Good job john! even I as Neapolitan could do better.

I looked at the Trip Advisor forums before going to Naples last week and from reading some of the comments on here I thought I had made a dreadful mistake in going there at all. I loved it !!! Napoli is a wonderful vibrant living city, It is not chocolate box pretty, nor a theme park but the sense of history is palpable. Beautiful churches everywhere, Visit the Sansevero chapel and gaze at the most fascinating, poignant and beautiful sculpture I have ever seen “the Veiled Christ by Giuseppe Sanmartino” Walk through the lovely friendly streets nearby. Visit the Archeological museum, the oldest in Europe and marvel at the mosaics and frescos recovered from Pompeii which are over 2000 years old and look as if they were created yesterday. Don’t miss visiting Pompeii itself and you will come away with the firm belief that we have invented absolutely nothing within the past two millenia apart from electricity and motorised transportation. Ischia is beautiful and well worth a visit. Take a walk along the promenade in the evening I felt perfectly comfortable strolling along it well after midnight on my way back to my hotel. The food is superb, prices are reasonable particularly when compared to Rome. I suppose to be perfectly objective about this there are a couple of observations that do need to be made. The area around the central station Piazza Garibaldi feels seedy even during daytime and I was also advised to avoid the Spanish quarter. The ongoing refuse collection issue is a little off putting and when we were there last week the aforementioned Piazza Garibaldi area was a disgrace with rubbbish piled high everywhere but it wasn’t quite so obvious in the Chiaia district where we stayed. Don’t be put off visiting Naples its a marvellous city and I will certainly be back.

All the emotions of travellers who have visited naples

Hi friends,
I  have decided to create a new category and to paste in it the most interesting descriptions that travellers have left on the forums to describe naples after their visit in the city.
I write the most beautiful sentences, which struck me, or give me good or bad emotions.
I hope that these help you to make a genuine idea about what a city like Naples has left in the heart of all people who visited it.
