      I’ve just been walking around Naples and I’ve been inside Buon Pomeriggio Cathedral and San Paulo Maggiore. I’ve also seen a Banksy in a case outside a pizzeria and some great backstreets and entrances to apartments that used to be palaces.

        When I first went on there c.d. it was via a link on Safari. The sound was awful. I followed their advice and logged out and back in on Chrome and everything was perfect. You’ll get a guide occasionally hitting a spot with a poor signal which might last a very few seconds but these don’t occur very often and certainly not for long.

          It looks like the times listed correspond to the time zone that you are in. What time does it say the Ripper tour on the 13th starts for you?

You’ve probably heard of it Barn, I can’t recall if you’re Scottish but I seem to remember you mentioning a link to Scotland? I’m off to Naples at 5.00 I think.
            What a brilliant idea!

            Thanks for putting this out there, Herlock.

            I quite fancy the Daniel Liebeskind Berlin one, as I lived there briefly many years ago.

            Agreed, Dean Village is lovely.

            It feels like you're somewhere completely rural and not in a capital city at all.

            The Modern Art Gallery there is great too.

            I'm planning a visit to the cemetery there to visit John Irving's grave as soon as lockdown eases a bit.

              Sounds really interesting.

              Do they suggest a level of tip for the guide? I guess the usual cost of a walking tour would be a guide.

                The FAQ says pay what you are comfortable with.

                      Do you think we get to see each other on screen, kinda like a zoom meeting while the tour is going on?

                      That would be great.

                      We could instigate a kind of Ripper cliche drinking game......

                      "Charles Cross sees what he thinks is a tarpaulin". DRINK

                      "Liz screamed three times, but not very loudly". DRINK

                      It would help us identify other casebookers!

                        If we took a drink ever time Charles Cross gets mentioned we would all become alcoholics.

                          Ha! I was thinking more of all the old classic tropes and quotes which crop up in every book and documentary.
