Naples is unique in the world, there are no cities that can be comparable. First of all for its alleys, noisy, messy but full of life. Then for people, for their extroversion and originality. In Naples it is impossible don’ t talk to anyone . The Neapolitans love to relate, talk with everyone. Their kindness and hospitality makes the stay in this city something that is difficult to forget. Below I want to list quickly and without any pretension of exhaustiveness all those extraordinary signs that we have known and taken away with us. I plan to investigate in the next posts some aspects that certainly deserve a moment of further attention. We stayed at BB Carafa di Maddaloni, in full Spaccanapoli. They gave us the suite of the Duke, beautiful and very large, evocative in every detail. In the middle of the enormous Carafa palace of Maddaloni, one of the splendors of the Neapolitan Baroque architecture, the BB is an integral part of a musical academy. Our room was adjacent to another, equipped with a nice piano, where teaching activities are usually held. Breakfast is included in the price, with pastiera sfogliatelle and other wonders.
What don’ t miss in Naples:
Cristo Velato, by Sammartino, one of the most evocative sculpture in the world. In the Cappella Sansevero.
Streets of Naple, in particolare Spaccanapoli, a real open air theatre. Where we can eat anytime.
Villa la Floridiana in Vomero. A beautiful Villa overlooking the sea. We saw an exibition of ancient ceramics with an exibition of the World of henry Potter. My Kids tryied the talk hat and drunk the Burrobirra.
The District of Vomero, with nice shops and nice funicolare.
Naples subway, efficient and with beautiful arts works. The most beautiful subway in Europe. Known af Arts subway. Works of italians artists make it precious.
Chat and be challenged with the rector of University of math, University of the street.
– Spend a morning in the fascinating underground Naples. If you suffer claustrophobia, like me, some underground path will save you. Take a nutty coffee and a sfogliatella to Caffè Gambrinus, majestic and welcoming. Above all, eat pizzafritta in one of the Sorbillo’s shops. There’s a line up, but it’s one of the strongest dining experiences I’ve everdonne . For a little while ‘wait we went to their headquarters in Vomero. Stroll along the promenade of Naples. A walk that you will not forget. Two at least steps to do. Take a coffee at Borgo Marinari where it seems the time has stopped and visit the Castel dell’Ovo, one of the most emblematic places in the city, where inside are often set up photographic exhibitions
