Map of Naples

Naples is inhabited by a particular essence, one that either brings its guests to the very heights of elation, or drags them to the fiery depths of discontent. This is a place where enthralling culture and amazing cuisine are paired with an abundance of activity and noise.

Even today, a cultural duality persists in Naples, although in a slightly tweaked form. Traditionally the joys of food and the most scenic of natural surroundings were maladroitly complemented by organized crime and dilapidated neighborhoods. But in Naples' recent past Italy has taken notice of its culture, which persisted as captivating despite the many things working against it. Much to our delight, visitors to Naples now enjoy its fabled pizza and excellent wine before and after a performance at the famed San Carlo opera house and casual strolls through the mysterious labyrinth of ancient streets without feeling threatened. But do not be fooled: Naples is still an extremely energetic city with little to no order or organization. Naples can be thoroughly enjoyed if you're willing to take its idiosyncrasies in stride and consider them a lively complement to an exotic culture and cuisine that are begging to be embraced.
