They say “Vedi Napoli e poi muori! — See Naples and die!”, because there’s nothing more intense than Naples, so once you visit it, you might as well die. Indeed, you can’t blame whoever said that, for praising the beauties of the city. In the past it was the capital of the Kingdom of Naples and then Two Sicilies. The largest city in southern Italy (the Naples urban area has a population around 4 million) is both chaotic and fascinating, where luxury and poverty, happiness and sadness come together. Naples overwhelms you with its dizzying bustle, noisy people walking or shopping, plenty of motorcycles and scooters, sumptuous buildings flanked by palm trees and despite the frenetic traffic, this city is really complex and contrasting.
