy on the correct was slightly overexposed in the original shot…
