Lost in Naples – Part 1

Jammed with tourists from early spring through late fall, Naples is no way a peaceful retreat to recommend. However, once you have hit the city whose historic center dates back over 2,800 years, the compulsion to explore overtakes you. And off you amble to see the sights. Naples is home to the most beautiful, remarkable works of art of all times, and you rapidly find yourself traveling through time and art history. But there’s more to Naples than meets the eye!

I love the charge of this city. I adore the hustle and bustle of the busy streets; the dilapidated grandeur, the fashionable Italian women strutting down the sidewalk, chatting over a glass of wine or coffee on café terraces, the Catholic nuns running around in the city, the artists of all sorts… I hope you’ll enjoy the trip too!
