In Italy it is said that Rome is an outdoor museum, and they are right, but Naples is a theatre under heaven, a unique place where to get lost and enjoy an exciting experience.
If you are lucky enough to visit one of the most colourful cities in Europe these are the things you have to see and do in Naples:
If you want to know Naples in depth, you can not miss the "Spaccanapoli". This zone divides the old city in north and south and it goes from the "quartieri spagnoli" to the Forcella neighborhood. Here we find the Duomo, the Basilica di San Domenico Maggiore and Piazza del Gesu, among other things.
PIAZZA DEL PLEBISCITO
Piazza del Plebiscito is located directly opposite the Royal Palace. Here you can relax sipping an icecream and watching the street life of the city. Another advantage of the place is that you can visit some of the most important buildings in the city such as the Royal Palace, the Basilica of San Francisco de Paula and the Prefecture Palace.
VIA SAN GREGORIA ARMENO
This street is very famous for its street markets and stalls that sell genuine sculptures of famous people of Italy. Among other things you can be surprised by a variety of crafts, gifts, Italian fashion and decorative items that reflect the Mediterranean culture.
In the Cappella Sansevero there is the Veiled Christ of Sammartino, a highly regarded work of art for the Neapolitans. The Cappella di Sansevero is located in Via Sanctis 19/21. You must remember that it is not allowed to take pictures inside, something that leaves a bitter after taste in many tourists.
To enjoy the best view of the Gulf of Naples Castel dell'Ovo is the ideal place. The entrance to the castle is free and if you go up to the "Terrazza dei Cannoni" you will find unbeatable views of the sea, the harbour and the Vesuvio, and here you can take all the photos you want.
