Explore Naples

 

The image of Naples spread around the world seems to be a concentrate of all the stereotypes about Italians: noise, passion, romance, chaos along with mafia, fashion, spaghetti and mandolini...

There's much more beyond the surface. Maybe any cliché has its reason. You'll come to Naples and find a lively city, whose inhabitants are actually addicted to drama and disregard authorities. Everybody has an opinion to give, and does it in a quite loud and theatrical way. Life takes place out of doors: So take your chance and go for a coffee (the darkest and richest in all the country) and enjoy such spontaneous street performances.Discover the city of contrasts. Discover our tangled lanes and light gulf views, languid watersides and underground tunnels, castles, royal palaces and slums, sumptuous theaters and banned cult practices in grimy caves, roman ruins and sensual baroque churches, superstition and faith, high official culture and esoteric, A-list fashion boutiques and bustling market streets, finest tailors and vintage craftsmen studios, bohemian coffee-houses and tiny trattorie...

Remember that Naples has been a Greek culture centre, a Roman holiday resort, a cosmopolitan capital in medieval and renaissance times, one of the most densely populated cities in Europe during the Spanish Viceroy and a sparkling capital in Bourbon times, a sought-after destination for noble and educated offsping from all over Europe and every foreign ruler has left a mark on art and architecture, food and language, music and behaviors.
