Naples – a great city worth a visit

Naples is an amazing city. Not to be missed.

We travelled to Naples in Summer so it was hot. But we always felt safe and thoroughly enjoyed the diversity the city has to offer

With almost 4 million inhabitants it is one of the largest cities in Europe and indeed one of the oldest continual inhabited cities dating back to 200BC

It has a flourishing port with many international cruise liners docking in the port.

 In the 19th century it formed an alliance with Sicily prior to becoming part of the unification of Italy

 The people are outgoing and the traffic chaotic

 Waiters at Mare Chiaro waiting for the first guests of the evening. Mare Chiaro is an upmarket  seaside area just outside the city of Naples. Most restaurants overlook the sea.

The view from a restaurant in Mare Chiaro

Palazzo Petrucci restaurant, on Piazza San Domenico Maggiore n. 4 is a must.

Regarded as one of the best in Naples the food and service is outstanding….and it will not break the budget

Seaside with restaurants

There are many fine hotels in Naples. This is the one we stayed in. Palazzo Alabardieri not far from the ocean. Great value and well located.
