Naples is really chaotic, rough, vibrant and unique. It has an energy unlike any other city in Italy and is a lovely place to wander and discover the Italian lifestyle.

The ubiquitous laundry hangs in the sun while scooters speed down tiny but crowded alleyways. These are somehow shabby and elegant at once.  Adjusting to the local tempo is the name of the game in Naples. This is a city full of mystery, legend and wonder but also full of magic, superstition and numbers. Superstition, along with pizza, is one of the most known features of the Neapolitan people. There are a lot of different charms and talismans used against the bad luck (horseshoes, the number 13, cornicello – charm resembling a red pepper and many others).

Most Neapolitans are more than happy to learn about where you come from and to share a story about their city. My favorite moments were talking with people who really love this chaotic part of the world. A great way to get a taste of Naples. There is something incredibly intriguing about this beautiful coast line with Vesuvius in the background. I genuinely count down until I can get back there again.

TIP: Definitely eat some pizza napoletana while you’re there.

  1. Oooh I love your photos it looks like a brilliant place to explore.

    Is it quite polluted? The photos lok quite hazy, so I was wondering if that was down to air quality? We had to move away from London due to the terrible air quality, so I am not sure I am ready to visit another place that makes my astma terrrible. :(
