Just 40 miles from the dreamy Amalfi Coast you will find what Conde Nast calls “Italy’s seductive and colorful wild child”, Naples.
Often overlooked or feared, here is why I believe you should never pass up an opportunity to visit this historic city!
1. It’s Time to Experience Authentic Italy
Hanging laundry from balconies, Vespa’s, the sound of Italian everywhere--this is where it is at! You will be one of the few Americans and loving it!
2. The Food
Yes of course the Pizza is a must but you can also experience other amazing traditional dishes such as alici marinata (white sardines in olive oil) calamarrata (calamari pasta in a red sauce) or graffe (donuts made to eat when hot-AMAZING).
3. Naples Underground or better known as Napoli Sotterranea
Go by candle light underneath the city of chaos. You will learn about how the Greeks used the stone to build the city, see parts of the Roman theatre & even where there were shelters through WWII.
4. Castel dell'Ovo
One of oldest standing structures in Naples, this castle is on the former island of Megaride, which is now a place for foodies to enjoy a dining experience.
5. Posillipo: The wealthy Naples with great views
Take a walk down a quiet road shaded by umbrella pine trees. Enjoy a typical café or Enoteca without the chaos or even beautiful panoramas of seaside villas in Parco Virgiliano. Be one of the few tourists to have this rare & amazing experience.
