It is not easy to know Naples, an intricate and beautiful city with an energy that at times is confused between the hubbub of the streets at peak times and in the animated chatter among the alleys, at the coffee counter, at the pizzeria tables, at the crowd on public transport.
The historic center of Naples “must” be discovered on foot: “Spaccanapoli” is the heart of the old city. The walk could preferably start from the Spanish Quarter and ends at Forcell, unmissable is a visit to the Church of Gesù Nuovo or to the Monastery of Santa Chiara.
A place that has always been a symbol of Naples is Piazza del Plebiscito, which offers a unique view of the Royal Palace with the statues of eight of the most important sovereigns who reigned over Naples.
Discover also the “underground Naples”, the most famous underground route in Naples to visit the hidden heart of the city with its Greek and Roman influences and, above all, relive the tragic days of the Second World War, when around 40.000 Neapolitans took refuge underground to escape Allied bombing and German retaliation.
To admire the most suggestive view of Naples, treat yourself to a walk on the promenade of Via Caracciolo with a view of Castel Dell’Ovo, the most ancient Castle in Naples, and the Maschio Angioino, an important fortress in the past and now Civic Museum of the city.
For lovers of the culinary art, it is unthinkable to take a trip to Naples without tasting the typical Neapolitan sfogliatelle, the babas which are both traditional sweets, and above all the real Neapolitan pizza!
